If you have ever been camping, you know that mother nature will not always schedule great weather. Wet weather can really make it difficult to cook your dinner. It sounds so fun, sitting around an open fire, cooking sausages and corn. The reality is that you really need to be a fire expert to get a proper flame for cooking food safely and timely. That’s why we were so thrilled to try cooking on our Woods™ Double Burner Camping Stove & Grill.
A great feature of this cooking stove is that it is super easy to assemble. All you need to do is unpack, remove the metal propane connector and you are pretty much ready to go.

Then you just flip up the metal sides of the cooker. This is a great feature to help keep the cooking temperature even if you have some wind. It is a nice added extra.
There it is – less than 2 minutes to set up and you are ready to go. Just make sure you put the stove on a stable surface. We propped ours on a picnic table.
We decided to cook sausages and a big pot of fresh local corn purchased at a roadside stand. I love summer in Canada! I was not sure how long it would take to heat up that big pot of corn – at the same time as we had the burner cooking the sausages.
Don’t be fooled by the size of this stove. We fit 9 sausages and one burger patty onto the grill. We also had 7 corn cobs cooking on the burner.
This stove can really cook! It didn’t take more than 2 minutes to get the corn in a full boil. Next time, I will start the meat first and then light the corn as I believe corn shouldn’t boil for more than 5 minutes – to avoid it getting soggy and losing taste.
The temperature control makes it really easy to adjust temperatures. I think I was over compensating initially, as I didn’t realize how much heat would be projected..some of the sausages got a little well done. I know in the future that high really means high on this cooking stove.
And don’t forget the classic smore’s for dessert! We couldn’t resist!
This was a great, quick camp night dinner. We try to keep our meals simple when we are out camping. It is so easy to do so in the summer, particularly as there are so many fresh fruits and vegetables available. My next campfire recipe will likely include grilled corn, chicken kebobs, sauteed zucchini and tomatoes and grilled peaches for dessert. Yum.
I’m really impressed with the size and power of the Woods™ Double Burner Camping Stove & Grill. The compact size makes it easy to pack and transport. The reliability of the cooking temperatures made dinner ready and available on time. No surprises, which is a really terrific way to end a day camping.
