Dear /out/doorsmen,

I'm writing you today because I want to know what you believe to be the best "outdoor"stove currently on the market. I know I could easily heat rocks to cook with but I don't think the people I'd take camping with me would appreciate their food cooked in such a manner. The Firebox G2 is making waves and the BushBox Ultralight ( see picture ) along with the Emberlit are popular but if I'm going to sink money into a stove like this I want to do so only after getting opinions on which one is best and why. Maybe you like the stove you're using because it is durable or easy to assemble; tell me about it. Maybe the stove you prefer is easy to feed into; I want to know. Let us discuss the best "outdoor" stove.
>>
The best outdoor stove is a Jetboil minimo.

Saying something is the best is something anybody can do. What I want to know from you and others is what makes it ( in your case what makes the Jetboil Minimo ) the best? An example of this ( see image ) can be seen in the avertisement for EmberLit's Fire Ant; listing why they think it is a revolutionary product.

I have a ring of aluminium sheeting with holes in it, that I took from an old Apple MacBook. It fits perfectly over a sterno can, and when unhooked, it slips right into my tiny cook pot. MacBooks do make for pretty pricey stoves, though.
>>
I found a jetboil flash for cheaps on eBay. Boils enough water to heat up a wet pack meal, make a brew and have hot shave water leftover. Takes less than a minute.

Used it for 16 days straight on one of the little canisters and its still not empty.

Interesting idea. I have an old laptop that isn't workable and I've just been holding onto it for ages. Maybe I'll take it apart and see if it has something similar to what you're describing.
>>
>>638943
Depends on the brand. I fix computers for a living, and that old MacBook was the only one that had aluminium of a decent thickness. It was also already scrapped.

You'll probably be better off selling the laptop on CL, and buying yourself a monster or other large canned beverage.

What fuel source(s) do you want to use or are allowed to use in the areas you'll be using the stove?

Some places don't allow anything but gels, or wood only, or gas only.

>>638980
I'd ideally like it to be able to use multiple different fuel sources but I always love a good wood-burning fire.
>>
>>639007
So you need a good, foldable metal box, that can have a gas burner under it. You've be able to use any fuel type then. Wood and gels in the box or a burner with gas under it.

I've been looking into just this a lot recently (should be working on my thesis but #YOLO).
Check out TLUD (top lit updraft) stoves. Most are larger and designed for third world fucks, but it can scale down probably. I'm probably going to throw together a micro naturally aspirated top lit updraft stove in the next week or so.

Anyway the whole point of these fuckers is they end up performing pyrolysis on your fuel (which can be all sorts of shit, from whatever wood or wood chips to literally shit) and burn the gas that's emitted. They're efficient as fuck, burn pretty damn hot, are stupid simple, and they make a nice, clean, nearly smoke/soot free flame.

Pic related is the basic idea.

Also the capillary hoop stove (search CHS-U on youtube for instructions) sounds like a pretty cool alcohol burner.
>>
>>638910
I have a Firebox and a MSR XGK. I almost always just use the XGK.

IMO If you want to use natural (wood etc) fuel, you're probably better off just getting a grill like Purcell Trench Grill (or a cheaper variant) than something like a Firebox or similar small 'stoves'. This way you can build bigger or smaller fires to suit your situation.

I found the Firebox very frustrating to use. In any conditions that are less than ideal, it is extremely difficult to get enough of a fire going to actually accomplish anything due to the small size. If your fuel sources are less than perfectly dry, they will require a substantial amount of extra energy to burn - energy that is not available from such a small stove. In those situations, you need to build a bigger fire in order for it to actually sustain itself. I had a very hard time keeping fires going in the Firebox using chipped deadfall when it was -20C outside. Over several days of attempts, I was never able to bring water to full boil in those conditions, even if I had a small fire going for ~30 minutes at times, it just didn't produce enough heat.

In warmer controlled environments when you can use the best fuel, I imagine it would be fine.

That is adorable and somewhat reminds me of the Toaks TI Backpacking stove. I don't have an Ikea in my area but it is about time for a road-trip so I'll be sure to plan my route for a stop at Ikea so I can grab a looksie.

Where are you looking to camp?

