There is one aspect of stove use we haven't considered - legality. In most areas, there are conditions where public access is allowed, but "open campfires" are banned (typically due to dry, fire prone conditions). As I understand it, only stoves with a valve which can shut off the fuel supply to the stove are permissible under these conditions. This bans all or nearly all alcohol stoves, leading one to the choice of canister or liquid. Of course, when conditions are getting that dry, perhaps no fire at all is the best course.

You will probably end up with more than one stove. Resistance is futile.
