When you go shopping for a new camping grill or stove, you should know what the difference is between the two.  Camping Grills and camping stoves both cook your food and they are both available in small, large and portable styles.  Both also can be fueled by charcoal, propane or gas.  These are obvious differences to the naked eye.  But what’s not always obvious is this.  A camping grill allows the

A camping stove transfers the heat from the fire to the food through a pot or pan.  Camping stoves normally don’t have a grate or grill but instead have a heating element to rest a pot or pan on.  Camping stoves are good for cooking things like eggs, bacon, hash browns, potatoes, beans, chili, hot dishes and other things you need to put in a pot or pan.  They are normally less messy and easier to clean.  I actually prefer Camping grills because they are easier to start , I like the charbroiled taste of the food and they are easier to keep clean; leaving more time for other camping activities.  I recommend you check out the Weber Gas-Go Anywhere Grill.
