A backpacking stove gives off no smoke, although some of them are kind of loud and, of course, it requires fuel. MREs require no cooking. (M)eal,

territory during the F&I war. They didn't have MREs and only had fire as a means to cook. They built cooking/warming fires in holes they dug only at
night and only in deep cover. You can learn a lot about surviving with little gear by reading about 18th century hunters, trappers, scouts, etc.
They were the original ultralight backpackers!
