Jetboil Joule Group Cooking System


Product Details

Jetboil's new Joule Group Cooking System is the company's largest backpacking stove to date, and its inverted canister design with a fuel regulator provides consistent heat in sub-freezing temperatures. Equipped with a voluminous 2. 5-liter cooking vessel and powered by a 10,000 BTU burner, it'll boil soup or water for you and two to four of your friends or family members in less than three minutes (2 minutes and 40 seconds to be exact) when you're spending the night high up on a snowy mountain. The boiling time is almost half of Jetboil's other group cooking system unit (the Sumo), and the burner can be adjusted to simmer liquids as well bring them to a boil. The stove's smart design essentially turns the cooking vessel and burner into one integrated unit; Jetboil's patented FluxRing unites the two pieces, provides a built-in wind barrier, and efficiently draws hot air from the burner to the cooking vessel to enable its very rapid boiling rate. This integrated design, along with a beefier burner unit, also provides excellent stability. The burner and fuel canister pack into the cooking vessel, and the locking handle on the cooking vessel folds down for a compact transporting size. Considering the stove's ability to feed up to five people, its 6. 5x8-inch pack size is relatively compact. Once you've reached your stopping point for the day, stove set-up is a breeze, and doesn't require the special priming steps of much fussier liquid/multi-fuel systems. With one quick push of the Piezo igniter button, light the Joule, and get to work on your gourmet stew amidst stunning natural scenery that would put any four-star restaurant to shame.

Price : $ 199.95

Camping Stoves Checklist

What Type of Stove? For general campground use, get a campground/propane stove. They are far easier to cook with, and have more options, than a backpacking stove.
Fuel Type? A dual fuel stove is always handy, especially for a backpacking stove. However, for general camping use with a campground/propane stove, it's still hard to beat propane. You can buy propane canisters nearly anywhere.
For Backpacking... My preference are liquid fuel stoves. They are more versatile and fuel costs are lower. Still, there are some advantages to canister stoves...especially if you don't mind the higher fuel cost that goes with them.
Don't Invite the Bears to Dinner! When in Montana or Yellowstone Park, the number #1 way to invite a bear to dinner is to leave your stove (and pots/pans) lying around right after cooking. So...don't be lazy. Clean-up once you're done cooking and put your stove in your vehicle.
