Re: Lighting the Backcountry boiler

The pan support of my BushCooker, so probably therefore the BushBuddy's, fits into the BB's fire pan enlarging the capacity.It does work both ends up but the pots support upwards is by far the most stable.I have seen on here that the pot support can be used for any alky stove so the could be useful ...

Life straw modification, ideas needed to fill cups.

I read that by using a Ziploc tightly around the Straw and squeezing you could fill cups and pots. I have tried that without much success. I am think along the lines of pushing the filter of the straw through a membrane on a bottle/bag,something like a stretched rubber glove,bike inner tube,condom!....

Re: Lighting the Backcountry boiler

The Pocket Stove goes inside the BCB cone by about 5/8th (18mm). Unless you used a bundle of really small twigs you wouldn't get a full boil from one loading, the advantage is once the fire is going well you can put thicker longer wood in the end stoking hole of the Pocket Stove and of course still ...

Re: Lighting the Backcountry boiler

As well as the BCB I have the UK Pocket Stove which I think is like the US QuWis collapsible stove.The Pocket Stove fits as a fire pan for the BCB and does a good job. I therefore think a fire pan based on this type of set up, like a Nimberwill Nomads stove, would work better than a hardware cloth c...

Re: Backcountry boiler:conelike alcohol efficiencyFromFancyF

What diameter holes are suggested being added to the BCB fire pan and is stainless steel being suggest for the damper.I note there is small handle being added to the damper is that just a nut and bolt? The plate on top of a Fancy feast seems a better bet than a steel tube has anyone compared them.

Re: Lighting the Backcountry boiler

bbb, I like the look of your idea. Before I make one are the uppermost bolts for the kettle to sit on. Overall the new base seems to be shown as having a larger diameter than the kettle,as noted in other fire box mods aren't the flames up the sides then a problem or with the cut down neoprene is tha...
