All Titanium Backpacking Grill and Stove Cook Kit


It's another backpacking gear post - featuring a cook kit that could cover all my trail cooking needs.

It's not the lightest cook kit on the trail, but it's all titanium, and I know it will do steak and potatoes with all the sides.  I'll show you the steak and potatoes in a bit.

 The components of this cook kit are as follows;

- Snow Peak Titanium Mini Solo Cookset
- Snow Peak 450 Titanium Mug
- Four Dog Stoves Titanium Wind Screen for the Snow Peak Trek 700
- Lawson Outdoor Equipment Titanium Tent Stakes





Here is the whole kit and kaboodle weighing in at 15 and 3/4 ounces (448 grams).











Using the Evernew Titanium Alcohol Stove, Four Dog Stoves Titanium Wind Screen and Lawson Outdoor Equipment Titanium Tent Stakes, I boiled two cups of water in 5 minutes 44 seconds, with one ounce of Heet denatured alcohol. (Total burn time was 6 minutes and 40 seconds - indoors - garage).





Sometime this backpacking season, I'll use the Four Dog Stoves Wind Screen and Vargo Titanium Hexagon Wood Stove as a grill.










As stated earlier, the Vargo Titanium Hexagon Wood Stove will grill steak...
