camp cookstove

Question

I tried posting this in the camping section and haven't gotten any help yet so I thought I'd try here.

I bought a new Camp Chef 3-burner cookstove this spring. The grille box works well, but the griddle is just a flat cast iron piece that spans 2 burners. The griddle does not distribute heat well at all and the spots over the burners get too hot. Anyone have any ideas on modifying this setup to get a more even distribution of heat?

I'm not familiar with that model but you could try forming some type of metal shield with holes in it and place it between the burners and the griddle, similar to what gas grills have.

Is the griddle made out of very thin metal?

I think that thedeadsea is right. I'm not familiar with your model of stove, but my guess is that the problem is a function of the metal used in the griddle more than anything else. A good cast iron piece will distribute heat evenly. Try experimenting or search the web to see if others have had the same issue.

You might find more useful information at a camping-specific forum or website.

Maybe try turning down the heat. Cast iron heats very evenly if heated slowly, if you pour the coals to it even a cast fry pan will have a hot spot.

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?

      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