I use an MSR Pocketrocket for normal solo/duo backpacking, and I have no qualms with it. Does what it's supposed to, easy to use, compact. And I use an MSR Whisperlite for 3+ people backpacking, or anytime in the winter or high elevation, because liquid is way better at altitude and in the cold than canister fuel.

If I'm car camping then a friend I go with regularly brings his Coleman two burner camp stove, similar to >>638924

I don't think I could ever do solid or alcohol fuel, because frankly, I'm impatient and I don't mind the extra weight for the convenience.
>>
>>639295
Ideally just something that is easy to break down/set up that takes multiple fuel sources. I'm fine just making a stone stove but my family wouldn't be willing to eat off it.

Whatever gets the family to eat at the campsite, man. I have no desire to go camping only to be eating from McDonalds 4 meals a day.

For those who made their own hobo stoves out of cans, how well do those work? Also, do the cans last a long time or does the heat warp them quickly?

There's a lot of youtube videos for wood gas stoves...
>>
>>639310
Is multiple fuel sources a must have for you? What is your price range? How many people are you cooking for?

There is no one-size-fits-all stove. It sounds to me like you will be wanting a Coleman, or equivalent brand, camping stove that takes those small green propane bottles. Whoever you're camping with won't give a damn what alloy your stove is made of or how it can use 7 different types of fuel if you can't make them consistent warm food. The two burner propane stoves are also simple to operate and set up/break down.
>>
I swear by these, they can hold all the hexamine tablets needed for an outing inside and if you have a lighter you are pretty much set. They also cool down quickly so are good for cooking on the go.
>>
>>639379
I can't imagine I'll be cooking for more than five or six persons. Ideally I'd like to spend no more than $200 and while multiple fuel sources isn't a must I ideally want something that burns wood given how easy it is to collect leaves, twigs and the like and just toss them into a drybag for a wet day. So far, from what I know, I really like what I've seen of Solo Stove, the TOAKS stoves. Some in this thread ( >>639214 and >>639225 ) have mentioned the Firebox ( not sure if they meant Generation 1 or 2 ( G1 and G2 ) and others of similar design are not so great although I have heard the G2 Firebox is a huge improvement over G1. I've not heard a lot about the Bushbox other than a micro-model exists that is made specifically for Esbit tabs/Wet Fires/etc.
>>
>>639325
Just bring junk food then.since you seem be clueless, lazy and broke
>>
>>639264
>you can make this out of dirt too
Yeah, you can basically make it out of anything, it's really just setting up adequate primary and secondary airflow, and maybe causing some turbulence and draft with a reducer and a chimney.

>Its smoke free after the red flame
It can be smoke free basically the entire time if you do it right. The problem is lots of the stoves you can buy don't finish the concept, like the solo stove or busybody. They've got the right idea (though some of the "theory' is absurdly wrong, like the solo stove claim that wood gas gets down drafted and sucked through the secondary airless, that's completely false). The problem is the gasses are just loosely burning at the top.

If you simply add a small aigret, then a plate with a reduced hole on top, then a chimney, you pull the gases up and combine with oxygen and they burn much more thoroughly. Of course that also creates a tall and unwieldy structure, but whatever.

For best effect one should do the math to figure out optimal ratios of diameter to height, and ventilation surface, but even just eyeballing shit makes for a far more efficient burn than an open fire. And if you get it more or less correct, you're left with a nice pile of charcoal which can be used for further cooking/grilling.

Probably a bit complicated/large/heavy for backpacking, but for car camping or off the grid living it's basically ideal.
The charcoal is great for grilling or running a forge or furnace, or biochar for fertilizer if you piss on it.
>>
>>639388
You might look into the "beaner stove". It's based on TLUD design, but is dual fuel. It can burn either biomass or alcohol. Pretty nifty: http://worldstove.com/wp-content/uploads/download/beaner_instructions.pdf

I've cooked for my family with one of these. It's pretty easy to cook most anything and even little kids can operate it and love to keep the fire going. The most elaborate thing I cooked was spaghetti with garlic bread. If it had a gas attachment it would be perfect

>>639390
I'd rather not bring junk-foods; and you are correct in regards to my knowledge of these sorts of stoves. I'm clueless about them, too lazy/lacking in time to read reviews on every product on the market and lack money for anything super expensive.

