    Stainless steel pot and fire for meals. Same pot and a pocket stove for coffee and breakfast. I've been wanting to try out one of those folding twig stoves but i can't find one for a reasonable price.

      >Stainless Steel
      Based. I use the $25 GSI Stainless 1-Person Mess Kit and the $30 GSI backpacking stove. It comes with a 1 liter pot and a 6" frying pan that doubles as a lid and the stove has a large burner for more even heating. Aluminum is inferior and titanium is only good for boiling water. Stove is 5.9 oz and the mess kit without the included plate and bowl is a little under a pound so not for gram weenies. I ordered the Fire Maple FM-116T stove, we'll see how it works. It looks like the burner is almost as big but it's only 1.8oz.

      I just got one of those twig hangers for $15 bucks. I haven't used it yet. I'm looking for a replacement for a collapsible grill. The plate is decently thick steel, 10ga I think. The chain is good too, probably more than I need for my 900mL pot but I'll decide later on that.

        I bought a Primus Essential trail stove for $35 CAD at the start of the summer and it hasn't let me down after a few camping trips. You don't want to go too cheap because I've heard the cheaper ones tend to fall apart or not work in wind etc.

        >Something like this?
        No, something much smaller just for boiling water, like pic related. I haven't pulled the trigger yet though. There's so many different types at different price ranges I can't make up my mind.

            All the dakota pits I've dug have worked quite effectively, although that wasn't in the pissing rain. Plus the hobo stove would probably be smaller than your fire-pit and might need a similar workload to process fuel and fit it inside.

      If its vacuum sealed there is no air inside that can expand but it also insulates the contents so its not efficient to cook anything in it because heat will not transfer. Just pulled this information out of my ass so you propably should not trust me.

        better get at it, they like to run out and then you have to wait for the next shipment. I have liked using open firepit setup with the baseplate as a top to control how much fire/heat as well.

        For canister stoves I just use a small Snowpeak one. Works pretty well. I generally just boil water in it and cook/reconstitute in a sealable tupperware with a reflectix wrap. The plastic is light, I can use the cup to drink if needed, and I don't have to scrape stuff off the pot. The plastic seems to clean up a lot easier. Plus it seals up and I can use it to cold soak breakfast. I do have to make a windscreen, a good breeze makes it a real bitch sometimes. I want to make something that I can hang off the pot handle so that it covers the stove without getting near the canister itself. I feel like it's a lot of material to have something tall enough to cover all the way to the pot from the outside.

        [...]
        I have zero use case for a wood stove like this but it always looks so comfy.

        I also have an old Coleman white gas stove that I bring for shorter hikes where I expect to do a lot more cooking or for winter. It's heavy but cooks fast which is good when I want to say, boil a liter of water to make hot water bottles.

        Just needed something lightweight for my hot tent kit. Before this my I had used propane cooking stuff but I now prefer having limitless free fuel everywhere I go.

          total opposite experience with twig stoves, if you live somewhere like washington or oregon there's only a few months out of the year most years where you'll find dry enough twigs.
          bigger wood stoves yeah sure you can find standing dead to process, usually ain't worth the time out here though.
          really situational to season and where you live imo. jealous of anons who live places they're usable, seems comfy.

            You’re not wrong, but the PNW has an extremely predictable yearly rain cycle. A graph like this anywhere east of the Rockies is basically a straight line.

            This ties back to the California Influence, where the rain cycle is the same as Olympic NP. “If it’s raining that means it’s also cold, so a jacket is the answer.” Meanwhile in real America it can be raining and hot at the same time.

        I'd want to get in to the hot tent game. I love the feeling of falling asleep in a tent while listening the fire burn in the stove. Gives me memories about my conscription and boy scout days. The same thing as when I have a hurricane lantern on, the smell brings good memories.

        Enjoy scrubbing cemented rice out of your 1/16" tin teacup.

