Stoves For Bugging Out After SHTF

Single burner propane stove

In the prepping community, there is a lot of focus on stoves for a bug out bag, while stoves for events such as natural disasters are overlooked.

A stove for an individual bug out bag is different than a family sized stove. Do you need a two burner store, one burner stove, propane fuel, liquid fuel, will you be using a lantern? Do you need a stove for a car survival kit or a stove for a cabin off in the woods?

Before we begin, I want to make it clear I am not a big fan of liquid fuel. Whether it is Coleman fuel or gasoline, I feel liquid fuels can be dangerous in certain situations. Then there is the spilling issue with liquid fuel and fumes. However, Coleman fuel is more efficient than propane. Coleman says a gallon of liquid fuel is equal to something like 4 1/2 one pound cylinders of propane.

Everything mentioned in this article is for reference only. During the course of this article certain brand names and models are mentioned, this is not an endorsement. It is up to the reader to make the final decision on what is best for them and their family.

In this article we talk about several different types of stoves:

  • Family size
  • Liquid fuel
  • Propane
  • Blended fuel
