Your kit will work out sweet for your biking trips. Kind of like kayaking, you can take a little more weight.

Nice Stove Very well built
A stove slightly larger in Diameter and height
Made of the same Type of bottle, with 4 hollow rivets
would totaly eliminate the need of a pot stand.

Thanks, but your comment kind of confused me. This stove doesn't use a pot stand. Also not sure what you mean about the rivets. Please expand.

I like baking with alcohol stoves... I haven't done it in the field (yet) but I've experimented with recipes at home (i.e. my own mix) with some success.

If you put a silicone muffin coup into the oven, it would make extracting the muffin easier :)

Thanks for the tip Tamerlin. Baking with alcohol stoves is almost as addictive as cooking with wood stoves. :D

I frequently end up camping in no-fire zones (you can't harvest wood from those areas because of the ecological impact), so I favor cooking with denatured alcohol over wood, but I do enjoy a good wood fire when it's an option!

Trail muffins are awesome, and a backcountry oven is easier to carry than a frying pan :)

Actually, the muffins come right out of the plastic container once they cool for a bit. As seen in the video it came out whole even when it was still hot.
The silicone muffin cups are ok for regular sized muffins, but again this is 1/2 a batch of muffin mix in 1 big cake (roughly 4" across by 3" tall). So unless you want to haul parts for an oven that is big enough to hold multiple muffin cups it won't work.
Again, muffin cups are ideal for an oven but not for this particular application. The idea of the Jack stove and accompanying cook set is to be versatile without having to haul a bunch of extra gear.

If I were baking muffins in my oven at home I would agree wholeheartedly. :mrgreen:

I'll have to try the freezer bag/boiling water method this coming season.

Good points... you've obviously thought this through quite a bit :)

I think your cook kit is an great idea -- especially when you account for the fact cooking involves more than just a stove. The stuff you cook IN is every bit as important as the stuff you cook with :)

Thank you. As I have said before, I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel or anything. This is all stuff people have made before. I'm just trying to tweak it a little to make the whole cook set more versatile.

I am working on my windscreen that can double as a wood-burner for this cook set. After discussions here, (thanks guys), I have decided to go with the bail handle on the cook pot. Once these are finished this set should be ready for production.
