Wow...I was not aware Manchester came out with a 1# refillable canister. I have one of those adapters that allow you to refill one of the disposables from a 20# bottle, but it's a PITA to use and the valves sometimes leak. I stopped using it.

Never heard of them, if I ever empty the half dozen bottles we have I'll look into it. Good to know.

As the thread title suggests, the original question specifically included a camp stove (as well as a grill, a.k.a. BBQ).

"Grill, a.k.a. BBQ."

Now stop that Brian.

You know some reactionary Texan (like me) isn't gonna let that pass.

I couldn't help it... we're talking about what everyone seems to agree can be called a "grill", but the original post specifically said "BBQ". Not passing any judgements here

Anything with a grill on it, and flame/coals heating it, meant to cook outdoors, has always been referred to as a BBQ by everyone I know, except for some in the southern US.

A kayak is a canoe, but a canoe isn't a kayak.

No no no no. You do not want to offend the canoeing and kayaking crowds. A kayak is a kayak, not a canoe. A canoe is a canoe, not a kayak. Very different animals. Although some people do mix them up. We should stick with grills and bbq's. The terminology is much simpler.

In fact a kayak is a canoe.
I have the book, "The Canoe" by Kenneth Roberts and Philip Shackleton.
First chapter is "What is a Canoe?"
"In its original sense the word canoe simple means boat. It comes from the language of the Arawak people and was used to denote the vessel they built and used on the waters of the West Indies".
It goes on, but I'm not going to.
The hardcover 10"X12" book, published in 1983, is 280 pages on the history of the canoe. Full of colour and black and white illustrations. ISBN 0-7715-9582-4
