The pressure cooker doesn't know or care how you're heating it... CNG, butane, propane, charcoal, open wood fire, alcohol or diesel all would work. You will have to just figure out what the main difference between how fast the propane heats the pressure cooker to full pressure and how fast the alcohol does it..and adjust your times accordingly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

A good small cooker is the Magefesa 010PPRAPL32 Practika Plus Stainless Steel 3.3 Qt. one. It is made in Spain and has an aluminium insert in the base for better heat distribution. Can be found on Amazon. Buy a spare seal as well asyou will not find one in your local hardware store.

Ideal size for 2 people.

I ADORE pressure cookers.

I have four of them.

The lightweight pressure cooker is by far my most used pressure cooker.

The lightweight pressure cooker heats up very quickly on a small camp stove, and I like the fact that it uses a weight on top to control the pressure, though it also has a second safety device on it to relieve pressure if something goes wrong.

Originally I bought a small pressure cooker because I wanted to use it camping. Using a pressure cooker lets you cook "hard to cook" things like dried beans and lentils, and other dried foods, all of which are perfect for camping because they are lightweight (no water), nutritious, store for long periods of time, etc. Over time I have become so happy with my pressure cookers that I do not just use them for camping now, I actually prefer to cook in them (when a microwave isn't available), I use them all the time now.