        Washing the dishes has never been an issue to me. Don't you do dishes at home either?

        have you ever boiled anything in a jet boil other than water?

        water never tastes the same.

        and i do love spaghetti pour over

        That's why you have one pot for cooking the food in and an another cup that stacks around your bottle that you boil the water in. Or that's what I do and it works well. I have a titan 750ml cup that stacks with my nalgene copy and fits in to a canteen pouch that I carry on my belt/hip belt of my ruck sack. In addition to that, I have a 1L pot with a gas stove and wind shield etc, I cook my foods in that 1L pot and I eat straight out of the said pot as well. Then I just take the pot off the heat and start boiling the water for my drinks. No weird taste in my tea. And since the extra cup is titanium, the extra weight from it is negligible. Literally the weight of 2-3 chocolate bars. There is also no extra bulk because as I said, the cup sits in the canteen pouch with the bottle.

        I keep seeing people on PrepHole dickwaving about stoves they paid shitloads of money for.
        I bought an unbranded $14 stove off amazon in 2015 and it's never failed me. It came in a little orange case. What the hell are you all getting out of your stoves you pay $40 to $100 dollars for?

        I chose a pocket rocket 2 because it was the smallest and I wanted the stove to fit inside my pot with the fuel canister and lighter. The cheapo stoves were all too bulky for that purpose. When I bought mine, I paid about 35€ for the pocket rocket meanwhile the cheapo stoves cost about 20-25€ from local stores. Ordering from china wasn't an option either because it would have taken months and I needed the stove faster.

    Currently preparing for motorcycle camping and a cooking system is last on my list to check off. My dad has one of these pump style liquid fuel stoves and I like the idea of fuel being widely available, or being able to make an alcohol stove out of a can or something if it malfunctions.
    The guys I plan on camping with primarily cook over a campfire, but like to have something as a backup.
    Worth it? Before I saw this I was considering the MSR pocket rocket kit or a Trangia.

      Its really drive more by what you want to cook. If cooking over a fire, can that same food really be done by the stove. If the answer is yes it makes sense, you can store quite a bit of fuel inside the stove itself. Takes a minute to get going but typically very strong. The canister suggestion here

      is definitely the lighter, more self contained option but you won't really be cooking a weeks worth of meals for multiple people, but would be fine if you just wanted to rehydrate some stuff and keep a couple of mountain houses or pasta sides. Otherwise it's just not efficient. Gotta match the tool for the job.

          Yes, motorbike camping with a group of people who intend to cook over the campfire. It implies that he may end up being the back up if he's the only one with a second cooking option. Or he can tell the others to stuff it and prepare options for himself or use it solo. And still the type of food has to be considered, a canister stove would be a poor replacement for stuff you wanted to put in a foil packet for example. That's why need drives solution.

            And what's your suggested solution? Obviously they will have larger pots/pans if cooking over a fire that can be used on canister stove as I've done in the past, so let's here your solution then

            • 1 month ago
              Anonymous

              Honestly out of the two the Coleman. You can crank the power up a bit more, have a ton of available fuel. You definitely couldn't have like a dutch oven on there but a 10-12in pan would still work even if you did get stuck cooking multiple times for a group that didn't have another option. And since they are on the motorcycle I don't think the 2lbs or so of stove and fuel is too big of a penalty for a self contained back up system. Like I said before it also comes down to what they are cooking, anything slow cook wise on a stove kinda sucks while easy in the coals. As long as they can throw it in a small pot or pan though it should be fine. I am a believer in having the back up fill the role of the primary system as much as possible. I personally don't like extended cooking on canister stove and especially not for multiple people, so to me that option only makes sense for personal use and in this context alongside a simpler backup meal option as well.

              I apologize if it's coming off more argumentative here. The core of what I am trying to say is that many people ask for "the best gear" and forget to evaluate the entirety of the problem at hand. Without knowing if the poster means to be responsible for his camping buddies or what they intend to cook over the fire it's hard to actually say "X stove completely replaces that."

