For sure it's a stove for two or more walkers. Where did you get the beer can?
I didn't call it a "beer" can..I called it a BEAR can..I have a bolt and wingnut that goes through across the top making it impossible for bears or raccoons to get into..holds three quarts of food or whatever and weighs 1lb 1oz....it can easily be strapped outside my golite pack in the helmet area(for easy access to munchies on the trail :lol: ).It can also be used for boiling enough water(in one shot) for filling camelbacks or platypus bags..Thrift store for $2...I've had it a while..Never has seen another one like it..Sure beats carrying a mandatory 5 gallon bucket(or something for the raccoons on the coast) on a lot of the trails.Also protects dry noodles from becoming dust...

The shape reminds me of a beer carrying pot used in early England/Europe. Locals would go to the pub and have it filled with draft beer and walk it back home for a night of chug-a-lug :mrgreen:

Sounds good to me..unfortuantely I didn't find it that way..It would work swell for that..Has a nice sturdy handle and recessed lid.I'm thinking maybe it was a farm "milk can' of some sort.
I was going to give it a "bear" test..throw in a bunch of the "good" crunchies my "fat cat" craves...stick the lid on,put the bolt through,wingnut,and let her have at it! :lol: If there's a way and Little Friskies in there..she'd figure out how to get to them! :lol:

This shows it better.It's actually 3 quarts I think.. but a "cream can" probably was its original purpose.My two golite packs both have the "helmet" holders so it should fit fine there..if I need to carry the thing..Zelph,I'll keep my bacon and eggs in there on ice! :roll: :lol:

I'd say if they are puking all over your tent or hammock..it may not be a good idea. :lol: My cats are spoiled rotten. They only like theirs as egg salad with lots of mayo..so I couldn't tell you.You might wanna ask a vet before a possible huge bill!
