Thanks Zelph.

Prices for denatured at my local hardware store when I bought my gallon.
Prices have gone up since then:

1 Pint $4.50
1 Quart $6.00
1 Gallon $10.00

So now you understand why I have a gallon:-)

Re: BudLyte Super Stove

Keep in mind that salt combined with the water in the alcohol will oxidize aluminum, especially with the added temperature of the flame..
I'd be afraid that adding salt would shorten the life of the stove.

Re: BudLyte Super Stove

Yes, I'm very interested in the white gas mod and will probably do it once I use up my gallon of denatured:-) Zelph, when you say alcohol burns slow after the mod, what would you figure at 20 degrees, twice as long to boil two cups or longer? I guess a pot stand would work to raise the pot up to the...

Re: BudLyte Super Stove

Has anyone tried alcohol in the white gas modified stove? I suspect it works, but take longer to boil. Would it be less efficient than the standard alcohol version when using alcohol? I'm thinking of modifying mine because of the extra BTU's per ounce that white gas has, but I'd like to be able to f...

Re: Hamburger Rocks

This is very useful thread. The leaner, the better, when dehydrating meats as the fat doesn't dehydrate well and can go rancid after a while. Adding salt, maybe more that you would like, will help keep any residual fat from going rancid. Very lean meats will always taste better if you season well an...

Re: if weight was less of an issue...

What I do whenever practical is bring my titanium Zip stove (which also works wonders at driving away mosquitos). Or my Kelly Kettle. I just received a Bushbuddy Ultra which i'm dying to try. After i've tested it I think i'll cut a hole in the bottom to fit a Zip fan assembly. Wood fires in a Kelly...

Re: cheese

I think when it comes to dehydrating, fat goes rancid faster than lean. Cheese has a good amount of fat. The way to get around this is to use a lot of salt like in the standard dryish cheeses like Parmesan, Romano, ... and just cut the mold off when it's time to use. Some mold is OK and in some case...

Re: Foldable Pocket Cooker

I agree with the modifications ideas for calm to moderate windy areas and I think for backpacking the shortening is a definitely a good idea. Holes also make sense, especially for alcohol stoves. You ideas would make it alot like other screens I have used, except for the hinged folding aspect. Addin...

Re: Foldable Pocket Cooker

I have used wood, twigs, pine cones, ... a few times. I haven't taken it on any extended trips yet. I thought I would have a problem with warping of the windscreen, being aluminum and all. I tend to keep my fires in it small, and since aluminum is a good heat conductor, I guess the heat sort of spr...

Re: Dehydrating

I think the big plus of having a dehydrator is being able to purchase items on sale and have them for off season times. As an example: Sweet peppers can cost $4 a lb off season, $0.60 lb in season. I once bought 20 lbs and dried em up in a few days. I ended up with less than 3 lbs when dried and sti...