                Yes, but that was years ago. It just so happens that I posted it in PrepHole during some dumb argument or rant last week, so it's fun to see it reposted.

                Anyway, all non-staff motor vehicles (including public shuttles) should be banned from parking within a one-mile radius of the park's current borders. Through traffic can continue on through and away somewhere the fuck else.

                All human amenities not specifically intended to preserve the biosphere (trash cans qualify, for example) should be removed from Zion.

                Normies don't deserve to be motored as close to Zion's sacred spaces as possible clutching their McD's and clothed head to toe in Patagonia they only use as tourist regalia. If you want to go to Zion, then you have to make a pilgrimage.

                That defintiely looks like a good stove, far more portable.

                I think the stove you get for hot tenting needs to seal fairly well to prevent carbon monoxide from building up. Mine defintely doesn't do that.

        If it’s not 15°F outside there’s no point in using a Whisperlite instead of any old isobutane or alcohol stove.

            Isobutane canisters stop working in very cold conditions. It has something to do with the fuel not being able to vaporize; they simply don’t work in really low temps (like Midwest winter or mountain peak when it’s butt ass cold). The Whisperlite is intended specifically for that use, which a pretty hardcore circumstance. They’re pretty heavy and bulky, so bringing one one a regular trip where it’s not extremely cold is just a burden.

                And to add to that, regarding lighters.
                Butane is typical lighter fluid. For a lighter in normal applications it's acceptable. They're not marketed as survival tools and if you have one on you, you'll keep it on your body somewhere it's warm and it can function anyway. It only needs to light briefly after it's been in contact with your skin and then it goes back in the pocket.
                Isobutane might be premium for lighters but standard for a gas stove. You can't keep a gas can under your armpit while you're cooking. It stores in ambient temperature to begin with and ends up at ambient temperature quickly anyway as soon as you use it. Those gas cans actually cool down below ambient as you use them because of evaporation.
                Butane is completely unacceptable for cooking outdoors, you could lose most usable pressure from a butane can on a particularly cold morning in summer. If someone tries to sell you a butane canister in the usual backpacking form factor, tell them to eat a cock.
                Straight propane (unlikely), propane and isobutane backpacking mixtures, gas marked "LPG" or other mixes that contain propane in reasonable amounts are what are used in cold weather. Putting propane in a lighter is insane and overkill though. If someone tries to sell you "4 season gas" and it only says isobutane on it, tell them to eat a cock.

              Isobutane (and to a greater extent butane) falters in freezing conditions. The fuel in gas canisters is liquefied under pressure and at ambient temperature, if you release that pressure it boils and releases the vapour for use, at most, at the fuel's vapour pressure for that temperature. At minus 11 celsius that pressure is sea level ambient for isobutane, if you crack open (don't) the canister in -11 weather there will be a liquid sloshing inside like water as opposed to it bursting in your face as soon as you make a hole.
              Gas stoves without a means of vapourizing the fuel only "work" down to the boiling point of the fuel (and barely work at all near it). Propane boils at lower temperatures. 4 season gas mixes contain propane, that's you what you want or a stove with a heat exchanger and hose to feed the fuel as a liquid.

    I've got a huge cast iron dutch oven. It's practically a cauldron. Only take it canoeing because it weighs more than Belgium. Just got some little beryllium copper pans and a vango stove that runs off blowtorch gas because camping propane is ludicrously expensive here.

      BRS 3000T, it's small and light enough to have a second as a backup. Have to shield it from the wind if it gets too windy. It's not as fast as fancier burners but I'll take an extra couple of minutes to boil over the bulk and cost of nicer stove.
      750ml Titanium pot. It's a lot easier to cook in than the smaller 500ml sizes, definitely worth the extra bulk. It has a nice cauldron handle so it's easy hang over fires. Titanium doubles the price, but it will likely out live you so an extra 17 bucks isn't too bad.
      Foldable spork, not the most elegant utensil but it is very convenient to cram everything eating related in one place.
      Whatever fuel can I bought on sale. I store it in a ziploc bag because the bottom usually gets dirty from the ground and it helps everything else stay clean.
      Everything fits neatly inside the pot, which pleases my autism, and it weighs almost nothing.

