All of these type of wood burners create a lot of soot on the burner and your pots, no problem really just find a way to isolate them from the rest of your pack. I would think outside your panniers or trailer bag in their own bag or box, bungee corded down. May need to be something waterproof / resistant so that a rain will not wash all that soot all over the outside of your stuff. If you can isolate your cooking gear this way, there would be no need to clean the soot off each time.
Coat the outside of the pot with liquid dish detergent and allow to dry...the soot will wash right off when the time comes (old boy scout trick )

I drag a kelly kettle around with me on my rambles on my Raleigh Superbe it works great in my part of the country for a quick brew up of hot tea on a chilly day.

Yep...that is the way I do it, I may not even wait for the first park...just get on the road then find a convenient place. I have gone as far as a few hundred feet to an over pass and set up to take my morning break under it out of the weather
