When it comes to camping, two primary thing to consider - fire and water.
Is the gas from canister sufficient to cook?
Is the cooking condition suitable, flat ground, and away from wind?
Is the water source nearby or need to be carried for an hour or more?
How much water do you need?
The secondary factors are:
How much energy do you need for the next few hours and to replenish your energy?
What is the convenience of preparing and cooking?
How much time you need to cook and eat, before getting ready to set foot from campsite?
What is the availability of raw materials?
What is your team members's dietary restrictions and how much food the team really needs?
