When people go camping, they very rarely want to rough it and eat cold food, nuts, or whatever might be around. Even if campers decide to feed themselves from whatever nature provides, then they will usually catch fish, or hunt for game. Both of these food sources need to be cooked. But it is more common for people to decide to bring a cooler with food items, or with non-refrigerated food items such as potatoes, or food items that can be boiled in water. People like to drink tea and coffee in cold climates. None of these can be prepared without a camp stove burner.
A camp stove burner comes in a variety of sizes, and they will require a different variety of fuel sources. The type of fuel source, and the size will depend upon the camper, and how they choose to travel. For example, if a camper decides to travel to their campsite on foot and hike, then it’s very important to the camper when they are hiking that they keep their load as small as possible. This means that they will want to carry a small, one burner stove. These tend to fit inside of the camping bag. They only require a small canister of propane.
On the other hand, if campers are traveling via a RV, or a car, then they can carry a larger stove. They will want to carry a two burner camp stove burner. These stoves are a lot heavier, and they require a larger canister of fuel. They can be used with propane, but some people like to use fuel such as pure white gasoline. Some people even use diesel, or kerosene. It should be said that propane burns cleaner, and it won’t impart fumes into one’s food, or give the campers a headache. However, some people like the heat that other fuel sources provide.
