Both types of stoves have the potential for an accident if they are used in a state of disrepair. So as far as safety I don't see much difference. Both types of fuel are dangerous if mishandled.

I'd never used a camp stove until I bought one last year. Something about cooking over a campfire just appealed to me. Wet firewood on occaision made me realize that I needed a "plan B". I appraoched buying a campstove the with the same criteria that I use when buying any piece of camping equipment; simpler is usually better, and name brands get their name for a reason. For propane ("and propane accessories", as Hank Hill would say) Coleman is the name, and their tried and true two, burner stove is as simple as they come. I expect many years of service from it.

Of course, then there is the low-tech approach. A friend made several alcohol burning stoves out of aluminum beer cans. Getting the materials is the best part.:big_smile: :big_smile: The things work well and cost nothing if you don't consider the cost of the beer. Teetotalers could use soda cans.

Well, I got me a Coleman dual burner. A good freind of mine had one in his garage, and he told me for $15 and a six pack of barley pops I could have it. So, I went over with said beverages and cash. This stove is brand new. My buddy tells me he used it three times and bought his family a fifth wheel trailer.
Thanks to all of you for the advice, and I can always use more of it!

I have a single-burner, generic butane stove. The cartridges are about the size of a paint spray can, so each holds about enough fuel to cook a simple dinner for two.
What is nice about it is that you can use it on the table on those days that Mother Nature decides she doesn't like high tension lines. :smile2:

We have a Coleman propane two-burner that we've been using for years. We even used it inside from August to about Christmas after my son set the kitchen on fire. I bought a brand-new, off-brand one burner propane stove for $1.50 at a thrift store. I also have 3 propane lanterns that I picked up at yard sales--the most expensive one was $2 and it was brand new.
I had a bunch of white gas lanterns that I enjoyed screwing around with, but when I moved to Virginia, the movers wouldn't take them. So, I'm a propane guy now.

I've got a Coleman two burner, coleman fuel, that I've used for years both cooking and melting lead. Still works good.
