As long as you have fuel for it.
I still like the one (hobo stove) made from a coffee can. I first saw it in a crafts book for kids when I was about 8 years old. You burn sticks,
leaves, straw, etc in it. Dry fuel is more readily available, usually.
Ditto, but just recently coffee cans are made of cardboard..
I'm holding on to my metal cans just in case. Even the Walmart coffee cans are not of metal...
The can with an old school can popper thingie - the can opener that does the liquid pour punch triangle doohickey - makes easy work for a hobo
IMO, the beer can would be better used to boil water...or render fat. I can make a stove with a dish and a hex-nut with some fabric... No need to get
all fancy with this alcohol stove.
Who carries enough liquid rubbing alcohol to last more than a day anyways? That beer can could be better used IMO.
Edit A S&F - this is cool nonetheless.
