Gas Stoves in Cold Weather

Stove operation in cold weather. 

Hikin_Jim has another excellent post about stoves in the backcountry.  This post is about cold weather operation.  He as some great suggestions.

"Here’s a common question:  “It’s cold; will my gas stove work OK?”  Well, it depends.  The most common gas stove out there is the “upright” canister stove.  This is the type of gas stove that screws directly into the top of a standard threaded gas canister.  Common examples of upright canister stoves would include the MSR Pocket Rocket, the Optimus Crux, and the Jetboil PCS."
