Best Camping Stoves

Camping stoves are a must-have for any outdoor enthusiast. These stoves allow campers to enjoy hot meals, no matter where they are. For those who take their pets along for the journey, camping stoves also allow them to have hot meals when all-natural diets are being adhered to. Compact and easy to take along, camping stoves are a smart investment for anyone who enjoys spending time in the great outdoors.

Destin Benoit, former Special Forces Canine Handler and current SOC Canine Handler states, “When camping, fishing, or simply enjoying the outdoors with your pet, a camping stove is a great piece of equipment to have. For dogs who are fed all-natural diets of meats and vegetables, these stoves offer a safer alternative to campfires for cooking and keeping meals hot and ready to go.”

How to Find The Best Camping Stoves For Your dog


Camping is always a fun activity to relax your mind, have fun with friends, and connect with nature. If you’re planning to have a backpacking trip that will last for days, your meals should be prepared to avoid any problems. While snacking on bars and dry foods might be ideal, these are not enough to help you power through the day and night. You should invest in a camping stove to help you in preparing meals so you will have the full camping experience.

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Camping Stove

  •       Boiling Time and Wind Resistance

If you’re going to be cooking on your camping trips, more often than not, it involves boiling water because this is the easiest and fastest way to cook food. Simmering capability and wind resistance are important considerations in outdoor cooking that are often ignored. When choosing a camping stove, we recommend checking the BTUs because this indicates the amount of energy required to heat one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. However, higher BTUs does not mean that it can boil water fast. You should also consider getting a stove with a windscreen or a burner with a wide diameter for faster boiling and more efficient cooking.

  •       Fuel Type

Camping and backpacking stoves rely mostly on liquid fuel, butane, and propane. Liquid fuels are the most ideal choice if you’re camping in colder regions, but it is very difficult to prepare and refill. Butane tanks can be easily set up for quick and minimal cooking, but these do not perform well in a cold climate. We recommend the use of propane tanks because these are cheaper, more readily available, and easier to use than most fuels. If you choose a propane tank, you should get the refillable twenty pound tank with an adapter and hose for an easier and more sustainable cooking.

  •       Ignition Type

Most camp stoves have ignition types that require you to light it up manually with an external flame source such as matches and lighters. However, there are also stoves that use a pressurized electric charge or piezoelectricity to spark ignition using a button or a lever. We recommend manually operated ignition because Piezo igniters are more expensive and prone to wearing out over time.
