SirBrownie, I have not tried out the stove but i do think the hole should be enough, and the graphic is mine. Do not use styrofoam egg cartons or foam because
I was told
That it is dangerous to burn

"graphic is mine"

Google " oxygen heat fuel" and give use all a better explanation. And seriously you haven't tried your own instructable?

This is a pretty simple version of a can stove! Is this one hole enough to provide enough oxygen for the oxidation process?

And did you make the graphic explaining the "ingredients" for fire yourself or did you copy it from somewhere? If so, please name your sources.

If you are using foam and egg cartons as fuel I wouldn't be making marshmallows on it, and avoid breathing any of the smoke and or fumes that it is emitting.
