    Yes! HEET in YELLOW bottle. Best to use for low odor when burning

    Jon,

    Well, we’re in San Diego and our Scout Troop only gets to the Sierras once, maybe twice a year, so it doesn’t make sense for us to have alcohol stoves just for the Sierras.  Besides, those trips are usually at least a week and for 8-12 people in our crew we’d have to carry a significant amount of alcohol fuel, partially offsetting the weight savings of the stoves.  On PCT between the Mexican border and the Mohave Desert, many parts of it have alcohol stove bans (and our Troop has hiked several sections of the PCT).  I also doubt Philmont would allow the use of alcohol stoves but I could be wrong.  Thanks, CV

    They do not allow alcohol stoves and even if they didn’t, it would be useless for patrol method cooking they require with large pots.

    Let me 2nd Rex’s Trail Design Kojin WITH the appropriate Caldera Cone.  I believe it meets the BSA guidelines and the cone makes dumping a pot highly unlikely.

    For you SoCal folk, use either yellow Heet or order online thru Home Depot (or equivalent).

    Trangias have large pots.

    Trangias are standard equipment in outdoor training in Australia because they’re not pressurised so they’re safe for kids to use, with the proviso that the flames are hard to see.
