    • Denise,
      We are sorry to hear about the loss of your stove legs. If you give our customer service number a call, they can get you squared away. 1-800-650-2433

  1. Really looking forward to this stove getting here should be tomorrow or next day. We are a Boy Scout troop and it looks perfect I will write a report on it as soon as I get some miles on it. It will get used heavily.

    • Dorene, when cooking with propane there is always that possibility. Camp Chef burners have an O2/propane mixture valve. If you see a lot of yellow flame, this should be adjusted. Contact our Customer Service for more information. (800) 650-2433 They’re excellent and will walk you through how to do this.

  2. Great stove. Is there a carry bag available for it? I bought the 3 Burner Carry Bag which advertises that it fits all 3 burner stoves. However the Explorer 3X does not fit in it!

  3. I have the expedition 3 burner stove now for 8 years love it , when it no longer works I will definalty buy another, its the best ….

  4. I am purchasing the Explorer 3X. What grill fits the stove? the SG100 is 16X38 vs tje 14X49 cooking surface on the stove. Frustration with old models is cleaning out food and grease that may drop down under burner without unscrewing the plate under the burner – has that been solved? Do the grates on the top of the stove remove – again for easier cleaning? Thank you.

  5. Are there leg extensions for my EX90 3 burner stove? Sits a little low for my liking. Perhaps another 10in in height.

  6. I’m the Scoutmaster for a Boy Scout Troop. We were just donated a 3 burner stove that looks like the Explorer 3X, but the gas lines and valves are different (probably an older model). My problem when we tested it out is one of the valves is not closing all the way, so the burner is constantly on while the gas is turned on at the tank. Is there an o-ring placement kit or do I need to replace the valve? Will the current valve fit my stove? The valves on our stove are a lever style.

  7. I am looking into getting the Explorer 3X. I have one question, Camp Chef has a Igniter that can be added to the Explorer2 and 3x. I understand how to install them but on the middle burner of the Explorer 3X it looks like the gas supply line/tube will get in the way of the Igniter. I was wondering if the Igniter fits properly on the middle burner of the Explorer 3X?
