Some wrote earlier that bottle propane is useless in freezing weather.

I carry a single burner Coleman stove that screws on the top of a propane cylinder. It is the cheap $25 kind you buy at Walmart. I have carried it many places - including the Winter Romp. It has worked fine - even in the low single digit Romp temperatures. Renching and others on here have enjoyed a hot cuppa at lunch in the Maine woods from this propane fueled item and can vouch for my story.

All of that said - a 2 burner white gas or propane Coleman stove is the standard that all others are measured against.

I agree with Chris on compressed gas stoves not working at low temps. I learned that the hard way when it was 5F and my jetboil was not interested in working.

That said, 2 years ago camping out in Colorado. I had a borrowed propane two burner. Even though we were constantly concerned with running out of propane, we never really did. Lowest used temps was like, 55F. Worked great.

One thing with the coleman stoves, get some packing material to put between all of the bits. Helps prevent rattles.

Partner steel will make a custom length hose for you for something like $40. I have a 10 footer i believe in addition to stock one.

$65 with a coupon I bought a Coleman Triton. If it dies I'll get a Partner Stove.

A buddy got me very drunk and made me buy a dual burner Partner Stove. I was was the best thing I've ever bought while intoxicated. Boils 1 liter of water a minute no problem. IIRC it was $225 shipped.

I just got a new 16" Partner Steel stove - was trying to decide between the 16" and 18" versions and learned that the burner spacing was the same on both stoves - there is just an extra inch at each end on the 18" to help support bigger pots. Since its usually just me cooking with an 8" frying pan and a 1 quart backpacking pot the 16" is fine. I actually tried it with a 10" skillet too and there is plenty of room for that. Best part is that the stove will fit in a wolf box along with all of the pots and pans which condenses my load a bit. The old Coleman 22" will go back in the basement and I'll have some more room in the D-90.
