Normally I would just spray a little alcohol on the ceramic stove top that I do my tests on. I just did some burn tests using my Jack stove with the same pot, fuel, stove, same te...

Why the Heine pot?

I have been lurking on this site and a few others, as well as YouTube to get ideas for a good light cook set. For years I have known about alcohol stoves but never really gave them any thought. I live in Iowa and the winters are long and boring so I figured making a cook kit would be a good use of m...
