Multi Burner Stoves.

Obviously, backpack or even the larger single burner type stoves are totally inadequate to serve the needs of a group of people whether camping, a weekend cabin stay, or disaster survival. Enter the multi burner stove category.

These stoves are portable and generally use either propane or liquid fuels.

Propane fuel is easy to use and store and burns very hot.

White gas or motor gasoline fuel stoves also burn hot but fuel storage can present greater challenge.

Alcohol type stoves lack the hot cooking temps but do have easy to handle and store fuel containers.

Propane vs Gasoline cooking.

Two burner:

For most situations these compact stoves fill the need for not only the camping and vacation type needs but disaster situations as well when it comes to the small group of people.

Yes for fixed or long term larger group heavy use the cast type stoves will offer certain advantages.

Here are some excellent examples.

The larger the group of people and or the more complicated the cooking tasks call for more than two burner type stoves.

Again, cast iron or heavier type stoves offer advantages for fixed locations and heavy use.

Lets look at three and four burner types.

Food My favorite subject

411 I use a backpacking stove for up to 5 people The trick is to get the dish almost cooked and take it off leave the lid on and put the next course on the stove My peak one expedition kit has lids that you can nest all the pots in that way one is cooking while the other is still hot. Works fine even for hungry backpackers. You will consume one course while the other(s) are cooking. I really don't know if propane stoves are a good idea because of lack of fuel and a propane cyl or tank is heavy. I would only need a siphon hose to get gas from a wrecked car. All my stoves run on auto fuel of some kind or another. I have an old coman 2 burner that runs on unleaded gas but only use it for car camping.
