Our quest is to minitureize it to the size that only requires 3/4 ounce of fuel and it could be a side burner just like the video :mrgreen:

It's OK for flames to be on the side of pots :lol:

Think Ring Of Fire :P

i've never used a canister stove but i have used those and if it fits the bottle it already has a adjustment on it try it. those are the only parts i think you would use but if it works. speaking of canister stoves i just got my first one in does anybody know where i could get a good deal on the fuel? i want to start playing around and see what i can come up with.

I don't think there is such a thing as a good deal on canisters of fuel. When they see me coming, I think they raise the prices :roll:

GAGA, think compact and light weight. Miniturize
