I've made about a half dozen of these things in different styles. I can't get ANY of them to stay lit. As soon as I put the pot on, it goes out. I've waited and let them get really hot, but doesn't help.
What am I doing wrong?

need's source of air...

without the pot, the air flows in through the top, but with the pot on, you block the flow of air and the fire dies.

try using a tall pot holder and put the stove underneath. the holder should keep the pot up, but allowing the to flow through.
