I just use two Primus Classic Trail burners with a lightweight windscreen when needed. I like the wide burner, and it simmer on low pretty well.

Voyageur Outdoors used them to create their Camp Stove which also serves as a table top.

Second this idea, we have two of the Primus Classic Trail stoves and they are affordable, effective and bullet proof. We find a flat spot and put a double wide griddle on there and have great luck with fish, pancakes, french toast, etc. You would spend very few bucks on a system that works great as two single stoves or a double burner system.

There is also this and I love the concept but reviews are hard to find and there are apparently some negatives. Still, pretty cool...


Definitely two burners , compact and lightweight.

I think I understand the attraction to a two burner stove. However, keep this in mind: if it breaks, you have no stove. But, if you bring two single burners...if one breaks you still have another. Single burners are likely easier to pack, also.

Just my two cents.

That is exactly the reason I stopped making these, The old Peak One Exponents had week cast frames, brittle fuel lines. Too easily broken in the field.

Yup. The Coleman Xpedition 2-burner stove you modified for me is now a mantle piece.
On our men's group trip last August, under a fire ban, we had 4 different burners along. White gas Coleman, MSR Windburner, and a couple of PocketRockets. For our first night's fancy meal, we used all four.

2 pocket Rocket type stoves will be your lightest option for 2 burners. My Vargo folds down to the size of a deck of cards and weigh less

If you are set on a 2 burner by all means get one to try out.
I usually go solo or with one other person and only take an MSR Rapid Fire.
Last year there were 3 total. I decided to bring a Coleman two burner along thinking we would need the extra burners, in addition to the MSR. We weren't going in that far and would be base camping for this trip.
There was only one meal in an 8 day trip that we used both burners on the Coleman. We all agreed that if we did this again that we would just bring 2 single burner stoves next time, the MSR and I also have that Primus Classic Trail stove.
