Hey Cliff, I am lugging a couple of spare GI canteen cups around, just for turning into one of your stoves. You haven't by any chance come up with plans, measurements, etc, to keep me from wasting a cup have you???

Really nice, guys! Clever, inventive, useful, recycled.

But Cliff..... ah..... what does the keyboard do? Do you type the temperature level you want in it, or what?

I hear you. I don't know about SOS soap, but regular soap coating the outside of a cup/pot used over an open fire will allow you to wipe the black soot off with a paper towel...

OBG, bar soap or liquid dish soap? Talk about making my cleanup easier.

For now, an esbit stove and some hd aluminum foil.

It was challenging the first couple of times to kill something in the field, dress it, cook it, and eat it then and there. The first time was a fish, then frogs, then rabbits. Over the years I've gotten to where I can stomach a rare bite of deer loin as soon as the hide is off.

Of course, I prefer it with a bit of char, fresh off the grill, but I can't stomach what Bear does on his show sometimes. Sheep eyeballs, even boiled in a geothermal pool, are just not good eats.

One of the funniest stories that I have from my days as a Scoutmaster involved this. We told a new scout to "soap the pans and griddle" to make it easier for clean-up. The kid did a great job of soaping both inside and outside! We figured it out when the first round of pancakes seemed to be too bubbly. sick

Important lesson learned: Anyone can issue instructions. It takes far more work to be a teacher.

Duh. Foil is brilliant! I carry HD foil in my pocket kit but not in my cooking kit...how dumb is that?! I'll have to add a couple sq. feet tonight.

Don't forget the other old one: Those who can do, those who can't, teach.

(sorry Teacher, I just had to do it...)

"...a rare bite of deer loin..."

I don't know. Lots of wild critters have cooties that I prefer to cook a bit before I bite into a chunk...

OK, to answer a couple of questions about the CLIFFstove:

Matt26: I used a drill to cut a few starter holes in the bottom of the cup, then a hacksaw, and then a file. Used the drill for the air holes, too. DONT' FORGET AIR HOLES!!! This thing will get HOT!!!!!!!!. The wire is steel wire I found at a jobsite and bent into shape.

OldBaldGuy: No, I've never made plans for the thing. I winged it totally, using the Jack Karouac, stream-of-consciousness-and-a-bottle-of-Cuervo design approach. (So yes, there are a few "starter / oops" cups still in my workshop....)

Susan: The keyboard is there because my current version of the CLIFFstove is fully Bluetooth enabled, so I can set the cooking time and intensity from the warmth of my bivy bag. (The CLIFFstove can also hold 20GB of music or movies!) But since I got an iPhone, I don't use the Bluetooth features much anymore.... grin grin grin grin

Best,

.....CLIFF (like, who else?)
