Cheeseburgers and corn on the cob in camp? Heck yeah! Grill-and-cook combo menus are easy with this piezo-ignited*, propane-fired, clamshell two-burner. “I grilled burgers on one side while boiling a giant pot of water for corn on the other,” says our gear editor. “At breakfast, I set a big griddle over the entire cooking surface and cranked out pancakes for a crowd.” The stainless steel casing proved bombproof through a season of garage-trunk-camp trips, and the removable, nonstick grill surface is easy to clean.
