How to Turn a Beer Can into a Camping Stove

Came across this brilliant idea of making an improvised camp stove from a simple beer can and alcohol for fuel.  It's pretty much guaranteed that you will have these two things when you are out in the woods.  This seems like a really powerful stove, boiling water around 5 minutes.  As a huge plus, any unused fuel can just be placed back into the bottle.



More infomartion on this stove can be found on http://zenstoves.net/.  Zen stoves.net even has data on differnet fuels, and how to cook in a hotel room.

For a different approach that uses wood, there is the Hobo Tin Rocket Stove.  Just the name sounds cool, and I think it seems a bit more safe than the improvised alcohol stove.
