    isn't there a coating on the inside of the can too? not sure if it matters.

    Could it work with an alcohol stove?

    to it doesnt burn off and make fumes, and cover the can in dirty burnt plastic and carbon. oddly enough that very thin layer of paint is very obnoxious when it boils and burns off. And as logic would have it, breathing in plastic fumes is bad.

    an improvement upod this idea would be to use alcohol or spirits , for a less localized source of heat (spreads about). you know what, i might make one now and post a picture to show you lot what im on about.

    absolutely LOVE this idea!!! Going winter camping with the Scouts this weekend, and they've made their tuna-can-stoves, so I'm going to "one up them" with fresh popcorn!!! Post any other new projects you come with!!!
