The "BB" burner

Postby zelph » Mon Feb 18, 2008 7:12 pm

Maybe we should call it the 25 cent stove. We've heard of the penny stove!!!! :mrgreen:

These burners are made from Burts' Bee's balm tins. They hold about 10ml of fuel and will heat 2 cups of water up to 150 degrees. I would think there would be no problem boiling 1 cup of something with 10ml.

Alwayshiking donated them to my obsession :D. I filled em up with fuel absorbant and covered with 6oz fiberglass cloth. Did one quick burn to see how they burned, went ok. Just another container tested for the heck of it.

Found a similar tin @ WallyWorld called Beeswax Lip balm. I like the balm so it is taking a long time to empty the container :lol: Now i know it will not boil two cups but I didn't think it would anyway---tooooo small. :mrgreen:

I thought I'd include these small containers to show what's available for day hikes when only 1 cup of warm drink is required to take the chill off in the cooler months. The aluminum mug I used holds 2 cups of water and will do further testing on boil time using 1/2 ounce fuel. The mug makes for a compact pot. I purchased some awhile back at Big Lots @ 1.29 ea.
