We are pretty stuffed into canoes so space is tight. We’ve got 6 full days on the water. It’s to carry the big containers. 2x1lbr’s/day sounds high. My stove is VERY efficient and highly controllable compared to my old Coleman. Plus we can use fire pan grill for some meal cooking like on steak night.1lbers have about 21K of BTUs in them so you're napkin math above is close. The advice on an 11lb or even 5lb tank is the way to go. They're refillable, give you a buffer and aren't that big to store. Plus you can run a blaster or larger device on those unlike the 1lber. 1 gallon of PROPANE is roughly 91k BTUs. Convert tank size to gallons of fuel and go from there. Other factors like air temp and vaporization rate can matter but the larger the tank the less it matters in small appliances like stoves.
