Every backpacker has a different philosophy for cooking in the backcountry.

Some people are just looking for sustenance in a warm dinner — a meal heavy on calories, but light on carry weight. Others take pride in donning their chef’s hats and whipping up a gourmet meal in the wilderness. And, of course, there are those who fall somewhere in between.

Read this Retail College chapter to determine the right type of backcountry stove and cookware for your customers, including going over different stove fuels, performance, capacity support and ease-of-use.

A printed version of this digital flipbook (click right) was mailed to more than 1,000 specialty retail shops in February and it is one in a series of special Retail College How To Sell chapters the SNEWS team produces.

If you would like your store’s name added to our mailing list to receive future training chapters, or if you are a manufacturer and would like to find out how you can work with SNEWS in producing a future “How To Sell” guide, contact our sales and marketing director, Elizabeth Averbeck at [email protected].
