Default Grills/Stoves/Dutch Ovens

I know this is also sort of being discussed in the food thread but I'm easily confused and I can't tell who is bringing what or if everyone will assume everyone else is bringing theirs and we will end up with nothing

So, who is definitely bringing a grill/stove/dutch oven and how many do we need to bring for the group to insure timely meals

I'll start by saying I have these and can bring either or both assuming my pilot can find room for them in the truck

Can anyone guess the age of the Coleman...I've include a picture for a hint and I'll also tell you it was made in Wichita KS

Wow looks like one I had in the early 80's that I got from my father in law ... so mid 70's?? after reading Dave's post I looked at the box pic again and the $1.20 for Unleaded must make it more like the mid 80's ( I don't think mine was dual fuel)

I have not gotten into the Dutch oven thing around here because the fire restrictions can be tough and hauling charcoal is a pain.
I do have almost every gas powered goody that Coleman makes. Any or all of the following might make sense for this trip:
Propane griddle
Propane grill
Propane stove w/small baking oven

I'll be dragging the camper back home this weekend and can raid it for anything that might be useful

Often charcoal fires are OK, depends on the restrictions. The fire bans always cut out open fires, but the first level of restriction often still allows enclosed fires. I have a pan that I cook in and that seems to make the rangers happy to call it the same as a charcoal grill.

Neat old 414. It's got a square manifold, so it's probably from the 1970s some time. I have a 426B (my 3-burner) and it's got the square manifold, which is from the late 1960s. My really old 425B has a square manifold and that's from about 1958, but it's the earlier pale green. I don't know much about the dual fuel stoves, so I'd guess that is an early 1980s stove? It looks like the 425 2-burner I got in about 1992 or so. I mean, we know it's not much old than the 1970s, I mean who would care or know about unleaded fuel back in the 1950s and 1960s? ;-)

BTW, Coleman still sells parts for most of their old stoves. At least the common stoves (for example the 425, 426, 413, 414, 442) built in the last 50 year or so can be refurbished with most of the original parts. I've been told that if you send your old stove to Coleman, as long as the tank isn't rusted, it will come back looking good as new.

Well, just to finish the "test", I'm not 100% sure but I believe I picked this up in the late 80's (say between 1986 and 1988). That would be about right for the avg price of unleaded fuel back then before it dropped in the late 80s. Amazing that 20 years later it is working great with nothing more than regular cleanings. I don't think I've fired the thing up in over 10+ years but it worked great for the cookout before the Rapids game last Sunday

I will also bring my two burner stove and mini smokey Joe. More of a habbit at this point seems like there are a lot of stoves but sometimes they can be fickle.
