Want the original large camping cook griddle? You go with the mojo. (shame on this skootles company for even trying to fake the funk)
I'm not sure if this writing was meant to be tongue-in-cheek but skottels have been in use for 70+ years - seems like Tembo Tusk is just trying to bring the modern version to the attention of Americans. Does it amaze me that Tembo Tusk can charge $185 for $30 worth of metal? Sure, and I wish I could bring over the 'old school' Cadac version with burner attached from SA for $50 but hey those are just the first world problems you have to deal with. Anyway, I wish you delicious meals with your mojo but I'll keep making breakfast fryups in my skottel.

Want good ribs while camping? You need a dutch oven. (shame on this skittles company for even trying to fake the funk)

Get a life. Then try to come up with your own idea. Super pathetic to read this drivel of a thread (30 + pages, really???) that has nice and pretty food pictures but not an iota of original useful thought.

I'm a huge fan of the Mojo Griddle! We've often camped with Cam the inventor of the Mojo and enjoyed his cooking. Hard to beat that huge slab of plate steel for grilling a steak or almost anything you can think of! The Skottle Grill and the Mojo Griddle satisfy different styles of camping and cooking. You really can't go wrong with either. I know of some who have both! The Mojo and Skottle are built with quality in mind and should last near forever!

Thanks for all the support and even if you don't understand what the big deal is, that is OK. We're not trying to save the world, it's is just camp cooking.

That was humble and respectful, I wish there was a "like" button I could click for this response.

Edit: Quick questions that I'm sure have ben answered 1000 times, but I noticed at the Fuel the Vets event at Toyota of Huntington Beach and you were busy:
- Are the legs interchangeable with the table legs?
- Is there an adapter that one can use to connect a regular propane table to the Tembo Tusk Scottle?

First Thank you!

Yes, the legs are interchangeable with the TemboTusk Camp Tables and the Skottle and yes an adapter can be used to connect the Skottle burner to a larger propane tank. Home Depot, Lowes or any trailer supply house sell the adapters.

Funny! I thought the same thing about the Mojo when I first saw it. Skootle design has been around a long time just maybe not so prevalent in the USA. But I guess you could say the same about the Mojo. Just a flat sheet of steel. Who want's one? Have some steel out in the shop right now and could whip one up.

It's not about what you cook on but what it tastes like when you were done. One side of the fence or the other? Who cares? Let's have some tacos, crack open a cerveza and enjoy. :costumed-smiley-007

I dig my Skottle, obviously :D
I use it every Saturday evening for dinner, and just got done making lunch on it.


Tried out some Hungry Jack freeze dried hash browns for the first time (after seeing a thread about them in the Overland Chef section) and they turned out great.
Used some leftover mushrooms grilled the night before.

Whipped up some Skottle taters this weekend. Bacon grease, onion, and red potatoes diced to 1/2" cubes. Simple and tasty.

We use the Barilla brand No Boil pasta . Taste great, cannot tell the differance between the regular pasta the the no boil pasta. There is nothing like pasta comfort food while on the trail!!!
Agreed. I made a full box of the Barilla Penne at the Mountain Rendezvous which easily served four adults + our 8yo, with a little left-over. Very easy, convenient, and water-thrifty. Aside from extending the cook time slightly (and thus adding a bit more water) due to altitude, the directions were dead-perfect.

EDIT: A more appropriate name would be "No Drain" pasta, since obviously you're boiling water, you're just not dumping any out.
