Methylated spirits (or ‘meths’) is a fuel created by mixing two alcohols – methanol and ethanol (the latter is the alcohol we know in alcoholic drinks). In America it is known as ‘denatured alcohol’ because the methanol is added to make the ethanol unpalatable and the resulting spirit poisonous.
It burns easily, so the simplest way of cooking at camp is to take a small metal container, add methylated spirits, suspend a cooking pot over it and light the methylated spirits.
Ultralight camping stoves, like those Trangia offer, often use methylated spirits because it is easy to transport.
