Jetboil on tailgate

We've been using one on these for years on the lower tailgate of our D3/4:
https://www.blacks.co.uk/16233482/campinga...e-16233482

But unfortunately it appears to throw out as much heat downwards as upwards, so to protect the tailgate carpet and Synthetic Canvas load liner I carry a square of Aluminium Honeycomb material with me to put it on.

I know a few on here use a Jetboil, so the question is, do/would you use it on the tailgate without worrying about damaging underneath it?

Thanks

Absolutely no problems using a JB straight on the tailgate. Thumbs Up

As here, the gas can is between the JB and the floor, no heat gets through.

Just remember JBs work best in pairs, they get lonely on their own. Whistle Whistle

That’s the way to cook up a pouch of rice, can of curry, bung in a bowl & just add mango chutters and a Nan bread. Plus gives you hot water for a coffee and more to do the washing up. Minimum work, maximum results. Thumbs Up

Got one of those little canister stands that JB do and its nice and stable. NEver thought about the heat going south Shocked Anyway, never a bother.

I did come across a pic of someone who'd replaced the carpet with aluminium, so gave a nice clean prep surface ..... could be your next project Whistle

Jetboil at a good price on SportPursuit at the moment...£69.99 for a Flash matrix JB.

Also...a JB lookalike at Alpkit for even less money. I use one of these myself. V good.

Thanks Davethegeo, I've been unable to use the SportPersuit website as it requires you to join and I never get the confirmation emails to confirm my email address, not even in my Spam folder.
I've tried using my work email address with the same result.

Lady Nasher and I actually decided the Minimo was our best bet as it's not only more suited to warming Soup or Noodles up, but if one of us is out on our own we can eat out of it.
I'm hoping to get back to my earlier years and do some stripped back camping on my own in the next couple of years and it will also work for that.
I'm even considering selling a couple of my current motorcycles so I can buy something suitable to do more distance on and camp from it.

When we've had a play we might buy a Flash or Zip to compliment it.

Best deal I found on the Minimo was £153 at Millets:

I don't do my boiling or cooking on the tailgate [just the prep], for fear of accidental spillage and resultant damage.

I use the Jetboil on the ground [with one of these little stands Tanters mentioned], also with a pegged-in Alu windbreak surround.

For more serious stuff, [especially with my twin burner] I use my foldable Alu work platform for cooking/eating/dishwashing etc and also for accessing the roof rack.

Hotdogs and onions on the go while out on the lanes, also put a pan on top a cook a mighty fine steak!
Mines not a jetboil but from Alpkit, hall the price of a JB and does exactly the same job.

I have bought a couple of these JetBoil clones. https://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/CPPX750POCS/...ing-system

They are fantastic value for money and from my use and experience just as good.

Get a bargain while you can..
 Its not the height of the fall but the sudden stop at the bottom that hurts!!

Interesting - for the time being, Makita has only announced availability for its new cordless microwave in Japan, where it will sell for ¥71,500, or around US $540 / £435.

Not quite minimalism, but cooked up breakfast on the tailgate on Sunday while manning a rest stop for the Birmingham walkathon Smile
