Partner Steel Stoves
I'm in need of a little retail therapy and I'm sick of buying stoves that don't last. So, this is my target.
I'm having a little trouble with all the options... 2/3/4/6 burner, 16"/18", hinges, etc. I'm thinking that three burners are a bit unnecessary as the burners end up being so close together to use three pots, but would be nice for use with a griddle. Thoughts, experience? Would be nice to have a 5 burner (2 on one side and three on the other). I'm planning on buying the stand, so the hinge issue is a bit moot. Might consider the breakaway option so I can have the option to only bring two burners on a light weight trip.
If I go for the four, any real issues between 16" and 18"? I'm not thinking I will put it in an ammo can (I believe this is the reason for the 16"). Should I? (I plan on keeping the hoses in a drybox or drybag.) My understanding is that the stoves are bomber and that is not necessary. Looks like the large griddle will fit nicely on either.
Any place local to the Denver/Boulder area that carry these? Looks as though DRE and AAA do not. No retailer list on the Partner Steel site.
Thanks in advance.
