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.
