A buddy of mind had one of those kerosene burners back in the '70s.
It required carrying a separate bottle of denatured alcohol to prime. Getting the flame rate right was a tricky business -- there isn't a direct valve to control fuel flow. There is the pump and a pressure relief valve on the filler cap. So if the flames grow too high, you bleed some pressure off.
Too fiddly for me -- during those days I had an Optimus 111B white gas stove that came in a sturdy metal box and had a pump. It was very heavy, but very effective at melting snow.
