Re: Salmon and Noodles

FYI....That Salmon I mentioned is .97 cents at Walmart, and a 1.97 at our local Savemart . Over twice as much, really? They also had a couple packaged rice side dishes that looked good,cost one dollar and they are now lower sodium too. They serve two, so I would divided them in to sandwich size zipl...

Salmon and Noodles

Nothing really new, but maybe a bit different. I like the Shrimp Ramen, use less water or dump out the excess. Add half the season packet, I pack TB Fire Sauce, and one foil pouch of Starkist Red Salmon. Salmon is 97 cents, Ramen is 18 cents. Taste good, actually has some nutritional value, plus it'...

Re: Hello from the gold country

Where you watching the video I did? If so, did you notice the burning fuel oozing out from between the sidewalls? I guess the heat must have loosened the fit, and it nearly became the"Steve079 Burns His Garage Down", video. Top of the stove warped, pot didn't sit flat and seal the stove, and the res...

Re: Just Add Water

I know you can add water to a Unican type stove, and it will drop the heat and allow the stove to simmer. I've tried adding water to alcohol as a premix, but it doesn't work quite the same as the technique used fot the Unican. For that, you start with 2oz, once you reach boil, add 1/2oz of water, an...

Re: Hello from the gold country

I'm not an expert on this at all, I just followed along with the video that MrBill did, on a bigger can. The 2 sections of can are simply pressed together. The alcohol wicks up between the 2 sides, and provides the flame ring. I guess the wicking is the same as capillary action?? Maybe the link will...

Hello from the gold country

Happy to have found this site from You tube. Been fiddling with some simple stoves for a couple months now, but not for backpacking usage. I wanted a way to heat water fast and easy, for coffee, while at work. The work place for me varies, I'm a contractor, and spend most my time away from power and...
