@Shadow, just trying to figure out stoves right now as well. How often do you use all three burners?

Everyone else....2 burners or 3 and why?

I just have 2 burners, cause I wanted the camp chef oven, and it came with 2. There are times when both are full and a third would be nice, but most of the 3 burner stoves have them so close together I'm not sure you can really use them as 3 burners. I think if I needed a third burner frequently I would use one of these. https://express.google.com/product/9657 ... mpaign=gsx

I pretty much never need more than two burners. Most of the time it's just one but that really depends on how you cook. Camp chef two burner is my go to, although I've been looking at one of those single burner butane ones posted above. I foeget the manufacturer, but somebody makes those that run on either butane or propane.

If you have an Asian market you can find those butane single burner stoves cheap. And the butane fuel is so much cheaper than anyplace online. I have also seen them in double burner stoves. Great little stoves, but they struggle above 11'000 feet.

I got a 2 burner drop in hooked to a coleman can no issues but not really into it..yep.plumbing leaks yada and low btus...so I went back to my Coleman hobby were I got 5 to 7 easy pieyable white gas stoves to choose from...every thing white gas from single burners to large 3 burners...single burners heat coffee light charcoal suit gas normal 2 burners get used for cooking food and grill partys,at home. 3 burners was just to have I collect colemans...backing packing stoves are for fast easy freeze,dried meals..or quad camping trips..slow.

Can attest to that. A few months ago, a representative at Partner Steel told me their burner is 27 PSI. For reference, the low-pressure side of an RV propane system (11 WC inches) is roughly 0.5 PSI. I think the typical "Coleman" camping stove runs at 10-15 PSI (don't quote me on that). So, just to make that clear: Almost no stock camping stove will run properly connected to a low-pressure propane system. Most have a built-in pressure regulator and must be connected to a high-pressure source (tank or quick-connect fitting), which IS a safety concern. Thankfully, since most cooking in a teardrop takes place outdoors, the safety risk is mitigated.

I use a two stage regulator and it feeds a gas grill, three burner cook top and a 6gal water heater. "The outlet pressure is 11"WC and has a 160,000 BTU/hr capacity."

I have both 2 & 3 burner Coleman white gas.
Last 5 years I have only used the 2 burner stove.
It's lighter and takes up less space.
Last, think about how often you use 3 burners at the same time at home?
