I know we all like and have multiple stoves. But we are talking from 60 to 90 meals with what is available right at your house. Here using a grill and twig stove I have enough wood for maybe 20 meals , I also have propane burner stoves with the one lb bottles ,I have the adapter so I can run off of the 20 lb bottle also a couple one burner liguid fuel stoves.
Now this is what I will wind up buying

I know a lot of folks have natural gas stoves , some want work if you loose electricity. and depending on the disaster there may be no natural gas . I use an oven alot so I will buy that stove the next time I have a 183.00 loose.
Look AROUND A SEE HOW MANY MEALS YOU HAVE FUEL FOR. Opps cap locks

I built several tin can rocket stoves and alcohol soda can stoves as demos for my scouts. I have enough firewood to last for 3 years.

That's not including all the propane and white gas stoves lying around here.

In the out door kitchen I have a 4 burner BBQ and a two burner cook top , all gas , down the shed I have a Coleman Road trip grill , a two burner cook top and a three ring burner , got a trangia stove in the car and two single burner cartridge stoves and another one in the shed , got 10 cartridges for each of the three stoves

Also got a wood fires BBQ in the back year and a pile of timber , also got 4 camp ovens

In addition to the Trangia and various gas cookers, We have one of these,

http://www.ozpig.com.au/?q=products

They are essentially a 9kg (20pound?) gas bottle that has been modified to something like a pot belly stove.

The Ozpig is a stroke of genius provided one has access to a little firewood. They are surprisingly economical on wood, burn real hot and are ideal for grilling or cooking with camp (Dutch) ovens.



Similar stoves can be easily made from old gas bottles and for a few ideas have a look here,

Take a look at a Coleman folding oven. May be OK for what you want.
The Coleman folking oven is good for camping but not good for extended use like Ron is talking about. They are just not efficient. The Butterfly oven is a lot better. It does not fold up and it is insulated. It also a little larger.

I just ordered the Butterfly three burne kerosene stove with stand. I had said ealier that another site other than St. Pauls that piper thought so much of had better prices so I made a compairison between the two and it onle came only a couple of dolars difference. I remembered what Piper said about the Great coustomer service he receied from St. Pauls, so I ordered from St Pauls. Thanks Piper . I'll order the oven and kerosene lantern later.

I have their Model #2641 10-Wick Kerosene Stove. Works well. Similar to the stoves the Vietnamese used on their sampans. I bought it several years back when it was about $10 less. At that time it came with a spare set of wicks.

while i was camping this past week beings i had a boat load already instead of taking my double burner coleman stove i took my single dual fuel 533 i believe is the model. i had bought it to take canoeing . it performed great and will heat something up in a hurry. the only thing i did notice because of the smaller surface where ur pan sets you have to be careful of it sliding off or you knocking it off. whereas with the bigger stove you have more surface and don,t have that problem.
looks like the kerosen lanterns and stoves have come along way since the old huricane lanterns?

Those stove have a different kind of metal in the little grate that sits over the burner. They get "slippery" when hot. Also, the small diameter flame will tend to scorch stuff. I put a tin can lid on, then set the pan on top of that. Acts as a heat spreader.
