    Just curious I've bought and tried a few I still have a gram weenie pro that I like I like them primarily for quick water boiling without a smokey fire. I'd like to build a few this winter with the kids/grandkids so thought I'd ask.

    Thanks

    I just searched youtube for all my designs. The best so far is the super cat stove. Simple and effective.

    I have made several from zen stoves, the one I use the most is like the attached pic but used a Vienna sausage can and it has a double row of jet holes (used a single hole punch).

    Here is me and my little girl using it to make char cloth

    Can't really see the stove but it works good, and yes she is wearing a princess dress.

    Yea go down and pickup some beer thats in those aluminum bottles. budlight and a few others use them.. Super easy to make a stove from those. If you put the stove in your pot it does not need to be super sturdy. Actually my favorite i have made is just a redbull can.

    There was an old thread about making them out of monster energy drink cans. Was it @91bravo that did it!? I can't remember.
