<p>You had my attention at GRILLED CHEESE! This is great. I'll be using it this spring when I'm RVing in South Fork Colorado. </p>
<p>This has SUCH A GREAT DIY APPEAL!</p><p>I can see the possibility of storing a few of the fuel discs inside this stove can while it's being carried in a backpack. Very nice.</p>
<p>As part of a survival weekend <br>our scouts made these (- fuel / paraffin), hobo stoves.</p><p>#10 can provides a larger / better cooking surface.</p><p>Context was storm destroyed all your gear improvise shelter <br>cooking and food. </p><p>Fished, filtered / boiled water, made stoves shelter and <br>equipment with what was around <br>(seeded some equipment, cans plastic bottles, plastic sheets, stuff that would <br>be around after a storm). </p><p>I don't do car camping!</p><p>Good one</p>
