Pre oak and heat works just fine for most backpacker meals that I have ever 
used. I don't ever bring "normal food" that needs to be cooked on a 
backpacking trip.

I will generally carry overall less weight because I will only carry the 
fuel I need, not whatever is left in the canister, and maybe an extra 
canister 'cause I'm not sure how much fuels is left in the one I have.......

The fuel is often the heavy stuff, not the stove.
