Alcohol Stoves

Alcohol stoves for hikers. Solid, rugged and reliable for your ultralight backpacking backwoods adventure.

  • Light weight. Our Etowah II stove kit with  pot stand, outer burner, economizer burner, 3 1/2" x 24" windscreen, and 4 oz fuel bottle is less than half the weight of canister and white gas stoves. Light to pack in. An excellent choice for your bug out bag.
  • Burns quietly. Hear the outdoors you came to enjoy instead of the hiss of white gas or propane. Zero Noise pollution.
  • Inexpensive. Less than a third of the cost of other heavier options.
  • Simple to use. No pumping. No priming. Set the pot stand on top, add fuel and light. Use windscreen if needed. Easy peasy.
  • Many sources for fuel. You can find Denatured Alcohol at any hardware store, Home Depot, Lowes and other stores. Methanol (HEET) is available just about anywhere that sales gasoline or car parts.
  • Fuel consider to be less hazardous to carry than white gas.

Etowah manufactures two alcohol stoves. The Etowah II and the EO Solid Fuel Stove with Alcohol Burner.
