Got to a few lessons this week. Here’s my improvised metal cooking implement. Made some pine needle and wintergreen tea too. Check it out
Twig stove from a small coffee can. Used hammer and nails and a pair of pliers.
My "cooking" here is an attempt at charring various natural materials.
I made a gasifier stove using the instructions at Make Magazine. Didn’t have a drill so I used a cheap awl and some pliers to make the necessary holes.
Works well though the run time is only about 9 to 10 minutes. Will be thinking about scaling this up.
I made an alcohol stove from two aluminum beer bottles, a pot stand from an old metal clothes hanger and a bush pot from a tomato can and a piece of copper wire for the bail.
Took my paper towel holder:
Flipped it upside down, jammed it in the ground, and now it's a fire trivet and heating up my chili mac!
You better hope the Mrs. doesn't catch you doing that!!
