Does anyone have a recommendation on a decent lightweight camp stove that doesn't cost $80 bucks?

I have had one of those coleman single burner propane stoves that mounts on top of the little green bottles for years, survived through three 9 week long camping trips in the desert so I think its pretty decent (they run 20-30 bucks last time I checked). I also have one of those little infra-red heater/stove combo units that they sell at bimart, nice for when the wife comes camping with me cause she can warm her hands up on it in the morning before the fire gets going, but they are a bit more expensive if I remember right.

The little MR. Heater would prolly work. Huh, just looked at a newer 1 from ebay for $90??? You should be able to find an older one with just the wire/aluminum fixture around it. I still have 1 somewhere and Ive done breakfast on it. Gotta prop it up with rocks and stuff but it`ll do, and it`s light.

I don't think I did. I'm kind of hesitant to order from ebay so I googled it. Not sure if I looked at the same one or not.

I saw one ta BI-Mart for 36$ that was just a single burner about 6" round with a tube going to the tank so the burner sits flat. I dont know how heavy it was but I liked how stable it looked. I would be afraid of knocking over one of those that screws onto a tank. Seems a little heavier stove instead extra food would be the way to go.

Yeah, I have one of those and I'm thinking I'm just gonna use it. I want to pack as light as I can for a 7 mile hike. That doesn't sound very far but I'm out of shape. What's a couple more pounds? lol