      Checked, based and dutch oven pilled.

    Nothing.

    Cooking is a pain, cleaning up is a pain. For what? A pile of half-assed minute rice or some cruddy $20 MountainHome rehydrated Hispanice mix?

    Before leaving, smoke some meat overnight or buy tuna/chicken, bake some bannock, and carry some slow-rot produce like taters and apples along, with trailmix and all the gas station candy everyone brings.

    Make a fire, wrap tater in tinfoil, chuck in coals for a bit, eat with meat/tuna and bannock. Literally done, no clean-up, just put foil in your trashbag.

    Save like 2lbs and $100 worth of needless gear. Costs nothing. All the work is done at home.

          Let’s go through the list since you’ve never actually been hiking.

          >Scrub that pot, anon. Every night, instead of enjoying your campfire and relaxing, scrub.
          This takes about a minute.
          >Carry that cookset up every hill on your back.
          You carry raw potatoes. You don’t understand weight savings. I think my entire setup is 7oz.
          >Every time you eat, pull that cookset out and mess with setting it up, finding a level surface, lighting it, and preparing food.
          It’s much, much faster than collecting firewood and building a fire.
          >Keep buying more fuel.
          I bought a gallon of alcohol at the beginning of the year and still have plenty left. I have no idea how much it costs, but you would have to be living in extreme poverty for it to be an issue.
          >Keep waiting for water to boil.
          I’ll be completely finished eating before your potato is cooked.
          >Keep checking your couscous to see if it's ready yet.
          Keep prodding that potato to see if it’s cooked through
          >Keep eating overpriced dehydrated peas and rice from a bag.

          Well, it’s my time an energy, but it’s easier than building a fire every night.

            I carry fiber so I don't end up with an impacted colon or nuke my microbiome from days without proper fiber sources. At any rate, it's an optional component, and not one I bring on more grueling treks or when fires aren't allowed.
            >It’s much, much faster than collecting firewood and building a fire.
            Go camping, don't have a fire. Pat self on back for not burning the poor little dead twigs. Smile smugly in pitch blackness. "Yes, this is living"

            This is peak "I'm a dayhiker and only a dayhiker" right here.

            When I'm out dayhiking, I take one bag of trail mix or jerky and one bottle of water for the entire day. That's fine.

            But when you are on the trail for a week, and it can be rainy or chilly, you need MORALE BOOSTS. Hot coffee boosts morale, hot oats boost morale, hot rich stew, soup, or broth boosts morale, hot meat boosts morale.

            Men much smarter and frankly far more badass than you (say, WW2-era Army generals) knew about the value of morale boosts for marching men, and it applies to hiking as well.

            You literally have no idea what you're talking about, and probably sit in your house all day LARPing.

            >MORALE BOOSTS
            Nothing like dehydrated gruel, right?
            A pot of rice really boosts morale...
            Hot oats are your morale booster...
            >hot meat
            Impossible without a cook set...
            I have found that camping meals are not worth the bother. They taste like shit in the best circumstances. Maybe I just have higher non-camping food standards than the processed bigmac basedcornglop crowd here, but at no point have I eaten a "mood booster" while camping and thought it was much better than a tortilla filled with wax-shell cheese and summer sausage.

            If you get that sad, almost every major thru-hike will have civilized rest stops along the way where you can get ice cream and a steak (and a room/shower/laundry), something you'd know if you weren't a "larper". Eating hot mac n cheese for the 50th time isn't going to do much for your mood by comparison.

            >talking about WW2 generals

                You can eat both dried and fresh fruit. This is not complicated, much as you guys are making it out to be.
                I like as much fresh food as I can carry. If weight becomes an issue, then it gets cut.

