The Tembo Tusk Skottle seems to be popular at the Overland Expo recently and I wonder if anyone else is using these. I just bought a Southwest Disk 18" Madrid Discada, in preparation for a two week trip around Wyoming in about 2 weeks. I'm using a JetBoil Half Genesis single burner as my heat source and took it out on the deck for a test run. Worked well. Basically a flatter version of a wok. The Tembo and the Southwest also come with a burner but mine works well with the Half Genesis. So far. I got a propane hose to move my bottle away from the discada.

I have a Skottle and like it a lot but it gets a bit hot in the middle and takes getting used to for an experienced cook like my wife. The Coleman single burner doesn't adjust very low.

I made my own and like cooking on it but don't use it when I'm camping alone. Ron

Munchmeister,
I have a Skottle and agree with Stalking Light. It does take a little practice to figure out how to best cook with it as it does get quite hot directly above the heat source. Of course, I have mad skills... I can burn almost anything while cooking.

I removed the adjustment screws on my Skottle and set the burner low on the steel holder. That helps a lot for me. Stitch I bet I burn better than you ;)

We swapped the Coleman for a Walmart ozark trail burner and it can be adjusted to lower heat. Still experimenting.

I read on Ex Po Forum that some folks were trying that and getting good results. I'll have to give it try next time.

I'm actively trying to lose the "Dinner Burning" competition, XJINTX, lol.

I'd be interested to hear how that works out, Stalking Light. Even with the wind screen, that Coleman will blow out at the lowest setting.

My wife says it’s much better although it is slightly smaller and we need to figure out how to center it so the skottle doesn’t get hotter slightly off center.
