Upon first glance, the Camp Chef Mountain Series Everest and Teton seem a lot a like. They are excellent stoves to take with you wherever your next adventure may be. Their lightweight and compact design make them extremely portable so you can easily pack them in the back of your car and be off for a weekend trip to your favorite campground. Perfect for cooking a meal for your family or group of friends. Warm pancake breakfast? Grilled chicken or burgers? The Everest and Teton will easily handle cooking your meals from sun up to sun down.
They are quite similar, until you take a look under the hood. The Everest stove features two 20,000 BTU burners and the Teton features two 12,000 BTU burners. But don’t presume that the Teton is short-handed, it certainly is not. We put these two stoves to the test to see how each would perform.
Everest 20,000 BTU burner Teton 12,000 BTU burner
For the Everest, we cooked up a traditional pancake breakfast of Pancakes, eggs and bacon using a steel Universal Fry Griddle. On a low heat setting, the Everest heated up that steel griddle in no time and was ready to take on cooking our breakfast. It seemed like a cinch to heat and maintain that heat while cooking this meal. Oh yeah, and the food was delicious!
On to the Teton. (Below) Using the aluminum Mountain Series Griddle we decided to see how it would handle grilling burgers and such. The non-stick surface of the griddle did a great job and the Teton cooked the burgers without a hitch. Its 12,000 BTU burners proved to produce plenty of cooking power to cooking and keep cooking without even slowing down. We through some cheese on and after grilling some onions to go on the burger we also toasted our bread. Fantastic.
We also wanted to see how quickly we could boil water on these stoves. The Everest, with its 20,000 BTU burners, boiled 2 quarts of water in about 6 1/2 minutes and the Teton wasn't far behind at about 8 1/2 minutes.
We were pleasantly surprised with how well both of these stoves cooked. The Teton’s burners were awesome and where the extra heat and power found in the Everest’s will really come in handy is when the temperature drops or the wind really picks up.
Either way, you won’t go wrong with one of these stoves if you’re looking for the perfect stove for that quick weekend trip or Saturday morning breakfast outside.