                This is funny to me, because I'm likely one of the best home cooks who browses this forum.

                And I will prove it to you in each of my replies from now on. Here is a corned beef brisket that I mesquite smoked and served with braised Amish-grown green beans and parboiled and seared potatoes.

                Anyway, continuing on:

                >Nothing like dehydrated gruel, right?
                No, like coffee, which I already mentioned; or good, steel-cut oats with dates, figs, and honey, which is not "gruel"; or a couple of Bell jars of excellent homemade stew or soup, which, if jarred piping hot, will keep at room temp for days.

                Pic related is a wok-based chicken recipe featuring Chinese sweet bean paste (forget the name of the recipe), green beans again by coincidence (was meant to be sugar snap peas, but no fresh ones at the farmer's market), and Japanese white rice.

                >coffee
                Can't even unwind in nature. There are definitely stoveless ways to get your caffeine hit regardless.
                >oats with dried fruit
                Actual gruel definition. Bannock/cookies are superior in every way.
                >jarred soup
                lol, you guys are giving my crap for bringing fresh produce and you're bringing jars of soup...

                Stoveless is the way. Attempting to eat "good" food on the trail is a waste of effort. Bring fresh produce or don't, but there is nothing you can do with a 750ml pot and a tiny plastic cutting board that's worth getting excited about.
                Accept it and embrace the minimalism.
                It's liberating, less to do each day.

                Bring a couple potatoes and carrots, an onion, a bit of tallow, salt, and some dehydrated ground meat or pemmican. I've made many delicious stews on the camp fire with those simple ingredients. You can also replace the potatoes with lentils or pasta.

                When you implied that you bring fresh food because it’s a source of fiber, as giving up fiber would sacrifice weight. A medium potato has as much fiber as like an ounce of dried fruit. Dehydrated refried beans are probably twice that.

                For more zest, you can add some furikake, a shelf-stable Japanese seasoning mix.

                A green onion, especially garden-fresh, can last quite a long while even at room temperature/not too unreasonably hot outdoor temperature.

                I have found that camping meals are not worth the bother. They taste like shit in the best circumstances. Maybe I just have higher non-camping food standards than the processed bigmac basedcornglop crowd here, but at no point have I eaten a "mood booster" while camping and thought it was much better than a tortilla filled with wax-shell cheese and summer sausage.

                If you get that sad, almost every major thru-hike will have civilized rest stops along the way where you can get ice cream and a steak (and a room/shower/laundry), something you'd know if you weren't a "larper". Eating hot mac n cheese for the 50th time isn't going to do much for your mood by comparison.

              No, like coffee, which I already mentioned; or good, steel-cut oats with dates, figs, and honey, which is not "gruel"; or a couple of Bell jars of excellent homemade stew or soup, which, if jarred piping hot, will keep at room temp for days.

              Pic related is a wok-based chicken recipe featuring Chinese sweet bean paste (forget the name of the recipe), green beans again by coincidence (was meant to be sugar snap peas, but no fresh ones at the farmer's market), and Japanese white rice.

          This is peak "I'm a dayhiker and only a dayhiker" right here.

          When I'm out dayhiking, I take one bag of trail mix or jerky and one bottle of water for the entire day. That's fine.

          But when you are on the trail for a week, and it can be rainy or chilly, you need MORALE BOOSTS. Hot coffee boosts morale, hot oats boost morale, hot rich stew, soup, or broth boosts morale, hot meat boosts morale.

          Men much smarter and frankly far more badass than you (say, WW2-era Army generals) knew about the value of morale boosts for marching men, and it applies to hiking as well.

          You literally have no idea what you're talking about, and probably sit in your house all day LARPing.

            Ah yeah, forgot the important bit: It's been mentioned already, but collecting fuel and building a fire takes absolutely forever compared to using a canister stove.

            So the "burners and cookware are inconvenient" portion of your argument is utter nonsense. They are far more convenient than campfires.

