Default Boiling water at a tailgate

My goal is to have boiling water at a tailgate so I can make hot chocolate and spike it with some peppermint booze.

I'm trying to figure out the easiest way to do this (and the cheapest).

Right now I'm leaning towards the little camp stove in the attached picture.

A tea kettle seems lame and I don't know if a 20 cup coffee percolator would do the job.

Thoughts?

It really doesn't have to be boiling, just hot. A percolator would be fine as long as you have electricity. You can probably find a percolator at a thrift shop or Goodwill pretty cheap.

Get the coleman stove .. you'll find many more uses than just tailgaiting making the $50 original cost easily justified

good point! i never considered that this little burner may not be able to keep up with cold wind.

i do have a turkey fryer but i have yet to buy a propane tank for it. maybe ill just bring my smokey joe and use a tea kettle.

good discussion guys!

anothet option is to just keep drinking cold beer!

^^^^^ what he said. You could boil the water over a chimney starter, but you would still have to store it in something insulated.

As a scout leader/dad, tailgaitor etc I have a lot of experience in this. In fact last weekend I made hot coffee for me and the wife at the jets game spiked with jamisens and bailys

There is good advice here, just as an fyi Coleman does make a single table top burner that runs on the small propane that is far more stable that the camp stove in your picture and less bulky that their dual burners and the turkey fryers (all which are good), but the single tabletop burner is a good inexpensive alternative when space is limited and you need only one heat. This is what I use for tailgating. After making our coffee on Sunday, I put used it to heat up the sauerkraut.


You can pick up peculators in a number of sizes.
