If you are a foodie that likes to camp and be outside, I have the perfect outdoor cooking system for you. It’s the Camp Chef Pro 60X and it can do just about anything. I’ve been using it for about three weeks and I’m in LOVE with this stove and wondering how I’ve done without it this long. You don’t just get a camp stove. It’s an entire system where you can mix and match different components to have various food options, like the Pizza Oven and BBQ Box. You really need both to optimize your stove because part of what makes is so exciting is all the different food genres you can make.

Last night we had Crab Cakes and since it was super hot, cooking outside spared the house of extra heat. The food tasted better because everything does when it’s cooked outdoors. Crab cakes are kind of messy too, they splatter a bit, and it was nice not to have that mess in the house. I served them with Cole slaw and they were amazing. There was some wind while I was making these, and it was no problem for the stove by the way. It comes with a wind screen, but I think the burners are so powerful that they can withstand a little wind.
There’s never been a better time to grab one of these. With all the restrictions from COVID, you can make your own fantastic meals, social distance with friends outside, enjoy food adventures and save money. All of the fun with none of the hassle. You get restaurant quality food, only better because you know what’s in it. I prefer organic whenever possible for instance. I can make organic pizzas at home that taste every bit as good as what I’d get in any of my local pizzerias.
Camp Chef Pizza Oven
The pizza oven is simply an accessory that you add to the stove. There is a one burner pizza oven and a two burner pizza oven. I’ve been using the two-burner, it covers the entire stove and makes it look like a big pizza oven. The great thing about the larger oven is that you can make two pizzas at once, so if you’re making pizza with multiple people, it goes very fast. It only takes a couple of minutes to cook the pizza because temps get so high. And they come out just like brick oven pizzas you’d get in the restaurant.
You can’t believe the quality of the food. I’m so stoked and empowered to have this ability! The stove comes collapsed with nothing to do but unfold the legs. Then hook it up to a propane tank and voila! You are ready to go. This stove is heavy duty. The burners are powerful and put out more heat than a standard stove. My in-house stove is electric, so it’s especially nice to cook on gas, which I think is far superior and more easily controlled.
Camp Chef BBQ Box
The BBQ Box has a cast iron grill and gives you the option to grill. Elote was our first effort (and we ate it so fast it was too late for pictures!), grilled mushrooms and other various veggies. They were excellent. We weren’t expecting the food to turn out so well since we are used to using a charcoal grill, but it was every bit as good with way less of a mess.
When you’re done, you just clean up the grill the same way you would your other cast iron. I season mine each time because I baby my stuff, close up the box and you are ready to go next time. The handle makes it easy to carry, and there are also carry cases for everything in this system.
Camp Chef Pro 60X Bottom Line
If you are anywhere near as obsessed with good food as I am, this is your camp stove. Take it car camping, to the park, beach, or just use it in your backyard. It’s also the ultimate emergency preparedness stove for when you lose power after a hurricane or any number of disasters. Check out my full list of Camping Gear that Doubles as Emergency Gear HERE. It’s not a bad time to make sure you are prepared. I recommend having a couple of propane tanks on hand so that if you run out of one in the middle of cooking, you have immediate backup. This is one of my all time favorite things I’ve ever reviewed, I can’t recommend it highly enough.
