Default Cooking in the woods/mountain

Do any of you have a propane burner and propane on your survival list?

Yep. It's the easiest way to cook if propane is available. I've had and used for years a simple 2 burner propane stve for years. In a pinch, just about any type of volitile fuel can be used to cook. A small piece of rag or paper towel placed in a small can which can be soaked with kerosene or rubbing alcohol or diesel makes a nifty little cooker. Of course, wood will work just fine when there's nothing else.

You should try to have several options for cooking. First is what you normally use, gas or electric. Then you need to plan for if utilities are interrupted. I have a Coleman stove that will burn coleman fuel and propane with the adapter. I also have a Camp Chef two burner cooker that I can run from 20# bottles, I have two of those. Next is charcoal, I have 10 five gallon buckets stored with natural lump charcoal for emergency use. If it comes to it I can also burn wood in my smoker/grill.

I am planning on building an adobe outdoor oven this summer, I want to try it for baking breads, meals and pizza.

I try to pick up a two pack of 1# propane cylinders every month to store for an emergency. We were hit by an ice storm several years ago and I couldn't find the little bastiches anywhere, they were sold out as soon as they got to the stores. I only had a couple at the time and they ran out too fast.
I know this is not woods/mountain, but I'm going to stay home as long as I can.

It's not on my "survival list" as it is on my "cooking supply list". I use a propane burner ever couple days when I'm sitting outside. It's handy to make coffee, fry up a fish (so I don't have to run the fans in the house), and make my breakfast or dinner.

I have a two burner propane stove, the propane oven and stove top in my motorhome, two Camp Chef single burner butane stoves. I have saved two #10 cans (from canned peaches) to use as a hobo stove if necessary, two 20# bags of charcoal, just in case and a fire starting kit in case I run out of the 20 boxes of strike anywhere matches I have in a dry vacuum sealed container.

Coleman dual fuel stove. All season fuel is pretty cheap compared to similar sized propane bottles, and in a pinch you can use regular unleaded gasoline as a substitute. Very cool toy.

This one runs off of coleman fuel, gasoline, and kerosene. Very cool...

I have a Coleman dual burner propane stove. I pick up propane on a regular basis and have a decent stockpile.

We've also got a Hibachi with some charcoal put back.

I also keep a bunch of Sterno around. I have been putting off buying Esbit Stoves, but I plan on getting them and fuel soon.

After we move, we'll also be buying a Barbecue or combination with a smoker. I think we'll stay with charcoal so we'll have more fuel options.

I use this for backpacking.

MSR DragonFly Backpacking Stove at REI.com

I sacraficed a little weight with this stove when considering the total back pack weight but I like the white gas for cooking at higher altitudes. The feature I like the best about this stove is that you have good heat control compaired to other compressed gas stoves of this size. It's also a multi fuel stove.

I just have a single unit stove I can hook it up to either a small tank or one of the bigger ones. It kind of sucks but it's cooks ok enough.