            I do t think she’s a larper, I just think she’s European. They have a much different definition of backpacking than Americans. They’ll hike a few kilometers down farm roads then hide out in a tiny sliver of woods for a few days and call it backpacking. They don’t worry about weight since they’re not going far, hence the potatoes, and they’re not spending most of the day hiking (they’re camping in the same spot), so they can build a fire every night.

My country doesn't even allow you to camp in the woods so if you want to camp your stuck with designated camp grounds full of boomers and their oversized campervans and families with kids. Or cross the border for every trip first.

          Breaking the pasta isn't bad at all, in fact if you want to make "pastina" for small kids or to eat in a broth you can just crush spaghetti. The worrisome parts are "the pasta should have absorbed most of the water in the pot by now", I imagine that shit is a total slop by the time it's done although it's not as dire in a soup like recipe; and second, a WHOLE fucking dado in 300ml of liquid would make this unbearably salty. Generally one whole cube is good for 1 liter of broth. 500 ml if you really like salt.
          cheese dropped in while cooking form a hard as fuck to remove patina at the bottom of the pot assuming it's some kind of thin camp cookware.

              By finding a balance between a spoon and a fork, you sacrifice some utility of both. Why would I sacrifice the utility of a spoon when I never need a fork?

      I (obnoxious cookfag) use an MSR Windburner, mainly because it really is virtually windproof... but it is a meme, and more than anyone really needs. It's okay to fall for memes sometimes, as long as you are self-aware while doing so.

      Homemade alcohol or esbit stoves with homemade windscreens (if you're remotely capable at fabricating simple things) are probably the best combo of not being memes, not being overpriced, not being more than anyone really needs.

                It does look a bit odd to me (guy who posted other smoker pics), but then I never try for heavy barks. Frankly, though, half the time smoked meat looks burnt, ruined, or otherwise somehow completely fucked to the untrained eye, then when you taste it it's like you just walked into a world-class pulled pork joint run by a quaint old black man.

                Anyway, here's a weeb-approved dish I made last night: Hondashi stock, miso paste, an entire sheet of nori snipped up with shears, Chinese shrimp-egg noodles (egg noodles with shrimp dust in them... the Chinese, amirite folks), and some green onion for garnish.

                It was delicious. I'm thinking of adding bonito flakes, a dash of furikake, and a poached egg next time.

                I attended a private school, so I generally use complete sentences and punctuation. I know that this can be confusing to public school graduates, who often mistake halfway-decent vocabulary and grammar for homosexual or cuckoldry-related tendencies.

                Rest easy, because despite the fact that I'm not functionally illiterate, I'm still prejudiced against minorities and I believe in good, Christian pairings that result in healthy white children. Actually, a real education tends to lead to such beliefs.

        The funny thing is that when you do look back at screenshots of REALLY old /b/ threads, the banter and the memes are straight-up ebaumsworld-tier. Of course, old PrepHole stole some of its "culture" from older websites like ebaumsworld and Something Awful (ebaumsworld, in turn, stole from various pre-2000 content sites, BBSes, and forums), while newer shit like Reddit and 9gag stole from PrepHole. The cycle goes on....

        The real truth is that the strife of these past two decades has hardened PrepHole, tried it, tested it, added layers of irony, actually given it its own absurd culture.

        I've been online since 1993 (8 years old at the time). <1% of people who browse PrepHole (or any Internet user, for that matter) have been around that long.

          Down to zero Celsius for sure, since the boiling point of butane is about -4°C. But if you live anywhere with proper winters, then I'd advice you to get a backup mean for heating your foods.

      I always hated my issued canteen, it tasted like I was drinking out of a super soaker, the canteen cup was crusty and tactilely unpleasant. Are anons getting different canteens and cups, like the stainless steel replicas? I would be furious if I paid money for the original products, although I kind of did by paying taxes.

