I'm sure if you're cooking it in a small pot on a pocket rocket, and not in a jetboil, no one needs to know! ;) Anyway, its a different bigger jetboil you can win I suppose.
It's a good idea for a competition though, because cooking in jeboil is to be honest, a total hassle. They have some recipes on their website but they all seem to involve strange American brand name products that I don't know and can't buy, and all the amounts are in bloody cups! What's a cup? I hope everyone who enters this only gives measurements in milliliters and only uses things you can buy in the UK! :)
What Toby said but..... no you don't have to own a Jetboil to enter, get creative.
What tasty meals can you come up with just having one pot, or using the multiple cooking pan combos?
1 cup U.S = 275ml
As Toby says, this is a UK comp, for a UK Jetboil recipe book, so use UK available food and measurements.
fl oz it is....
just use a fraction of a peck...
No, it will be beaten by my lukewarm gritty melted snow with last night's tea bag at the bottom of it, served in a cup-o-soup encrusted mug, and consumed with numb hands while trying not to gag.
Bloody hell, things north of the border must be worse than I'd imagined!
> fl oz it is....
9.3 or nearly half a pint in old money.

A bit strange that the Jetboil website now says that the titanium Sol and Sumo stoves should not be used for cooking food or melting snow...!!!!!
(EN) FOR HEATING / BOILING WATER ONLY!
THESE GUIDELINES APPLY TO JETBOIL® SOL®
TITANIUM AND SUMO® TITANIUM COOKWARE ONLY.
If used without care, in certain situations, the aluminum
FluxRing® may overheat, damaging the cup and reducing
the performance of the system.
Use of Sol® TI or SUMO® TI outside these guidelines may void the Jetboil product warranty.
1) BOILING WATER: For fastest performance, use high heat
when boiling liquid water. Follow normal operating instructions.
Adding non-liquids (soup mix, oatmeal, dehydrated meal, etc.) to
water can result in damage to the cup and fins.
2) DO NOT USE TO MELT SNOW OR ICE: Do not use to
melt snow or ice as improper use may cause the cup to overheat
and fins may be damaged.
3) DO NOT COOK SOUPS OR OTHER FOODS: Sol® TI and
SUMO® TI are ideal for fast and fuel efficient water boiling only.
Do not use for cooking food to avoid potential damage to cooking
cup or FluxRing®.
I was surprised myself though had seem some of the blog reports. Melting snow for water was what bought my Ti Sol stove for and it's great. I'd never use it or any other Jetboil for anything other than boiling water!
