    Neat little idea.

    Does it not need holes in the side to let air flow through?

    I just notice I didn't mention anything about that. If you look at the bottom right of the tin can I just used a little stick as a lever to control the height of the can for airflow. When I wanted a burst of heat I would just blow down near the stick to stoke the fire.

    Ah, yes, I see.

    You ought to edit your text to say that.
