Thnx. Have you tried the Esbit-on-the-bottom approach? Does that work pretty good?

Alcohol is far more available on the AT than are Esbit tabs, in my experience.
I have the Firelite wing stove, nice little stove.
Most pepsi-can style alcohol stoves can burn Esbit too -- just turn them over. (This assumes a separate pot stand.)

For some years now, I've been using an alcohol stove. I'm a bit concerned about the availability of alcohol, and have started thinking about carrying an Esbit stove as a back up. Not so thrilled about carrying two stoves, but then again, not crazy about running out of fuel either. Anyone have an Esbit stove that they like? I'm looking at the Firelight Wing (*very* light at 0.38 oz). Or have any thoughts about carrying two stoves?
