On our sailboat we use an alcohol stove and can adjust the flame size. On "high" it runs dry (it uses a canister with a wick) in ~35 minutes. The canister can't be refilled until it cools so you must use 35 minute meals.

Alan, What kind of stove is that? And where can I get one? What kind of 35 minute meals do you make?

It is an Origo that was, I believe, original equipment on our 1975 Swedish boat. Modern equivalents probably are Origo 3000 | Fisheries Supply or MARINE AIR Origo 3000 Alcohol Stove | West Marine . Perhaps at a nautical junkyard you might find one used. If you should chose to get something like this DO NOT fill the canister horizontally!!!

A typical meal would be packaged flavored rice (e.g. Zatarain's stuff) with perhaps canned fish unceremoniously (sp?) dumped on top.

Make sure the smell isn't going to bother you. Burning alcohol has an odor that some find objectionable. We had one on our Vega ( a Swedish sailboat) and it always made me seasick. Even at the dock!

Faced with the same question in our Snoozy we use a butane single burner stove when off grid and a single burner induction hot plate when plugged in to shore power. Cast iron pans work great with induction. The better a magnet sticks to a pan bottom the better it will work with induction.

The butane is very convenient, stores compactly and adjusts from very low to very high heat.

Cooking with any flame (as opposed to electric) in a closed up camper will add a lot of humidity to the air. We used the butane even when plugged in the first year but added the induction plate to avoid the humidity issue.
