For some people, the best part of camping is cooking outdoors. There’s just something about it. Cracking an egg into a cast iron skillet with the sun coming up on a crisp morning is about as good as it gets. But some take it further. They aren’t afraid to tackle grand meals rivaling even the ones they cook at home. These outdoor grill masters need serious gear. A lone cast iron pan sitting over the coals isn’t going to cut it. This is where the Camp Chef lineup comes into play. They have every single outdoor cooking scenario covered, and today I’m going to talk about the Camp Chef Pro 60X Two-Burner Stove.
I did some cooking on this stove in the woods last week, and I was very impressed. The accessories I tried out were top notch, but first, let’s talk about the stove itself. First off, it’s powerful. That’s one thing I’ve always appreciated about Camp Chef’s line, and the Pro 60X has two 30,000 BTU burners. That’s enough flame to get anything done. The Pro 60X also has built-in leg levelers, which is necessary when cooking outdoors. I found the windscreen to be ample, and the side shelves provide quite a large amount of extra space for condiments and ingredients.
Onto the coolest part about the Camp Chef Pro 60X – the accessories! When telling friends about this stove, I’ve been calling it a modular system, because that’s how it feels. Everything fits together perfectly. It doesn’t move around, and it’s effortless to create different cooking setups in a matter of seconds. I tested the Flat Top Griddle 30, the Artisan Outdoor Oven 30, and the Deluxe BBQ Grill Box 30. As you probably already guessed, the Pro 60X will hold any two of those “30” accessories. This makes the system fun to use, and the possibilities are endless. You can cook a pizza and have wings in the grill box. Maybe you have pancakes on the griddle, and you’re smoking sausages in the grill box. How about chicken breasts and asparagus in the grill box and a pie in the oven for dessert?
You can start to see how this elevates your campsite cooking to an entirely different level. You don’t have to downsize your menu and try to figure out which meals you’ll be able to make with limited options. You can go BIG, and you’ll have fun doing it. The Camp Chef Pro 60X and all three accessories came with sturdy cases that made it much easier to tote around. If you’re getting the system, buy the cases. It’s worth it.
If you love camp cooking and you want more options for fireside feasts, consider the Pro 60X. It’s a manageable size, and you’ll have the freedom to cook everything that you can at home.
