Put 2 cans under it. The canister is long enough.

In the early 70's (72 or 73) I bought a two-burner Sterno to take on a bike trip. It worked well if you had time- a LOTS of time. I like eggs too, and to make a breakfast of sausage(cooked first to get grease) and eggs it took between a half and a full hour. Nice and quiet, very safe, simple like a rock, but SLOW. After the trip it got given to my brother for his BOB. It was probably never used after that.

BOB's are very seldom used and it's a good thing. ;) Good to have them though. I tried to find the photos of the one I made out of two food warming tray holders, no luck. Maybe I can find the stove and reshoot.

The wickatized canned heet containers work well, much better than sterno jello :D

Sterno goes back quite aways.

It even made the lyircs to an old blues song from 1929 "Canned Heat Blues".
http://www.harptab.com/lyrics/ly5159.shtml

From the wiki entry
"Invented around 1900, Sterno is made from ethanol, methanol, water and an amphoteric oxide gelling agent, plus a dye that gives it a characteristic pink color. Designed to be odorless, a 7 oz (198 g) can will burn for up to two hours. The methanol is added to denature the product, which essentially is intended to make it too toxic to be drinkable (see methylated spirit for more information)."

I've been using the sterno stove since the 60's. I think the last time I used one was about a year ago.

They work great with Buddy Burners" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddy_Burner or found fuel.

A bit heavy for backpacking. I keep one in the trunk of my car for emergencies.

Coghlan still makes them and they can be found at outdoor supply stores. Here is one:

Note, they are painted with crap paint that has to be burned off before you van use them.

I couldn't see the little air hole on the one side like yours.

The link looks like a Pyromid Pyroduo 612 sorry didn't get the link :?

It's time for you to sell. You're not using it!!! :lol:
