The best ultralight backpacking stoves for thru-hiking. All fuel sources included - canister, alcohol, liquid and wood. The complete guide to 2019 backcountry cooking. No more lugging around huge bottles of propane and heavy stove tops. These babies have gotten down to only a few ounces and can fit in your pocket. A guide to the best ultralight backpacking stoves for canister, alcohol, liquid, wood fuel. Tested and written by ultralight Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail thru-hikers. So you wanna cook in the backcountry, eh? Backpacking stoves have come a loooong way in recent years. Once you are done cooking, the stove top folds back up into the palm of your hand for convenient storage. Fuel canisters are heavily pressurized by one of a few different fuel sources: Propane, Butane or Isobutane. All of these fuel types work well and only vary slightly in functionality.

Ultralight Backpacking Stoves. Eating a warm meal at the end of a long day on the trail can be one of the best parts of your day, and with lightweight cooking options, it doesn't have to break your back while you hike either! Many ultralight backpacking stoves only weigh a few ounces and will be well worth the small investment. The most common lightweight stoves options are canister stoves, alcohol stoves, wood stoves, and solid fuel stoves  . Wood stoves create an efficient system for using fire to cook your trail meals. It’s the same concept as cooking over a campfire, but with a wood stove, it'll be much easier to do. Wood stoves tend to be heavier than other stoves, but there are some good lightweight options out there.

Alcohol stoves are a popular backpacking stove among thru-hikers and long distance backpackers because they are lightweight, inexpensive and burn liquid fuel that is easy to find in most small towns. An entire cottage industry has sprung up around designing and building different variations of alcohol stove. The Solo Stove has thicker metal in it and only 20 welds while and will leave some cash in your pocket. The Bush Buddy has thinner metal( both have the same type of metal ) and 200 welds. This way all you need to have along is a couple of ounces of alcohol, i take about 6 oz, which can also be used to start the wood fire. Just dip a stick in it, light it and place it on the wood.

Ultralight stoves, for instance, are made to boil water and lack functionality to simmer, bake, or cook. Other stoves are a balance of all asset classes, they’re usable in extreme weather, reliable, and durable. These stoves are meant to put out enough heat to cook group meals or be fine-tuned to simmer or bake a delicate meal in the backcountry. This category includes all the unconventional options which gram weenies (myself included), seemingly alone, love to tinker with. A lot of times you can’t just burn debris to heat up your meal – with fire restrictions or LNT principles in effect. But the Ohuhu stove allows a contained, controlled burn that funnels all of the heat up into your pot of water. Of course, once the first is started you won’t be able to adjust or simmer with it.

How you can hike lighter, hike better, hike simpler, make your own stoves and have lots of fun in the woods, either alone or with friends (if you have any). Featuring tips, stories and ravings from the author and his imaginary friends and relatives like Uncle Reinhold Pudzer, Citron Ella Schmelling, Joe "Dirty Maggot" Periwinkle the thru-hiker, and possibly some others too frightening to mention, like Aunt Lydia Pudzer, who provides frequent scoldings. And don't forget the extensive lexicon of stove and hiking terms which may make you shoot stuff right out of your nostrils, even without meaning to. Or the instructions on how to make five different kinds of ultralight stoves. That you can actually use. To burn your lunch with. Many pages of goodness at a reasonable price. And a genuine recipe or two. No, really. How can you beat that? Illustrated too!

Fun to read with lots of humor,but not much information about the subject.

I have to say that I regret spending a whopping $2.99 for this. Waste of $$. Lots of drivel about the authors make believe friends and family, and little real information about stoves.

WoW, so boring a sample. Just couldn't buy anything that so turned me off, I am sure the rest of this book just couldn't be this bad.
