Breakfast stove.

Post by Bearbonesnorm » Thu Jul 11, 2019 9:07 pm

I'll often survive on 'not much' when I'm out but recently the thought of starting the day with a nice bacon butty has become quite appealing. Obviously my usual 8g stove wouldn't be up to the task of frying bacon, yet I just couldn't bring myself to go down the gas route - instead, I made a giant version of the 8g stove.

Weighs 45g and has a burn time of up to 20 minutes, so more than capable of a bit of frying work :wink:

:-bd
But still use my trusty trangia burner if it's me and the boy,( which in turn means having to cook a proper breakfast , probably 4x heavier than that stove though)

Question: what weight/volume of meths would be required?

What's happened to your after burner stove and how does this compare?

I'm struggling to source the inners. My supplier tells me they will be back but they can't say when.
Being a side burner and having the pan sit directly on top of the stove means this suits a frying pan very well. The AB has a more concentrated flame and needs the pan to sit above the stove ... not easy to make a neat solution to that for a frying pan.
what weight/volume of meths would be required?
About 40ml - 50ml to get 20 minutes Colin.

Looks to be similar size to a beer/pop can stove unless your hands are particularly big or small :wink:

68mm OD and 55mm high Bob. I could reduce the height a bit without reducing capacity but it's just how it worked out. Nice thing when compared to a pop can stove is you can actually stand on these ..... not saying you'd want to but it does show that they're quite robust :wink:

Did you ever do the schoolkid trick of standing one-legged on an empty pop can then tapping the side so it collapsed under you?

Thanks for that Bob, sounds like a good plan for some weekend fun with the kids!

Just need to buy and drink some cans now

We used to just tap the can with a finger but a pencil will be a bit safer. :o Also wear decent shoes/boots with solid soles :wink:
