Re: Voting for December ''Stove of the month''

Do I get a vote?

Re: Soot and Creosote Removal

In scouts the "tenderfoot" was always asked to soap the pots before the first meal. For some reason 1 out of every 3 would soap the INSIDE. It was always rather funny but made dinner come that much later. My father and I never soaped ours, we just let them get black. I still do,

Re: Alcohol don't burn in cold weather.

I'd like to test out a starlyte sometime, but I think my next project is still the fancyfeast stove. I haven't gotten the mesh yet. Too busy camping and not enough time building.
