Re: The Fire Mug

Here is my backup stove setup for a few of the 16oz FIREMUGs. Zelph was nice enough to let me test one of the few top jetted cobalt stoves that he created. It works great. I am hoping to convince him to make more of them. It seems to work better than anything else because the flame pattern is direct...

in the field testing

I apologize for the long post. Ive been brewing my tea mostly on the super stove recently, but got a real chance to test it and my Fire Mug in the Smokies this past week. My hiking buddy and I got in to the shelter well after dark and were hungry and ready for a cup of something hot. the super stove...

Re: The Fire Mug

That is a thin stainless plate from a kids picnic set. I cut out a hole to fit and it snaps on there real well. I am experimenting with ways to nest it. I flip it upside down and slide it down tight over the top for now. That is the very first one I made and one of my favorites. You can put a LOT of...

Re: The Fire Mug

Also, if its really hard to push the cup out from the bottom then you can cut the grippies off as best you can on the outside with a razor knife. Just slide the knife vertically in one sweep. It makes it easier to slide the cup out.

Re: The Fire Mug

I just kind of grab the plastic parts in one hand and the steel in the other and twist. some of them have a spot welded plate of lighter gage metal on the bottom. I drill a starter hole and then use tin snips to cut over to the edge till the pieces pop off. Under that there is usually a flat rim tha...
