Woke up to some nasty wind and rain here, than all of a sudden power went out. No big deal , they get the power back on fairly quick, be that as it may, I woke up hungry and today (sunday) is my "big breakfast" day. So, I figured id dust off the ole grill and get cooking. For what they are and how cheap they can be had, I luv these 2 burner stoves.

So, first up is my bacon. With high heat and small pan, it takes no time to cook up a nice breakfast.

Eggs a cookin

I toasted the toast over the flames of the grill, turned out good.

Here is the final product. Posting via Dell laptop with alltel aircard

for entertainment , I fired up the ole Grundig SW radio to see what was going on in the world.

Some OJ, Bacon & Eggs, couple slices of toast and my ole trusty SA 1911.

*sorry for the dark pics, but it was pretty crappy outside (dark and gloomy)

very nice post, good looking breakfast,,like the gas bottle holder, did it come with that?

what brand is your stove, I have an OLD, 1960's coleman that works great, have 2 fuel cannisters for it so, no stopping the food while changeing the gas..etc..but, they are a pain in the ass to pump, repump etc while prepping dinner especially, breakfast being pretty quick cooking
so, thinking of getting a newer propane, cheaper etc as a back up..dont want to spend more then $50

The stove is a cheap Jansport I picked up locally about 8 years ago. No priming or pumping. The only thing I dont like is the long flimsy brass line from bottle to stove, so I have to make sure its secure. Ive always got a single burner attachment for the top of the 1lb bottles as well.

My wifes pissed at you. I had to go giver her a nudge and tell her to rattle them pots and pans

You can replace that brass line with a flexible hose at a propane shop. Then you can use a regular 20lb tank. That will cook a lot of vittles. Good breakfast to you get a definite 10. WJ

power was off here for a couple hours early this morning.

i celebrated the return of power by eating generic spam i got from aldi and making myself a cup of instant coffee that was from a jar I got 16 years ago in China.

Where are you located? I must be south of you because the front line hit us about 10 or so. Our power went, well .... the neighborhood power grid went out at 10:30. Since most of my house is now off grid I don't hardly even notice it. Just when a ups starts beeping that is on the same circuit as the microwave. Then a quick flip of the transfer switch and the microwave circuit is now running through the inverter.

How long will one of the 1lb bottles last you while cooking on that stove? My grill has a side burner and I keep 6 spare 20lb bottles full for it but I want to get a small propane stove similar to that.

I have a 20lb bottle and adaptor to refill the lil bottles. I also have a rubber hose to connect the big bottle as well.

I can get ALOT of meals out of a 1lb bottle. I cant really say for sure since I dont use it much. But that bottle ive got hooked up is about 5 years old and hasnt run out yet. These stoves are pretty efficient.

Im in the Tampa/St Pete area. it hit us hard around 7am.

I'm in Cape Coral. We didn't get hit hard but with having no rain for so long the crud built up on the power pole insulators. Walking the dog this morning I could hear them all buzzing real loud when the humidity was rolling in in front of the line. Then sure enough it starts raining and out it goes.

10\10...I'd devour it!!!!

Mmmmmm....bacon. Now I'm hungry.

Glad you were able to ride out the storm in comfort.

Looks great.

I am amazed at how many people cant figure out how HANDY a propane camp stove is when the power is out.

In my town here we lost power a few years ago. The outage lasted 2 days. People were going nuts because they could not cook, could not do much of anything and in the end, they ended up spending major cash to eat out in the casinos instead of making a nice home cooked meal on a camp stove.

They are so cheap it does not make sense not to have at least ONE and a few bottles of propane these days :) I love when the power goes out.. I bring 2 of my stoves out and get them ready to make some food.. lol

I like it. Was going to give you a 9.5 for no knife, but I decided the breakfast looked too good not to give you a 10/10.
