Actually, turns out not to be as dangerous as I figured, basically just because of the thick nature of the aluminum body.. it has to get really hot, then it rocks, this is basically just a mini flame-thower.

Re: Brass Nozzle Stove, that may send me to the ER later today.

Actually, 4 tries tonight and the plastic around the nozzle is still fine..

This thing is a bitch to prime, and the wind is gusting like crazy here.. I only got it lit a few times.. Gonna re-try in a bit. Got some good video though.
