How Low Can They Go: Testing Multi-Stove/Fuel Performance at Multiple Temperatures

As I try to increase our winter backpacking gear I got curious about cook systems and whether or not I needed something other than a canister stove for frigid temperatures. So I put a fuel canister paired with a BRS stove against a solid fuel stove with hexamine to see how they performed at multiple temperatures.
