We got a bit of rain on our recent backpack trip, but were lucky in that when we were cooking, it was dry enough for the pocket rocket stove we packed in. No fires allowed where we camped anyway (Forest Service rule), but we don't do fires anyway, so, no trouble for us.
Sounds like you had a good trip despite the rain? Sorry the dinner wasn't a hit, make a note for next time, right?
