Re: safe cooking
I could never get a ROLLING boil on my pop down alcohol wick stove...a nice simmer yes...but I could barely do so on a propane range
not a force 5 but some cheap 3 burner oven combo
in any case it was fine for coco, coffee, ramen any canned soup...etc
there are tricks to make any stove and any fuel be hotter for example
on any open flame burner by making a shield out of copper preffereably that tightly surrounds the base of the pot or pan you increase the heat a lot, especially since wind and or cold air will not push away the flames
they sell kits for example for paella cooking tripods when used out in fields and this keeps the flames going nicely
just a thought for those of you with "low" btu burners...
same for ovens
by reducing the size of the inside area with heat resistant material or even using thin flat bricks as a hot plate you can mantain a much better heat and steady temp as well as decrease fuel consumption
