Yeah! I agree, the windburner is awesome, but also amazingly heavy. I got a pocket rocket deluxe (the new deluxe has a cupped burner shape that shelters flame from wind) a year or two ago, and I think haven’t used my windburner since? I have a stove board (3mm plywood with reflective metal tape and elastic cord, see pic), and use a many-layered piece of folded aluminum foil as heat reflector + wind break (see pic). I’m sure if I was absolutely forced to boil water for survival on an exposed ridge with high winds the windburner would work better, but honestly that just doesn’t happen much. If I’m melting snow, at the very least, I can dig down a foot (or three) and get out of the wind, or more practically, remember to melt snow before hitting the ridge. And even an unmodified pocket rocket deluxe is much, much more wind resistant than, for instance, the original jet boil (which was terrible, anything above a whisper of wind and it seemed like it was just pumping unburned gas into the air).
Also, the folded foil is _ amazingly _ effective at reflecting the right amount of heat back onto the cannister to let you use it below freezing. The stove board (and maybe reflector) are ideas I got from the backpackinglight forums, they have their stove systems dialed in there. And that’s a toaks titanium pot, I use a 500ml by myself, or a 900ml with others. The small one is slow/annoying to melt snow, but also makes for a fantastically small and compact stove setup.
