For many, including me, cooking is one of the best parts of camping. Enjoying a great meal in nature is an experience so simple, yet so rewarding. 

To make the most of it, we need a good quality camp stove that will be able to perform regardless of the conditions. 

Thankfully, Camp Chef has us covered; however, out of all the options offered, which Camp Chef 2 burner stove should you choose for camping?

Best Camp Chef 2 Burner Stove – Expedition 14

The Expedition 14 is the cheapest stove in the 14-inch family. The fact that it is part of the 14-inch cooking system means it is compatible with other 14-inch 1-burner and 2-burner set-top accessories such as griddles, pizza ovens, BBQ boxes, cast iron cookery, and more. 

The Expedition 14 is also powerful, featuring two burners that can produce 30000 BTU each. This means you will have the power to cook those bigger meals and get everything hot quickly, even in low temperatures.

It also offers three windscreens which are very important when cooking outdoors as they keep the flames running even if it is windy. However, they are a bit short and might not be as effective as needed.

This stove also offers matchless ignition – a feature that seems small yet is so helpful. No need to worry about where you’ve put the matchbox or the lighter. You just twist a knob, and you are ready to cook.

One of the drawbacks of this specific stove when it comes to camping is the legs. They are removable but not foldable. Therefore, when packed, you need space both for the legs and for the stove. 

To save space, I would leave the legs at home and maybe use the stove on a steel table.

The weight of the Expedition 14 is 51.9 pounds which is on the heavier side; however, for the power offered, this is expected. All in all, this is a great option for your camping cooking needs!

Best Camp Chef 2 Burner Stove – Pro 14

Similarly to the Expedition 14, the Pro 14 offers the same 14-inch design, 30000 BTU burners, matchless ignition, and windscreen. 

However, it has an important upgrade that sets it apart from the Expedition 14, and that is foldable legs with leg levers. 

This may seem small and insignificant; however, when setting up and packing down a campsite each day for weeks on end, ease of use becomes very important.

With this unit, you just fold down the legs, and the whole stove can be stored as a compact unit. No need to deal with four poles like the Expedition 14. 

The legs also feature leg levers that ensure you can even out your cooking surface on rough ground. Again, this makes life off grid far easier than a stove that features fixed-length legs. 

The weight of the stove comes in at 48.5lbs, which is still pretty heavy, but for the features you get, it’s worth overlooking the weight.

Best Camp Chef 2 Burner Stove – Big Gas Grill 14

Finally, we have the most expensive option, which is the
Big Gas Grill 14.

The party piece of this grill is that it offers endless cooking possibilities in a compact and efficient package. This grill comes with the Deluxe BBQ Grill Box, bake, roast, grill, and more on one convenient unit. This bundle has everything you will ever need to cook at camp.

Its specs and features are similar to the ones above with 30000 BTU burners, removable but not foldable legs, and 14-inch accessory compatibility.

This grill weighs a hefty 85 pounds, which may be a bit excessive when it comes to packing it up for camping. But, if you car camp, have a camper, or camp in an RV, the added weight might be worth it.

In my opinion, the best Camp Chef 2 burner stove for camping is the Pro 14, and this is solely due to the foldable and adjustable legs.

It is a powerful and quality stove adapted to work in camping conditions which is important. 

A normal stove can get frustrating when cooking in nature due to uneven ground and packing.

If you want to take your cooking game a little further, you can also purchase some of the 14-inch accessories offered by Camp Chef that will fit on the Pro 14.
