Simple propane stove wanted

Can anyone recommend a simple [edit: and compact/light] two, or even one single, burner propane stove [to run off bulk propane and not having a built-in regulator? We have no need for a large muti-burner stove. I don't want a large footprint and besides, if I'm needing 3-4 burners, would need to find some camping chef friends to do all that cooking.
I can convert a Coleman-class twin burner camping stoves to run on a 20# cylinder, probably the cheapest option, but I'm still open to other stove options if I can find any. A single burner, side-by-side, or front-to-back burner will suffice. Would be nice if it was self standing, so I can move it outside the van's galley with an extension hose.


TIA,



-Barry

Camp Chef. Has much better flame control than Coleman.

I was also looking for something simple and smaller footprint than the generic Coleman stove. I already have the adapter for the 16oz to 5 lb bottles so I was looking at this one from gas one. I would be interested if anyone has comments or other recommendations.

The Coleman flame control is ridiculous, a full turn of motion on the nob but all the adjustments between off and 100% on are contained in about 10 degrees of motion.

I originally used a Coleman "Fold-and-Go" two burner propane stove. Burners were 10,000 btu. Nice small stove but would not boil water in windy conditions.

Wanted a portable stove so I can cook inside the van, outside on a drop down shelf off sink cabinet or on a picnic table. Do not want to cook inside the van if I can avoid it.

Replaced the Coleman with a Camp Chef Ranger II that has 17,000 btu burners. No problem in the wind. Also bought a cast iron grill that is smooth on one side for breakfast and ribbed on the other side for barbequing. Eliminates the need to carry a separate barbecue. $94.99 on Amazon.

Reversible grill: https://www.campchef.com/stove-acces...riddle-24.html

Not the griddle I bought but same idea but mine is smaller.

Disadvantage is the stove is rather large so I had to provide a place to store it.

Very happy with the Ranger II.

I use an older version of this one. $25 at Walmart. Works good!

I like the looks of the Ranger II but the lack of wind shield is a problem. Although with 17,000 BTU per burner, maybe not?

Would be nice if this stove [make/model?] was self-contained, but I like the relatively small footprint...

I love my Camp Chef oven for Pizza, It was a better deal 3 years ago when it was selling for $200 dollars.

Another vote for Camp Chef. I have the 2 burner Pro, will be replacing it with the single burner version for the conversion. Will have to heat up the sauce and then cook the noodles (or vice versa), but with the 14"x16" griddle, can put breakfast together pretty quick.
