For solo camping I use this setup:

Etek-City gas burner. Literally fits in palm of your hand and comes with a nice plastic case. Uses the MSR, etc. gas canisters. I used this stove all last summer no problem. My brother has one too. You can get a 2 pack for less than $20.

Then I added this Kovea adaptor which allows you to hook it up to the little green Coleman propane bottles which you can find everywhere, like all in my camping gear boxes, so you have two fuel options.

Finally I got this inexpensive windscreen.

When I'm feeling rustic I break this out. Folding titanium wood stove. They have a stainless one too but I got this as a present. (From me, To me :rofl: )

I Have a ton of pots and things but I've been digging this Stanley set. I leave the cups it comes with out (but they are nice) and put my stove and titanium coffee mug in it. It packs well in oddly shaped motorcycle luggage nooks and crannies.

My Toaks 450 ml mug:

For eating I use a Toaks titanium long handle spoon. Great for if you are doing dehydrated pouches as you don't have to get goop on your fingers.

That's the basics of what I carry. Salt, pepper and season all too. I'm also a cheap bastard and find it convenient to stop at a McDonalds for a drink if I need to resupply some salt and pepper, sugar or ketchup. :rofl:

I use a small alcohol stove built by member ShadyRascal. He's not making them anymore, but I've been using it for years. I haven't found a faster way to boil water. Per his recommendation, I use the yellow bottles of heet for fuel. I filled a MSR bottle with the stuff years ago and have only used about half of it. Should last a long while.

For cookware, I use an Open Country 2 person back packer kit. It's no longer available either, but I think it was only $15 when I bought it. Pro tip...use wax paper to keep the plates/pans from rubbing against each other during transport.

I can easily fit two of the alcohol stoves and some matches inside to cookware kit during transport. Keeps everything together and no wasted space.

I use a Mini Trangia its a brilliant little kit that comes as burner, stand, pan and frypan/lid all for 330g (11.6oz). As its not gas its nice and quiet and you can cook a proper breakfast of eggs and bacon on it :)

Penny stove. Cheap, light, durable, 20+/- minutes burn time per charge and easy to make.

Wal-Mart also carries the Stanley camping cook/mug set if you want to touch, see, feel it before you buy.

Since my setup seems to be popular, I'll just share how I pack it all up.

Travel mode:

First glance inside:

Completely disassembled:

Ready to go:

I prefer to take things like beans, soup, and Ramen as that means a quick prep and cook time, every time.
I also have a small grate packed away some where to grill meat on. I keep a small emergency water purifier in here now and plan on using this for my main source: http://www.amazon.com/LifeStraw-Family-1-0-Water-Purifier/dp/B00FM9OBQS?ie=UTF8&keywords=water%20purifier&qid=1461370717&ref_=sr_1_16&sr=8-16

It depends!

Image

I`m another fan of alky stoves. The one I carry more often than not is a "cat" stove (generally made from empty cat food or potted meat can). The stove, windscreen, fuel measure, and a small pair of gloves for handling the hot pot (or for chilly mornings) all pack inside the two-cup pot. For one or two nights I just carry an 8 oz juice bottle full of fuel, or the whole HEET bottle if out for longer.
Image

For bigger scale, I also made one of the same design from a 7 oz tuna can to use when my wife goes along. Didn`t take a specific picture of that one, but it`s in the top pic between the little butane jobber and the 442. It worked fine, but I only used it once and decided I might as well just pack the single burner Coleman since it`s a little more convenient and neither space nor weight is an issue when camping out of the trunk of a car.

The little Coleman has a permanent place in my heart since it`s the one I`ve had the longest- bought it when I was stationed in NC either `88 or `89. I usually use my "sugar" pot with that one because the stove fits inside jut right. Found that pot in a thrift shop made athe handle for it and modded it with the little grabber thing : )
Image

My alcohol stove works only mediocre when it gets down to about freezing, and uses quite a bit more fuel, so I carry the butane stove if I expect it to get cold. The butane one also goes with me in late summer when fire season is at its peak because I`ve been chewed out by a ranger before when he saw me using an "open flame" to make my morning coffee. Not so sure that tippy, top-heavy contraption actually any safer than my cat stove, but it keeps me out of trouble. The tuna stove and the double burner Coleman (much older than my 442 but technically still belongs to my mom and dad) have never gone out on the motorcycle though, and I doubt they ever will.

I have several stoves for use with gas cannisters, alcohol or wood.
My favourite is the MSR WindPro II Stove - great stove to use and the gas cylinder can be inverted when low on gas or too cold.
I like the gas burners for not sooting up my cookware and for being able to control the flame.

I like to use a windscreen for more efficiency:

I used to use the MSR pocket rocket, but I got tired of carrying multiple containers and now I have 5 containers that are 1/4 full sitting on my shelves. Now I carry a Vargo Triad alcohol stove; quiet, uses cheap gas that I can buy at any hardware store, and is super quiet compared to the jet-engine pocket rocket.

What other things I bring depend on how fancy I'm feeling. If I want to just do the dehydrated meal route, then just a pot and spork to eat with. I guess even if I'm fancy then that's about what I'm bringing but more food.
