Make a simple stove burner yourself

Make different sizes with 5.5oz juice cans, Fosters cans, etc.

It takes about ten minutes to build one.

One tip, smaller jet holes develop more pressure and a hotter flame.

I piss excellence.
only thing i'm curious about is can't using the insulation to absorb the fuel give off really dangerous gasses if it got burnt?

If it got burned then something went wrong. Then it would depend on the insulation. I'm wondering why cotton balls wouldn't be better. Maybe it's because of the fire retardant in household insulation.

:rolleyes:
Get out your propane torch and try to burn some fiber glass insulation.
Then try to burn some cotton balls.

Only downside is it would be hard to control the heat. Bring a couple cans and some fire pit popcorn containers with some smores and you could have a nice little trail side snack.

I see one really big problem with this idea...most of us will be using beer cans and I can guarentee that they won't be from a can that was full so I could see someone getting seriously injured by fire making one :D
