    i love that picture of the taron 2 in the background,but with the #1 recommendation of a cast iron skillet for cooking a sunrise series tent would have been a more applicable headline picture.P.S.the taron series is the most substantive 3 season lightweight backpacking tent offerings by eureka ever.

    im dying to know how you bring natural gas camping,im only aware of propane and the propane n-butane and/or iso-butane combinations.i think i previously posted this question with no response.im not aware of commercially available natural gas compressors to bottle natural gas,or the cooking apparatus that uses natural gas at any specified pressure.natural gas pressure regulators arent available commercially they are for residential/commercial/industrial distribution purposes.

    “a propane or gas stove”is the equivalent of”a gasoline or internal combustion engine”,propane is a gas to the same extent as a gasoline engine is an internal combustion engine.jack,i think you dont differentiate LNG and LPG.NOBODY uses LNG camping,everybody that uses a gas camping has LPG as part of the composition whether it is propane or propane,n-butane and/or iso-butane mix or butane.

    Cooking Rule #1
    The cook’s job is to watch everything being cooked. Until you can prepare food without burning a pot, and without burning food, you aren’t a cook, you’re a food waster.

    Cooking Rule #2
    Someone else can wash the dishes, but the cook must clean all the pots and pans, and replace them if damaged. Know your tools and how hot your pan is before adding food.

    Cooking Rule #3
    Anything that can burn is fuel. Ounce for ounce, white gasoline has a higher heat output than charcoal, wood, propane or butane. Properly used, it produces fewer hydrocarbons than any of them.

    Cooking Rule #4
    Mass has a cost. Whether car camping or backpacking, the more your gear weighs, the more you must pay to transport it.

    If you don’t mind the extra fuel for transporting and heating 10-15# of metal, cast iron may be OK for car camping, but not for backpacking. One inexpensive, thin, diffusing panel can protect many different thin camping pans from scorching. Hard anodized aluminum (NOT non-stick) or titanium are better camping alternatives to stainless steel than cast iron, and plates of these metals can be used as cook and serve fry pans.
