Not many things are more crucial to a good trip than a nice meal. Having the tools to cook a nice meal can be hard to come by especially with all the different fuel types and makes of stoves that exist. I have used all sorts of Coleman stoves, backpacking stoves, single burner and duel burner stoves, but honestly I was never really satisfied with them. Like most other gear, sometimes cooking stoves are a trial by fire. I personally have ruled out propane, ISO butane, and butane as viable fuel sources for my camp stoves. I use gasoline, white gas, or the wood fire took cook now. However, I still had one issue with white gas stoves. It seemed that on the market you either could buy a portable white gas stove that is like cooking on a jet engine, or a stove that is so large the practicality of taking it on trips are lost. I am looking at the MSR dragon fly as my go-to stove now. With the mindset that the stove saves space, is durable, is reliable, and has the real capability to simmer. If you could only have one reliable cooking source/system what would it be?
