I'll admit that the carbon footprint of your cooking method while camping is interesting, but I don't see how it makes much difference. If one cooking method makes twice as much pollution as another, that doesn't necessarily mean it's unthinkably dirty. There is so much we do in ordinary life that makes more pollution. Perhaps the fact that bike camping is something we don't do often is the reason we're thinking about the differences. If you live in a city or suburb, chances are you have a central heating system in your home, and that uses a whole lot of fuel, probably fossil fuel.
