It also isn't my backpacking set up.

It is so I can have coffee during a cyclone.

I mean I could kick it around a bit if it make people happier.
One good cookout and that bright yellow paint is looking scuffed or smoke/heat tinged.

So nice tap dance there. It's a hanger queen and you didn't actually deny it.
Sorry I actually deny it. I have been using it for about 5 years.

It is gas. The heat goes in to the pot. What smoke heat tinge are you on about?

What gas cooker has paint that stripps off?

You are making stuff up again.

Did I say the paint strips off? Now you are grasping for the ledge as the bottom falls out.

I said scuffed, smoked tinged, and color heat distortion. There is a very good reason grill paints are typically dark or black. Bright yellow takes almost nothing to end up looking used and dirty.

It's a closet queen like its owner.

I am very surprised at the number of people here who must have electric stoves in their kitchens. Gas stoves are much better to cook on and that is why every commercial operation uses gas stoves. And obviously gas cooktops work in times of no power. Plus because the cooktops work, you still have a heat source in the winter that does not need electricity.

totally agree! it was one of the first changes I made when I started prepping, they are much better to cook as as well as you can precisely control heat. and its so much easier during a power outage than having to bust out alternative cooking.

Not all gas cook tops work without power. There are modern ones that wont allow the gas to turn on if there isn't electric, you can't even light them manually. Anyone who had a gas stove should make sure it will work when the power is out. Also in my area it is quite common after a tornado goes though there ends up being natural gas leaks and the only way to safely get rescue workers in is to shut off gas to the entire area. Sometimes the gas is only off for a couple hours but I have also seen it shut off for 5-6 days when a tornado went through a trailer park and there were dozens of damaged lines.

I always felt the same way about gas heating and cooking. I was reminded that not everyone lives in an area served by gas lines. Something I hadn't considered, since I had never experienced that myself. Yep, I live and learn too.

Most cook tops will work just fine. You can't use the electric starter but the gas will flow, so all you need is a match.
Many modern gas ovens will not work without power, however. Some kind of safety feature to prevent explosions. Of course,, the new digital temp readout wouldn't work without power.
But we can run ours with a small generator. I think even my little 700watt Harbor Freight one will do it since its a tiny draw. I haven't tried with that one but I have tested it with one of my 2000watt inverter Ryobi's and it was fine. Very little gas use for baking bread, cake, cookies, roasts and stuff.
We switched from an electric range to propane several years ago as a prep. No natural gas lines out here but the big tank of propane lasts a loooong time with just the range on it. We much prefer cooking on gas as opposed to electric.
As a bonus, my wife learned to cook most everything she wanted to on our winter heat source, the woodstove. Before making the switch to propane our electric range was on its last legs and was hit or miss as to whether the oven would decide to work. Wife switched to cooking on the woodstove and one of our butane stoves. She became very adept at it and cooked most everything she wanted to. Even a birthday cake in kind of a Dutch oven rigged up on the woodstove.

We have always had propane at our houses. As long as you keep the tank full you always have the gas for cooking and heating. This house and our last house I bought an additional tank so we could have a steady two-year supply on hand.

I honestly don't know what you are saying.

So you have invented this idea that paint discolours or whatever. You have made up this notion that this will happen to my particular brand of cooker. And made up that yellow paint will show discolouration too easily.

You have then come to the conclusion that because that cooker has not met your desired level of damage or age that it hasn't been used.

The whole thing sounds more made up than your military career.

But if it is any consolation. It is powder coat not paint apparently.

This is a common setup for houses in country Australia (although I think this pic comes from New Zealand). Most houses in cities are connected to a gas line.

It is a two way switch at the top.
When one tank runs out you manually switch over to the other. As some have said, a 100lb tank lasts for a long time if only used for cooking. Gives you plenty of time to get the empty one refilled.

That is how travel trailers (caravans to you) are set up over here.

LMAO! As if BBQ spray paint doesn't exist or why it exists. I've forgotten more about metal coatings than you could ever fathom.

Just more of your make believe. Like your early times here talking about your self defense skills that ended up with you glorifying a milk crate for personal defense, or later when you tried to weigh in on military tactics because you've seen a military base in your area and had a couple beers with troops.

You are survivalist poser and fraud. You would have bailed ages ago from here, but you found you can also spew your statist socialist idolatry as well. At this point no BS is off limits for you. You wouldn't last a day in your Outback without a car to escape it.
