Stoves

Although some people cook over the fire grate in camp, many people use stoves for cooking either for convience reasons or due to fireban situations. Picking the correct stove for your trips depends on group size, weight/size considerations, and types of cooking. Stoves are used for cooking and sometime groups prefer to boil water for purification of water.
