I was impressed how well my hobo rocket stove burned for a cheap stove. Clean and hot flame. Not so much by how you have to constantly tend the fire. A little easier to tend with pellets. Looks like a much bigger fire chamber on the KK but more $$.

I also have had a MSR Whisperlite and Coleman one and two burners for years. Depends on the trip.

Agreed, I like how the Kelly Kettles internal chamber can boil water in under 3 mins while you cook on top. However it can also be a downfall that it is required for water to be in the chamber when in use. Not that big of a deal where we are from as water is readily available pretty much where ever you go in Canada.

I have used my trusty coleman peak 1for almost 30 years. though it runs best on white gas I've used it with unleaded many times esp when moto camping with no problems yet. Takes a bit longer to get up to temperature with unleaded. No need to carry separate fuel as I tap it right out of the gas tank. I've backpacked with it too but not as ideal for that due to weight, not such an issue on the bike. I have a pot it fits in with spoon and cup - what else do you need! When it gives out, if ever, I'll get a whisper lite multi fuel or something similar. The issue I'd have with the organic matter stoves is how do they do when it's raining and all the fuel is damp?

I have an old optimums 99 camp stove. I found it in a pawn shop for $15. It runs on Coleman fuel and regular gasoline. From what I have found it is actually a very old stove but it still works great for my camp trips on the DR. :biggrin:

The MSR whisper lite international is a beauty of a small light weight stove, it burns lots of different liquid fuels, including gasoline. It has been around for decades, easy maintenance and super reliable, just like the DR.

I've posted before in here about my Whisperlite but it is a great stove. Best thing is I don't even camp but use it in the garage several times a month to fry chicken strips, make a pot of chili, boil sausages in beer etc.. It has no problem holding a 4 quart cast iron Dutch oven loaded to the top. Camp fuel is $7 a gallon at wally world and a MSR small bottle lasts almost two hours. Easy to light, packs up small and just plain old works. Someday I'll get an vintage Optimums as they are just plain old neato.

I also like to fool around cooking meals on penny stoves, just because I can.

Ok,

So - lots and lots of stove options out there.

One brand not mentioned yet is White Box Stove.

http://whiteboxalcoholstoves.com/

I don't have affiliation with the guy, but I can say that the stove is top notch.

With this stove, have a level/stable surface is kinda important.

Never tried it on unleaded, but the HEET works very well.

Also - a good ultra-lite cookpot is: https://www.amazon.com/Stanco-Non-Stick ... grease+can

I'll stand on everything i own sooner or later in my riding boots when camping.
drunk or sober, doesn't matter, if it's on the ground, i somehow stand on it..

trangia is pretty much boot proof for me.
some of the things in this thread not so much for me..

this fits into this
burner, stand, shield, 2 saucepans, fry pan, handle, kettle, chopping/strainer board, fire starter, clean rag, dry rag.

tape measure was a fail - its about 20cm wide by 11 cm deep..
