Snow Peak Addiction

I am looking at the IGT for my next build. Either integrate off the large drawer that will hold my fridge or freestanding. I will build in compartments for storage in the rear of the defender 110. I plan on an IGT 4 with single BBQ box or possibly the new gas grill. I find gas easier to deal with but lack of top/windscreen disappointing. I camp in the desert a lot and wind tends to be an issue. I bring my Weber Q1000 on most trips because it grills so well but the lid is essential for heat. Only downside to Weber is size.

I am going back and forth about the pros and cons of 2 Baja burners vs the double burner for my primary stove. Roughly the same price for two burners, 11k vs 12k BTU, 2 spots in the IGT table. Both can stand on their own with the double obviously larger. Input?

Check out Adventure Curated on IG. They’ve incorporated an IGT into their Landcruiser build. Quite impressive.

That's pretty brilliant. The frame and extension can do double duty, fully removed, or partially extracted. I'm so copying that. I've just been fitting my IGT frame on edge, between the cooler and storage box...

I’ve been contemplating doing the long bamboo integration, since I use it standalone with some holes I created in my tailgate cutting-board cover, but the IGT integration is great too. Today I just have the bamboo slide in vertically next to the fridge. I think I’ll be building something to allow both to slide out, like this. I use the SS boxes for kitchen storage, so it would be nice to have 2U or even 3U slide out to hold the box(s) above my work surface, or fully deploy as table.

Well, the double burner does have cover that can be used as a windscreen, but I don't think it can be used if the burner is dropped into an IGT frame. SP did/does make a windscreen, but are practically impossible to get. When you see one though, you'll realize that you could make something up pretty easy.

Everybody's situation is different, but I rarely wish for a second burner. For me, one Baja is enough. Plus, the double burner takes two fuel canisters.

Really like the integration in that setup. I did see that earlier which sparked my interest in a dual purpose system. Definitely nice to drop in one stove for a quick meal rather than pulling out the whole setup. I'm also contemplating attaching one end to my fridge pull-out and then 2 legs for stability on the other end. Its going to take a few rounds of drawings and mull it over.

I will have gullwing storage on the sides for kitchen gear so wont need a drawer in back.

I missed out on a double burner on eBay but am leaning toward Baja burners now for versatility. Snow peak has a decent deal on the website for an IGT4 with corner, table and legs. I have enough depth in the rear of defender to accommodate the table. Want to build in some thin shelving to store the tables and legs either flat or on edge. Sketching out idea and doing measurements.

Problem with West Coast camping and the snow peak bbqs is fire bans. Limits our use of charcoal. I really like the camp oven and was wondering if it would get hot enough over the dual burner or 2 baja burners. I'm not sure if you want the heat directly on the pizza stone as it may cause hot spots. Would be really cool if the 'oven' had a temp gauge on the front lid.

Not related to cooking, but do any of you Snow Peak aficonados have experience with their High Tension Cots? I can't find any user reviews anywhere. Sizewise, it looks like two of them side by side would work as a base for our Exped Megamat Duo and function as a double bed. I'm not impressed with the few cots meant for two that I've investigated so far.

No experience with the cot in question, but after just buying a Helinox Cot One Max, I would find it hard to believe that anyone could make a tighter cot. It packs small, and with the optional legs, sits up nice and high, if desired. And it is pretty darn big, big enough for my Mega Mat. The lever action in the frame stretchers is the secret sauce.

You'd be into it for about the same at the SP, so you're not afraid of cost...

Cool, thanks for your recommendation. I will check it out.

Hey everyone!

I admit I haven't worked my way through all of the 200+ pages of this thread, please don't be mad.
I've become kind of a Cappuccino/Cafe Latte addict and since snowpeak offers a set for exactly this, i wanted to ask for your opinions/reviews.

Pretty much all their Snow Peak gear is 20% off on the site, not just what is in the link.

$600 later.... my husband can never know the truth. "oh this old thing? I've had this for yearrrrrsssssss"
