One of the perks of my job is testing new gear. A Genesis Base Camp Cooking System recently arrived. I immediately set it up on the tailgate of my F-150 for a brief test run.IMG_2413

The Genesis stove is a two-burner system. High tech, high heat output and simple to use. Boiling water on the tailgate is hardly a thorough field test. That will come later. I simply heated water and made a cup of tea to see how the stove worked, which was very well. The quality of construction is evident. The base camp system includes a 10-inch frying pan and 5-liter pot and wind shield, all of which nest together in a handy, easy-to-handle soft carrying case. The Genesis stove can be purchased without the pots. A HalfGen (one burner) model is also available.

More later. But until then check it out at www.jetboil.com. Jetboil is part of the Johnson Outdoors www.johnsonoutdoors.com family of products.

And my thanks to Sam Petri at www.dennyink.com for helping with this project.
