    Post Probably The Best Home Made Soda Can Bug Out Bag Alcohol Stove

    This is not my video but, I found this one on YouTube. I have "built" a couple of other ones but, not this particular one yet.
    This one is a tiny bit more complicated to build than some of the other ones but, it seems to be the cats ass with regard to its actual simplicity of use.
    These tiny little "pop can" jet alcohol burners are great because you can actually use them hundreds of times and they weigh next to nothing.
    They just can't be beat for boiling up that cup or two of water for preparing dehydrated pouch meals or making a cup of tea or instant coffee & boiled water purification.
    Think about making one when you have some free time and feel like puttering around.

    See It In Use First....then you'll want to build one.
    The burner jets "kick in" at about 1:37

    Yep, been using that one for a long time.

    Most of the Boyscouts around here are familiar with that trick.

    I have made several different soda can burners in the past.
    This design seems to be better than most of the others.
    Thanks, will have to try it.

    Taught my son a little trick ... On his very first camp out with the Boy Scouts it rained and no one could get a fire going. He pulled out some 0000 steel-wool and a 9v battery and after all the laughing and jokes died down he started a fire

    Not only were all the veteran and rookie scouts amazed but so were all the other adult leaders. He quickly became very popular

    Yes, that works very well.

    Also check out The White Box Stove on Ebay...if you don't want to bother making an Alchohol Stove yerself. They work very well.

    I'd build one, but I have one of these for backpacking. There's a lot to love about alcohol. Mainly, there is no noise. Which is a plus when you are out enjoying the woods. The main drawback though is they are a bit slower. With the commercial ones you get a dampner to control the flame more. I've used mine to back pizza and bread, make apple crisp, and seen someone make a quiche on it.

    There is also NO smoke- which could be very important if one is trying to be surreptitious.

    Our scout troop completed a 5 day, 50 mile hike last summer and most of the scouts used the "soda can", or "penny stove" for their cooking needs. Mostly boiling water for freeze dried meals.

    Cheap, easy, and effective. If you loose or damage it - 2 pop cans and you're back in business.

    I also have the VARGO Triad Titanium alcohol stove. I really like it so much that I'm going to buy another one for my little Bro.
    It's really not necessary to prime it from underneath. It will self prime.
    You can flip it over and also use the flat bottom for solid fuel like wetfire and trioxane or heximine tabs.

    Not my video but it's a short one to show the nice blue flame pattern.
