Thanks for the research Connie. Interesting link.

is not when the water boils, but when the "water smokes".


I did that once, I consider it "scorched" or burned :mrgreen: ;)

There is a "smoke" that comes up.

It is really steam, but it curls up like "smoke".

It is the first "steam" that comes up.

This is the kind of "research" I enjoy, BTW.

You are right, the first sing of steam comes a short time before the boil. (along with the noise, prior to boil it subsides)

Fathers day

So,Oops.. when are we going to see one that is small enough to fold up and backpack?Looks like you're heading that way!Couldn't you line the inside of a folding umbrella with foil for your reflector "dish"?(dual purpose!)..and use the end of the handle to hold the food cooking pot/area?Wouldn't that be about where the maximum heat is? :roll: Hmm..black pot?... :roll:
..Just thinking out loud again.. :lol:

A backpacking version absolutely needs to be made of titanium or some other exotic metal. :D ;)

I thin if the temps are 103 degrees outside you could just put the eggs in a black bowl, place in the sun and they would cook in due time. ;)
