    Default Esbit/Alchohol Stove Set-up pics

    I came up with this little set-up trying to make a lightweight and simple cooker for making joe in the field. I have had both stoves for years and used them separately with success. But together I was able to boil water in under 5 mins. in my glacier cup. The esbit acted as a stand and a windscreen. Plus it give me the option of burning esbit or twigs (I have done both in the past). There are many stove options out there but I re-purposed what I had instead of buying something new.

    This set-ups going in my day bag.

    I've been thinking the Esbit or East German stove will be my next stove purchase!

    Personally, I like the East German stove because it is smaller and seems to be made of better steel.

    BTW, very ccol idea Panzer.

    I have an Emberlit Mini Ti that I acquired an esbit tray for, from a guy over on the Hammockforum.net website. He goes by Caribou Bentspoke, and not sure he still sells them or not. I can also place a small alcohol burner on the tray. I usually use the Emberlit as a wood burner, like it's ment to be...but having the esbit or alcohol as a fallback is nice.

    I am still trying to figure out the best way to use my trangia in Emberlit, but the other little alcohol burner does fine as well.

    Nice setup Panzer. I'm a fan of the versatile folding Esbit stove, too. I'm experimenting with making an alky burner out of a small shoe polish tin that fits inside the Esbit stove when it's folded up. Handy concept, potentially. I think my first attempt had too many burn holes, however, and it burned a bit too fast.

    I've experimented with different alky burners and have come to prefer non-jetted ones. The single column of flame seems to work better with smaller vessels like canteen cups.





    I recently acquired a "Large" Esbit stove...it's bigger than the Coghlan's version and stores a entire box of 12 tablets.

    maybe driling two small holes on each side and using metal dowels would work great idea though has me thinking or you could make two diff sizes of coat hangers and drill small holes in a small metal block

    I have both. The east german is not as stable as the esbit stove and it rusts.
