partner steel recommendations

I am considering a Partner Steel stove for the 8th season in row. I tend to go with 10-14 people for week long trips. Which partner steel stove and accessories would you recommend and why? Is there a stove which is better than the usual car camper coleman that is anything close to a partner that doesn't cost an arm and a leg?
Thanks

Get the four burner that fits in a rocket box. I think that walmart or sombody copied the parten design with steel a few years back. I believe that they were a good bit cheaper than the partner. The price is not that bad considering that they last forever. I've had my partner stove for about 12 years and I figure I could still sell it in the gear swap for a couple hundred if I wanted to.

16" 4 burner with rocket box. I use for both boating and tailgating. I have used the camp chef 3 burner, Coleman tailgater and other various grills. Partner is by far the best. I look at it this way - I can buy a piece of shit four or fives times for $100 - $150 or drop $375 on a partner and have it forever. They are worth every penny!

If you are grilling up steaks will have to probably go in multiple waves but I find the 4 burner to have the most utility and it fits inside a rocket box which keeps it safe.

The stove stand is a must. No more taking up valuable table top space and the freedom to set it up where ever is best suited.

I second the stove stand. They are a bit heavy but they are very sturdy. also makes a great place to support and store a garbage bag even with the stove on top.

I prefer the larger 4 burner stove, but I don't stuff mine into an ammo can. I also like the breakdown feature and highly recommend it.

Agree. I like the extra room b/w burners for large skillets and pots. Plus my two 18" PS "lasagna pans" (a special order made by Harvey which I use instead of both griddles and pots) fit perfectly side by side on the two sets of burners.

I second (or like 6th now?) the four burner stove. I have a 2 burner its great for small groups but if it involves more than 4 people we usually have to bust out a second stove (in addition to a burner).

I don't understand the desire to put in a rocket box. Is that to protect it from getting dented and allow you to place alongside your stack of groovers, etc? Kind of a waste to saddle such a lightweight stove with the 20 lb heavy rocket box. .... (I put mine in a 2nd drybox that weighs only 34lbs and carries 4x the capacity ...

I am contemplating the purchase of a Partner stove as well. Is the 4 burner you are all recommending a break away? I used a two burner break away this past summer and thought it was an awesome stove.
