If you have a white gas camping stove, converted to propane, try cooking your fried rice on that, using a big, cast-iron frying pan. Heat it till smoking hot, have your rice ingredients ready, put your bacon fat in the heated pan, let melt, add your rice and continue on. This, for me, had made the most delicious, toasty-flavored rice; it has that certain "something" that I had been getting in good chinese/oriental restaurants, but had been unable to achieve at home. Wonderful--the super high heat does it!

During the summer we keep a propane-fueled camp stove on our patio to avoid heating up the house. I guess you would have to call this set-up our summer kitchen.
