Some, if not all of you, have at some time come across a can stove. Often called a beer can or soda can stove. The concept is simple. You take two aluminum cans cut the bottoms of off both, cut the center out of one of the bottoms and the side out of one of the cans and place them all together. First is the solid bottom can then the side piece next is the bottom piece that has the center cut out. Drill some vent holes add denatured alcohol and voila, you have a .3oz stove! Check out this video to better understand.

I actually was lazy and purchased one from ebay for a few bucks and have been very happy. As mentioned in previous posts I have used it on several occasions and love it. The only real issue that I have is that it must be protected in your pack so as not to get crushed. In this demo the guy uses a Fosters can but I have seen it done with all types of cans. The stove I bought is found here. Additionally I just saw a new titanium stove at REI that is much like the can stove but the price was a bit high and it weighed 3x as much as the can stove I use, however it is indestructible. Don't forget that a wind screen is key. Also understand once you fire the stove up there is no off so practice and know how much fuel you will need prior to ignition. And unless you are competing for the next Darwin Award DO NOT add alcohol to a hot stove!!!
