Johan's Favourite Alcohol Stove : One-Can Sideburner (No Pot Stand)
This stove uses only one can and needs no pot stand.
The design transfers a lot of heat into the pot and not around it.
On taller cans, you have plenty of material left from the middle of the can to create some sort of windscreen.
The design can be further refined by adding a proper internal wall and drilling jets. On pressurised topburner can stoves, I usually make 24 jets in a 2:1 pattern, using a drill with a sewing needle as a bit.
This is not my design, I wish it was. It is based on the
Garlington YACC Stove ("Yet Another Coke Can Stove").
Here is my way of making it.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
Drinks can (I like Dr Pepper)
Stack of coins (an even number) taped together to measure 1.5 inches tall [UK 2p x 20]
Small, sharp scissors
Cutting mat or graph paper with large grid
Large flat blade screwdriver
