    I suggest poeple look at a way to cook their food.

    Dutch ovens and charcoal are one really good option. I also bought a Volcano Grill (Google it) makes Dutch oven cooking even more efficient. I went a step beyond and insulated my volcano. I now use very little charcoal compared to when I wasnt using mt volcano. I can cook a pie, with the crust niceLy browned using only 10 charcoals. I can cook two pies using 15 charcoalss. The volcano grill Dutch oven combination function as an oven.

    I also recommend a Caldera cone from trail designs With this I use the Trangia alcohol stove with the provided simmer ring and the Evernew 1.9 liter short pot. The alcohol stove that comes with the Calderia cine isn't as good for cookimg food storage as the Trangia stove. You can't sinner with it and it isn't as efficient as the Trangia when using the simmer ring. If I take 2 cups of dry beans, soak them for a few hours, I can cook these using only 80ml of denatured alcohol with this setup.

    I also recommend looking into rocket wood stoves and wood gas stoves. (Google these).