    I just bought a used first gen pocket rocket for $15 and it's great to be honest. I was looking at the later models and they have better packing solutions, but for now this one will do me fine.

    I'm new to wild camping and worry about stability, i can see it being easy to knock over, especially on a small gas cannister, would digging a small hole to support the stove work? or maybe a few rocks around it. I'll have a play around when I next go PrepHole and let you know how it went.

    The problem with cooking systems is how do you clean them up?? You need several liters of water just to clean 3-4 pots. Do you carry detergent or how do you clean them up?

      I made a thread about this a few weeks back, and as always the board showed it’s Cro-Magnon level of retardation.

      A consensus was never reached (except for water, which is obvious and ubiquitous), but some themes were repeated. A combination of these things were mentioned:

      Soap
      Sponge
      Scouring pad
      Sand

      Why do we clean our cookware? Let’s look at each reason and see how each item works.
      >burnt, stuck food
      Soap and sponges do nothing. Scouring pads work but sand is much more abrasive.
      >fat/grease
      Soap and a sponge work well, but sand and a lot of water (such as wherever you might refill your drinking water) work just as well.
      >bacteria
      This depends on the type of cooking you’re doing. If you’re boiling water first, it’s not an issue. If you’re actually cooking, then you may want soap.

              I live in Louisiana, and go on overnight kayaking trips in the Atchafalaya basin. Last February I spent three nights in the Attakapas WMA, a 30,000 acre cypres swamp. Does that count? It’s sandy enough for cleaning a pot. I use the same technique when I travel to Oregon for work (and stay to hike because it’s Oregon), and when I visit the Smokies in the fall.

                Why you need to overexaggerate things so your way seems more viable? Its a max 5-10 minute task to gather firewood for your cooking needs. I dont know where you hike but here there are nothing but endless forests everywhere you go. Every bigger spruce three has small dead branches on the bottom of the trunk that stay dry even during heavy rainstorms and winter time. Its not a difficult task to make a fire here.

    I think I will get a BCB folding multi-fuel stove and put wood sticks in it. Should be enough to warm a teacup or fry an egg.
    Do you think it will work?

      yeah, it will just be a bit more work lighting the fire and take a bit longer if you are using sticks. But if you are in no rush, than its no big deal.

        >These are basically Esbit stoves, right?
        yeah they're pretty much the same. the default is using fuel tablets, but I have read a couple instances of "you can use them with sticks" and since they're so compact and cost so little I thought why not. I'm just afraid that it would warp or something, but solid fuel reaches pretty high temperatures so maybe not?

          I haven't used that particular model before, but for $5 or so why not try it. Sounds like it is aluminum, but for the size of fire you are going to be able to make in there I doubt it will get hot enough to cause any damage. Not going to hurt anything to pick one up and give it a try.

            either way it was so cheap, and if I need something larger I'll just dig a dakota fire pit because they seem awesome and easy to make

            All the dakota pits I've dug have worked quite effectively, although that wasn't in the pissing rain. Plus the hobo stove would probably be smaller than your fire-pit and might need a similar workload to process fuel and fit it inside.

            I think they're very attractive, especially since they make no smoke and they should be easy to put out and hide after you're done.

      Why not? I guess it would work just fine, given that you bother to feed the fire constantly with small pieces of wood.

      >BCB folding multi-fuel stove

      Yes. They are designed to work with BCB's own ethanol based Firedragon fuel tablets, but they do also work with hexamine and alcohol gels. They can hold 3 firedragon fuel tablets inside when folded shut as well, so they are great as a backup stove.

They also come with 6 large tablets each. I had a drawer full of them and sold some at ebay. I still have a bunch, but they stink, so i don't use them.
              I bought a bunch of large, cheap gas canisters, i think 450g each. I then got an adapter to refill my one small 100g canister.

    The argument for a twig stove is pretty weak. The only reason to bring one is that it’s fun to build and constantly maintain a little fire, and really if you like doing that then that’s all the reasoning you need. “I just like it is all” trumps everything else.

