In support of emergency preparedness, we’ve put together a list of gear that our Camp Chef family has said is the best to have when things go wrong. Add a few to your kit today:

You’ll be able to cook what you want, where you want, which will be a huge relief when disaster strikes.

If a single burner stove isn’t going to cut it, rely on the rugged Explorer to provide you with the cooking power you need for your whole family. Two 30,000 BTU burners pack enough power to boil water and cook food with ease. The steel construction is durable and light enough to transport wherever you need to go; the removable legs make it especially portable. In poor weather, the three-sided windscreen protects your flame and maintains heat. In other words, this stove is perfect for group cooking in the best and worst of times.
