    Hi,

    Looking to get a simple camp style propane cooktop for canning tuna, and cooking crab outside since the smell kinda gets the wife uneasy. Also want to be able to melt some lead. I see a variety of models and price ranges out there. Also trying to consider a single or double burner.

    Any suggestions or recommendations?

    Thanks and Happy New Year!!
    Jeff

    I have a triple I got from Costco. It fires like a rocket ship and came with a two burner griddle for those times I fry up a few pounds of bacon and a couple of dozen eggs.

    A single is easier to move around, but sometimes you just really need a crew served cooking device...

    Yep, I'd hold off until spring when Costco has the 3 burner explorer in stock again. Great unit and really sturdy.

    Get a 1/8-1/4" piece of plate steel to put on your burners, then set your pressure cookers on that. Safer for them than right on the high flame.

    I wouldn't use the same burner for lead. I have one dedicated for that. Just my .02
