Curious that this thread topic came up. I was just tonite looking across the Web for kero stoves. I am/was considering it as an alternative to alcohol, mostly to maintain similarities in fuels aboard, ie: diesel for the engine and K-1 for the lighting and stove. K-1 in a pinch in the engine, too
I use propane here at home and have no fear of it, per se; but it does pose some hazards other fuels don't. I'm not familiar with the pressurized alky stoves; just the little brass Swedish surplus wick types. I know they work 'n all; but trying to cook a square meal on one is NOT my idea of culinary fun!
