            Bucky's sells those and other at their stations. The Bucky's near us have 120 pumps, world's longest automatic car wash and great food. You should stop and look around on your way out to Columbus.

              last year we tried to stop at a Bucky's and literally couldn't find a place to park our rig .... there is no doubt that they are running a good business

                We still have it... but rarely use it. Not because it isn't good at its purpose...
                When we're cooking w/ the dutch over... we're usually using the tripod and putting over coals from the firepit.

                The table is VERY well made and VERY heavy. We keep it in the 5er's basement... but truth be told, we haven't taken it out in 3-4 years.

                Even when we're with my brother (when that picture was taken), it's rare that we cook w/ two dutch ovens at the same time.

                  info appreciated .... how does the finish hold up to exposure to hot coals ? .... is it prone to rusting ?.... we don't have but one Dutch Oven, might get another one sometime down the road .... what I am interested is in having a cooking surface a the right height .... I'm getting tired of cooking on the ground .... if it will work, I'd use it for our Holland Companion and propane stove as well

                    Holds up extremely well. We just spray ours off with a hose whenever we've used it. It is ridiculously heavy though.

                    To your use case of cooking at the right height... the cons of this table outweigh the pros. The real benefit of this table to withstand direct heat and provide a wind shelter.

                    For a Holland and/or the propane stove... I would HIGHLY suggest a collapsible aluminum table like this one.
                    I have one of these and use it regularly for our Holland. Heat hasn't been an issue, clean up is a breeze, light as a feather, and the adjustable foot ensures a level placement. We use this table on every trip without fail... and we haven't had a part failure on it for the eight years we've owned it.

                    I think I could even adapt the table to use a dutch oven on it. All one would have to do is make a raised base for the coals and the oven to sit on... while allowing airflow under the bottom coals.

                    For two dutch ovens... the Lodge table is perfect. For cooking in windy conditions... it is perfect.
                    For the use case you've described as your primary reason for looking... there are better products.

                      valuable info, thanks for commenting .... we have used an aluminum table similar to one in the link and for the last few years we have used a fiberglass one .... both do OK with the Holland and stove but neither can handle a Dutch Oven ..... I'm not interested in packing 2 tables .... just checked and Amazon list the weight as 33.9 lbs .... the most certainly is a consideration