    They’re heavier than just about any other option out there (and not even close to a Supercat). Maybe after a week or something the weight of alcohol would be more than a twig stove, but let’s not kid ourselves.

    Anyone saying they can find dry twigs in the rain is just being silly, but worst case scenario would be you have to eat your snacks or lunch for dinner and figure it out later. Actually worse case would be days of rain on end, so you have to start cutting wood, and there goes your weight savings. Carrying a knife or axe to process wood for your stove starts to shy away from backpacking and get into bushcraft, and it’s no longer a case of “just break some small twigs bro.” Cooking becomes even more of a chore.

    There’s also the issue of soot. Any wood fire is going to turn your pot into a charred, sooty piece of shit pretty quickly. Alcohol and canisters don’t leave any residue, unless you’re a retard who burns rubbing alcohol.

      There are titanium twig stoves that are just as light as your empty fuel canister. Alcohol stoves will give you some soot no matter what kind of alcohol you use. That stuff is also very nasty tasting and even a little bit of that shit inside your pot will ruin your food. Not a problem with wood and i dont really care about it when i can just rub most of it off and then pots meshbag will cover the rest of it. You can minimize soot buildup by placing your pot on a charcoals, not over a direct flame. This is good practise anyways if you dont want to burn your slow cooking food.

          100g jetboil canister weights 94g empty. Bigger 230g canister weights 126g empty. With alcohol stoves you can benefit from a lighter weight but only on a short trip. Gas has twice the energy density so on a longer trip it makes more sense to bring a gas stove

          Dont lie about alcohol soot, there will be some. If you cant store fuel inside your pot its wasted space. Also soot can get inside your pot from your fingers or washcloth when you are cleaning your pot or million other ways. The fuel itself also tastes bad.

          We are talking about both. Campfire is obviously for the camp like the name suggest and twig stove is for on the go cooking. Building a campfire have many other usefull purposes too, not just cooking. But you do you and me do me.

    like yes, no surprise, your typical guided expedition is going to require 10k of gear. casual winter backpacking isn't cheap either just look at what a shelter pad and sleeping bag for winter costs typically and ask if an extra stove/fuel is really an issue.

    I've been experimenting with a lot of different combinations but i've settled on the following:

    220g gas canister
    Soto Windmaster
    2 different Toaks titanium cups
    GSI Pinnacle 10 frypan
    Titanium cooking grate for open fire

    This gives me a good combination of capabilities and weight. Obviously the GSI Pinnacle is the bulk of the weight, but I find I can cook most stuff with this. If i need to save weight or if i'm only bringing freeze dried stuff i'll skip the fry pan, obviously.

    I also have a Trangia alcohol stove set which I like a lot and bring for more chill daily stuff sometimes, but the weight/performance isn't there obviously, and i hate lugging alcohol around.

      I noticed this as well. Things that I’ve actually done, know as fact, and are accepted as common knowledge or colloquial wisdom are just plainly labeled as wrong. It’s fucking weird.

      The alcohol soot thing is a prime example. Everyone but this one gay knows there’s no soot from alcohol stoves. It’s common knowledge (common within backpacking circles, anyway). Saying that there’s soot isn’t an opinion. It’s just retard-tier factually incorrect. There’s no debate, and can’t be. You can argue about weight, ease of use, speed, or whatever, but when some moron chimes in about soot everything else they say can just be disregarded.

      Pic unrelated but it demonstrates a topic where there can be debate (sand can work, though I prefer a scouring pad)

    If anyone here is deciding to get a steel bottle: do not get one that is long and narrow like a bottle, get a steel army style canteen. They have a wider base so you can place them anywhere and they won't topple over and you can also rest them on most stoves to boil water with.
    At the very least get a bottle that is as fat and short as possible. I've come to really hate my steel bottle. The only advantage it has is that it fits into urbanite backpacks' side pocket but that doesn't even make it much easier to reach.
