The Adventure Skottle is a mini version of the now-famous TemboTusk Skottle. It was designed with adventure cyclists in mind but it's also ideal for overnight canoe and kayak trips or even car camping when storage space it tight.
If you're unfamiliar with the skottle, think of a heavy-duty wok and you've got the basic idea. The Skottle is fabricated in the USA and comes pre-seasoned so it can be used immediately.
Here's what you need to know:
- You can cook pretty much anything on a Skottle that you can cook on a traditional grill but you can also whip up scrambles, fried rice, and noodle dishes. In other words, the skottle pretty much does it all.
- The Adventure Skottle is perfect for one or two people to cook on. More than two and the larger original TemboTusk Skottle is better.
- TemboTusk pre-seasons each Skottle before shipping them, which means that they arrive ready to cook on.
- The Adventure Skottle pan, legs, and carry bag are all made in the USA.
A note from the Get Lost team:
I love the Skottle. I bought the larger version in 2016 (after seeing it at Overland Expo) and since then it's cooked up delicious meals from Alaska to Maine and plenty of places in between. I don't own an Adventure Skottle (the larger Skottle fits my needs better) but I do know this. It was designed around the MSR DragonFly multi-fuel stove, which is a great stove, but unless you're traveling to countries where canister gas might be tricky to find, I'd suggest using the MSR Superfly or the GSI Glacier stove. I've been using MSR stoves for nearly 30 years. The first one I bought still works like it's brand new. Bomb-proof and trustworthy. I lean toward the MSR stove because it checks three boxes that I find important: 1.) It works on the Adventure Skottle but it's also a killer backpacking stove; 2.) It's made in Seattle, which is cool; and 3.) I'm familiar with the MSR brand and I trust it. Still, the GSI Glacier stove is a far easier stove to use, which is definitely worth considering. Simplicity is important too. Hope that helps.
Choose the setup that works best for you:
We sell two different setups for the Adventure Skottle, so make sure you choose the one that fits your needs. This set comes without a stove. It includes the grill, the legs, and a BlueRidge Overland cary bag. *Carry bags will ship after July 15th.
Why buy a skottle without a stove? The most popular alternate stove set up is the multi-fuel MSR Dragonfly stove. The Dragonfly attaches directly to the Skottle (no adapter needed), which makes it an attractive option. The Dragonfly is a proven workhorse, popular in the adventure bike and hiking crowd. Alternatively, with adapters sold through TemboTusk you can use three additional stoves: The MSR Whisperlite International, the Jetboil MightyMo, or the MSR-SuperFly Stove. If you're looking for an inexpensive option, a Coleman single burner stove also works. This stove might not be as well built as the stoves mentioned above, but Coleman stoves have been a camping go-to for decades and you can buy them everywhere. It's your call.
