Snow Peak Addiction

Can anyone who owns the recently released Grill Burner comment on its heat output in respect of cooking results? Only 7000 BTU makes me worried that it is too weak to do any serious searing. Would also appreciate comments on the ease of cleaning and sticking properties of the cast iron.
Haven’t used it myself. It’s marketed as a slow cook option. If your doing thinly sliced highly marbled meat like the Japanese prefer it would be ideal. I doubt it would cut the mustard for a Rib Steak or the like.
As far as the cast goes if it’s anything like their Dutch Oven range you will never have an issue with food sticking.

RE: SP’s New Kitchen Stand Initial Review

This is a continuation on my previous posts regards to the new kitchen stand. After assembling my setup, including some of the accessories and 2 cookouts, I have some additional thoughts about it.


Thank you very much for the review. I've asked SP directly but nothing back yet. Do you have a photo of it as it would be transported?

Thank you,

James

get some good current pics
have to come up with a price just busy with work life :) so more a heads up :)
want to move it all together at first before I start breaking it up cause I know that will get asked
I might break it up into certain pieces together ?
I live in PHX so local pickup I would ship at just cost of shipping how someone wanted and I can pack really well since I am from Maui I know how to pack for shipping :) hahahahahahah

also my landlock tent and ground mat and roof cover asking $1200 obo for that

why someone might ask ? getting back to super simple basics is why
my plan have my kids make alcohol stoves get some nice backpack pots teach them how to do that self reliant camping cooking so they have those skills and more super simple gear ? we shall see

If anyone is interested in this unopened (Japan only, not available in the US) LH-103KH. They work as both a ottoman or firewood holder. I thought I purchased 4 but ended up purchasing and having shipped 5 of them. So don't need one. Message me. Will sell for the Japanese price of 100.00 USD. You need to pay for shipping or if the in the Bay area, I can arrange to pickup in the South Bay. (Chair in photo for usage purpose/ not for sale).

Has anyone tried out the Uniflame Stretcher? Any good?

Which SP bag for the new Kitchen table?
I finally got around to putting away the new kitchen table. I purchased the 4U Carrying Case. I have a 4U IGT frame that also needed to be stored. After inserting the IGT frame and the two shelves, the bag is snug. Just right to get it back out without too much effort but not enough room to store the legs and top bar.

Next I removed the IGT 4U frame and tried inserting the legs, crossbar, etc. They were just a little too long to squeeze in. If SP made a larger Jikaro Carrying Case (in slightly larger 4U size), I suspect this would be enough thickness to accommodate all the parts.

One thing I took notice is the two mounts for mounting the top bar protrude. So when storing in a bag, one has to be mindful not to place too much force on the bag when lying down flat. I can see these mounts getting bent or damaged if something heavy fell on them. Temporarily, I plan on storing something else that can fit between these mounts and provide a cushion. I’m hoping SP will provide something more practical for the new kitchen table.

I don't remember what vendor it was at the Overland Expo in Flagstaff over the weekend, and we were in a rush to get to some moto training, but someone had a Snow Peak IGT displayed and said that Snow Peak would be at the Expo next year.

Good info. Got a 4U bag and can store the other parts in other bags.

So I ended up getting the Grill Burner and my impressions are overall positive. Heat is medium, the overall design is attractive.

I note the following things; does anyone else have the following experience?
  1. Flame flickers at the end of the "U" shape burner where the gas connection comes in, specifically the very last hole.
  2. On a low simmer, the gas makes a whistling noise that is more pronounced than usual, again on the gas input end of the "U" shape
  3. On a low simmer, the half of the "U" shape burner closest to the gas input burns noticeably more strongly than the other half, which has a weaker flame.
  4. On the flame control dial, which has a turn of about 90 degrees, a 45 degree turn and the flame is already out. So much for fine simmer control?
  5. The steel side panels on each side that protects the burner (with a circular cutout for a BBQ lighter) is actually very thin and if you pull the nylon straps too tight when storing, you'll bend these steel side panels. I also note it's a finicky task to get the Grill Burner in and out of its storage bag in general.
  6. The gas tube is fairly short, and if you use the Grill Burner standalone, it may not be possible to hang the gas canister off the side of the burner because the canister is too big. If you do not leave the gas canister upright, flames can be uneven due to liquid injection (which I do not think this burner is built for).
Overall, and assuming most other people have the above experience, this burner is highly reliant on its cast iron griddle to evenly distribute heat and prevent hot spots. Notwithstanding the gripes above, it's a beautiful device.

It's been a great run with our Snowpeak IGT but with the four wheel camper, I don't need it anymore. And as cool as it is, it's not fair to just let it sit in the garage. It's up for grabs in the FS forum. There are more pics in the link below. Also have a 22" partner steel that's pretty much brand new....

Those stainless steel side trays are calling my name.... GLWS.
Whoever buys this, hit me up. That set could use my storage kit! ;)
