What survival stove do you use?

I have a couple of survival stoves from Defend Survive Prepare, one of our affiliates. What do you have on hand for cooking/heating when the lights go out?

    I used to do a lot of backpacking and still do a lot of camping for work and play so have a variety of portable stoves. They range from tiny homemade alcohol burning soda can stoves to a Coleman double burner stove. But my go to survival stove is a wood burning rocket stove since I have an endless supply of wood in the surrounding forest.

    We heat our house with a wood burning stove so power outages are not an issue.

    I can pivot to a big LPG BBQ in my enclosed undercover area. Also three small butane cannister camp stoves, a very small and well-used hexamine tablet military stove, a small stick-burning Solo-stove and a Jetboil Minimo system for hiking.

    It all depends! If you have access to wood and want to travel light get a small metal grate. If you want to get fancy and reduce your visibility get a rocket stove or learn to build a dakota fire hole. Next after that, I'd look for a butane stove and plan to get 150% of the bottles you think you will need. If you think it may be for more than a few days, it may be wiser to try a white gas stove, it's easier to carry more fuel in one large gallon sized container along with two gas bottles to pump up (incase one gets a damaged o-ring). Lastly, if you think you'll want to cook for more people or don't plan on moving, a propane stove might be a better choice, bottles come in all sizes.

    For vehicle overland trips, I have a folding Kampmate rocketstove, but in my xbob, I always have a folding pocketstove. That's always been my go-to on remote camping trips.
