I know this is possibly the wrong place to ask this...given camp ovens aren't really hiking kit but anyway:

Any recommendations on light weight hiking stoves, something like the JetBoil or Trangia ones?

Mostly for boiling water for a brew or heating precooked meals while on the go on daytrips.  (Both vehicle and backpack).

Check out the photo.
I've used them with the screw on disposable canister of propane or butane. (can't remember)
Also used hexamine blocks with the stove the army uses.
Both have served me well, long time ago.
Haven't done it in 15 plus years.

Like I said, may be a bit left field for this particular forum  Smiley

I used to really dislike hexy stoves. Smelly and the blocks would leave kero like stuff and wax all over every thing  Smiley

I think I'll need to head to Paddy Pallin or similar and have a look at what the new ones look like.  They certainly aren't cheap...

I always check out what is available on eBay, it also gives you an idea on prices too. Like you I hate Hexamine although it is quick and easy.
 

When I die I hope my missus doesn't sell my camp ovens  for what I told her I paid for them. pd
