When I was still a Scout Master our Troop built can stoves. They are great for overnighters that the Scouts will be preparing individual meals.

Great post....Im overseas in china working and bought all the stuff to make a couple of the stoves, though i barely got mine to boil the water, best alcohol i found was 96%, may have been the reason, i also couldnt come up with a windscrene of any type. Was a neat project though that passed the time on one of my days off, my chinese crew watched me build this and never figured out what it was until i placed the pot of water on it....it blew their mind! This post sparked my intrest in it and i looked up other projects on youtube to do.....thanks for the idea!

Also couldnt find any fiberglass to pack inside mine, you guys have an idea of something else i can put in there to use as a wick???? Fiberglass is hard to find in a country that doesnt insulate a damn thing, all the homes here built out of concrete, no use for fiberglass that i can find.

In Boy Scouts we made one with a potted meat can, cardboard and parrifin. Then we had to cook on it.

What you do is cut the cardboard the depth of the can, roll it up real tight to fit inside the can, and pour melted parrifin over it.

Get 2 small logs a little taller than the can to put your pot on. Put the can between the logs, light it and start cooking. Worked great for heating up canned food.
