Almost the same situation for me too in re-thinking canister stoves. Did a trip earlier this year and my friends brought along their regular jetboil, it was nice for a group of four to get a couple liters of water heated quickly each morning.
But this past weekend it was just me and my girlfriend, with the fire issue and the need for a liter of water per meal I brought a Pocket Rocket and bigger pot. While we had to deal with making a wind break a couple of times, it was great to cook quickly on the trail. Both days we got up and hiked for awhile, then made coffee and oatmeal, and at night made dinner, then hiked another couple miles, which I really liked.
When solo I didn't care about time to heat water too much, but with the need for larger amounts of hot water, and being able to cook and go has me thinking about a lighter pot and windscreen for the Pocket Rocket, or getting Jetboil SOL. Wish the SOL had a little more volume though.
Will check into the Enertia meals.
