I use unpressurized alcohol. It is simple and reliable and clean.

Burning wax results in a lot of unburned carbon, similar to a pine wood campfire. Makes a mess of your pans, requiring a lot of labor to clean them. If the fire were vented through the cabin roof, potential for sooting up the sails is there.

Not for me.
