    Don't know if you've seen this before, but I think it is a pretty smart and funny innovasion. Light and easy to bring! However, I prefer gas. :)

    There are tons of other methods and designs. You can find them all over on YouTube my favorite is called the super cat. Intense angler has a channel that gives instructions on various designs

    If you ever cook for more than one person, you might need a little more fire power... so to speak.

    Every tool has its place. "only" and "ever" are tools to be used sparingly.

    I carry this in my pack pretty much all the time with either a small bottle of denat ETOH or fuel tablets. I tested it with a heat shield and it can boil a quart of water in about 7 minutes from room temp. This little guy and a space blanket could mean the difference between a miserable bivy, and a not so miserable one. It's really amazing the heat it puts out.

    I used some old RC car nitromethane fuel once that burned great but it left a glob of synthetic lubricant in the stove...
