Camp Chef Expedition 3x 3 Burner Stove Review

The Camp Chef Expedition 3x 3 Burner Stove is Camp Chef’s biggest, most powerful stand alone camping stove. It comes equipped with 3 x 30,000 BTU burners, which means each burner produces around three times the heat of the burners you’ll find on kitchen stoves in the home.

These facts alone give you a good impression of what this stand alone stove is capable of – cooking anything you can cook at home while being outdoors. Add to this the ease of setting the stove up, how quick it fires up, and the easy to use controls. Giving you a fun, easy cooking experience wherever you are.Camp Chef Expedition Stove

The Expedition 3×3 Burner Stove comes with a professional flat top griddle, three-sided windscreen, utensil and paper towel holders, regulator and 3ft hose, and removable/adjustable legs.

With all of these features and by just shear size, you might consider this in the Glamping category.  Although it would fit a glamping trip it also would be great on any trip where extra size is important.  It is quick and easy to set up, the griddle is easy to clean and the grease drain helps collect excess grease for disposal.

Setup and Design Features

There is very little to assemble with the Camp Chef Expedition, when you first unpack it you’ll have it up and ready in a few minutes. This is what people have come to expect from stand alone stoves, and the Expedition is very straight forward even if you have never used a outdoor stove before.  If you are new to camping and need a little primer on how to have a good trip check out this article.

It is surprising how much more you can do with the three burners as opposed to two like a lot of other models, such as the Camp Chef Explorer reviewed here.  Cooking an additional food type, or stir-frying while boiling some water and cooking is a lifesaver with larger groups of people.

The easy to use knobs make controlling a simmer easy, or balancing the heat of different foods just as easy. With a three-sided windscreen you can protect the flame while cooking outside, and with the utensil and paper towel holders you can keep the cooking area clear of clutter.  Prices for the Camp Chef Expedition range from $260 to $400.

Dimensions – The Camp Chef Expedition has a 24” x 18” griddle, with an overall cooking area of 608” Sq. The cooking height is 31” and there is some room for adjustment with the legs.
