Unlike butane burners etc the unleaded petrol burner doesn't blow out in the wind.
I go ashore armed with a frying pan and provisions and rustle up a tasty treat and a nice pot of tea.
Loveing the responses. Didn't realize you could get that type of cooker. Are they any good? Assume they are quicker than the old meths tranja? The gas one I have isn't the best in a breeze. Tend to use the lid as a wind break and tuck it behind bushes. No,, not dry dusty ones!

They really are the dogs nuts!
I've got 2 of the things, one of which is over 20 years old. Never let me down and never been blown out even in the winduest of conditions.
Gas is only any good on a still calm day or indoors.
Most of my hill walking buddies have ditched the gas stoves as they are useless at the top of a windy mountain.
Coleman dual fuel stoves will burn Coleman stove fuel or unleaded quite happily.
Hence the dual fuel name.
Very powerful heat given off for when you need to eat fast.

I have used quite a few varieties of portable cooking stoves while camping including white gas stoves (eg Coleman & whisperlite), ispropyl alcohol stoves made from aluminum pop cans, isobutane stoves and wood stoves.

The Coleman "white gas" do work well in windy and also in very cold conditions (have used them at -25 C ). They've been a mainstay for car campers and powerboat campers for many years. The one drawback is their size and weight (definitely not for backpacking) There are small single burner backpacking stoves (eg whisperlite etc.) that also use naptha and also work equally well in windy and very cold weather, but they obviously won't have the stable base that a Coleman 2 burner stove has.

If I'm out in conditions warmer than 0 C (which covers most, but not all of my SIBbing) and I want something really compact, I'll grab a backpacking stove that screws onto the top of a pressurized isobutane cartridge. Because the fuel is in a pressurized canister, it has no problem running in the windiest conditions (basically like a small handheld blow torch but with a wide circular flame).

The model I have is the MSR pocket rocket, but there are countless dozens of similar designs out there to choose from. The reason I prefer stoves that use pressurized isobutane cartridges is that you don't need to mess about pouring naptha into containers, & priming the containers etc. The drawback is that those containers are not reusable. Again, the backpacking style stoves will limit how large a pan you can cook with.

If I'm in an area where an open fire is ok, I'll just bring a stainless steel grille and prop it across 2 rocks on each side of the fire.

Look on the web for "Lotusgrill". I have one which i use on my motorhome and on my small sib. They are a bit dear but once you have one you can carry it about when cooking as the outer shell stays cold. It is a new German design but it only requires a few ounces of fuel in a centre circular container. It also has a small battery fan which allows you to cook within 4 minutes of lighting it. It is not as hot as some barbecues but ideal for bacon, sausage, steak etc.
I place the grill in a small box in my SIB and no heat escapes through the grill base or sides. Once you have finished switch off the fan and the ashes remain self contained in the central steel container. Its brilliant. Oh yes, uses liquid gel lighting fuel on a central plate that the steel container rests on. Very clean and not the least bit messy.
Sorry its long winded but hope it hels

Superb. Many thanks. Maybe not such a daft idea then with the right cooker. Cheers

You are still dealing with a device that has a flame while extremely close to gasoline seepage.

I'm with you on that... I'm sure you could manage with something like this:





or maybe better still one of the tiny flasks and just keep the hot bacon in and the roll separate.
