Introduction: Easy Soda Can Camping Stove

The soda can camping stove. It's been done hundreds of times but this is my take. For true backpackers, it's the lightest stove you can get, and works great for a weekend trip solo or with a friend. I like it for heating cans of soup and chili right in the can out the back of my car or on picnics. It only takes about an hour, and it's free! So watch the video and let me know if you have any questions!

    what are the mesurments in the cans when you cut them?

    one question, do you have to keep changing out the lint or is it just one time?

    Great tips delno, it's truly easy and every backpacker can do it. Thanks

    There are four holes in the center of the can (2:57 in the video). When the stove is sitting on a flat surface, just pour the alcohol into the depression and let it drain into the stove through those holes. Hope this helps!

    That's fiberglass insulation. Don't tell my parents I grabbed a bit out of their attic. I'm sure you could find it at any home improvement store.
