Mastering the Trail: Essential Backpacking Cooking Gear Guide



Building your hiking kitchen? Are you looking to upgrade your current setup? We’re going to share some of our Favorite backpacking cooking gear in this article. When we’re backpacking, we usually concentrate on two things: the magnificent countryside and what we’re going to eat for supper!

While tents and backpacks get the most attention in backpacking gear recommendations, we wanted to take a minute to highlight our Favorite backpacking cooking gear since it provides us with so much joy on the road! This article contains our top backpacking cooking equipment suggestions we recommend for the trip. Of course, we know that there’s more to hiking than just the food, so check out our backpacking checklist for the rest of our gear recommendations.

Gas Stoves – What to look for

Lightweight, gas canister stoves are by far the most popular stoves used on a long trek or UL trip. They screw into the fuel canister, quickly boil water, and are simple to operate. Canisters are widely available, especially along rural areas of long-distance walks such as the CDT.


Weight should be in the range of 1oz/28g to 4oz/113g, with heavier alternatives having more features and more sturdy pot supports.

Pot Stability

The stronger the pot’s support, the sturdier the pot. The majority of stoves are intended for tiny, backpacking-friendly pots of up to 2 litres.

Efficiency/Boil time

Manufacturers claim short boil times; however, this is with the stove on full blast, which uses more fuel. Running the stove at a lower flow rate is typically more fuel-efficient. Some stoves may be set to increase efficiency in low conditions and at high elevations.
