Some councils have banned the use of liquid fuel stoves on council-owned
property, but this is not a BSA policy nationwide. I've been told, and I
should confirm it, that our council recently retracted its ban. Personally,
the ban to be oxymoronic since we had to use the same liquid fuel stoves in
practice sessions in council camps as we would later use at Philmont.