>>639398
Is that a Firebox or are my eyes playing tricks on me? If it is I'd love to read more about your experiences with it/thoughts about it. I'd also like to know if it is G1 or G2.

>>
>>639413
It looks great for being six years old. How often do you use it and in what seasons/weather. Finally, do you think that the Firebox can, realistically, hold up to the promo-video that Tech Bench has airing on their YT channel? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zsgv9j5czU

Obviously you don't need all that shit. You can build one yourself out of aluminum cans, stuff it with any kind of wood or biomass, and light it with just a bic lighter or a flint and steel with kindling and shit or whatever the fuck you want to use.

Pretty autistic to think you have to do things exactly as in the pdf.

There are a few, not many though. My main reason for preferring wood is simply because it is so easily available/renewable.

>>639661
Actually, as I was doing some research on my own earlier today I found www.solostove.com actually makes a model that accommodates 4-6 people. They call it their "campfire" model and it nests inside their 2-pot set for compact storage. They also have a "Titan" model that nests inside their 1800 ML pot and a "Lite" model ( I think it was their original model ) that nests inside their 900ML pot.

TOAKS also has a full size and a mini stove that nest inside cookware.

>>639362
If by hobo stove you the beer can style alcohol stove, they work well, don't warp from heat, and burn as efficiently as anything, mostly. But they crush easily and can spill flaming liquid everywhere. If you're set on alcohol stoves, the thicker aluminum bottles or axe spray can models are far more crush resistant, and would be worth building in a reservoir and fill valve to solve those issues.

I'm currently using sterno because I'll be hiking through areas that prohibit alcohol, but would switch back otherwise.

I just made a ghetto wood gasification burner. Used two can and a shitty 99¢ pocket knife. Not perfect but I'm pretty fucking impressed with how well it works considering I just eyeballed that shit.

Only did a quick burn with a few tiny twigs, but after a mishap with some lighter fluid and a giant flaming mess on my table it looked like it was working right. Made a nice hot torch like flame, the burn was above the wood coming in jets from the secondary air inlets.

Kind of curious now as to how long it will burn with a fully packed load, since I made it pretty tiny. It's a regular bean can for the outer, and a tiny tomato paste can inside,so it can only take like <1/4 cup of fuel I'd guess.

I'll post pics later when I have time to do a full burn.
>>
>>640590
Also since the fuel chamber is so tiny I can already seeing it being a bit of a pain in the ass to load, since I was doing sticks upright and they have to be like 2-2.5" long so they don't extend beyond the secondary inlets. The width is good though, just wish I could find taller cans to increase the aspect ratio of it.

Also haven't added a condenser lid of chimney yet, curious to see how much that'll improve the draft.
>>
>>639649
I wish they made these not in aluminum.

Since aluminium is highly thermally conductive, and titanium is nearly insulative, why are most stoves made of aluminium and cooksets made of titanium? Seems like a really inefficient use of fuel.
>>
>>640845
>most cooksets are made of titanium

wut

Titanium in general is less common in most applications because its ignition point is actually lower than its melting point, so the only way to melt it is to create an environment with no oxygen, which is a pain in the ass.
>>
>>640879
So it burns faster than it melts... I doubt any gas stove or campfire will get that hot. My question was why make cook pots out of it when it actively reflects heat.

Here's the pic I posted last spring illustrating the way I angled the jets. Basically what you do is after drilling the jets, you take the same drill bit, turn it around and stick it's base into the jet, then just press upward until the jet is bent upwards at about a 45 degree angle.

Pretty sure all the alcohol gets burned off. In the odd scenario where that didn't happen, the remaining alcohol would evaporate before you'd be using the stove again.

Plus if any was left before you were cooking, it would definitely evaporate as soon as you started cooking as the boiling point is only 65C.

Too bad that taxes make using such a toxic fuel viable over ethanol though.

No, propane is MUCH more reliable in cold conditions, as it’s a gas (upon exiting the bottle or tank) while gasoline vapor can condense in cold weather back to a liquid.

As anybody who has tried starting a snowblower on a freezing cold day can easily conform.

There’s a reason power ice fishing auger manufacturers are all switching to propane.

Ignorance. I suggest at least googling something you clearly have little knowledge let alone first hand experience with before trying to make a ridiculous claim.

Propane stoves and propane ice augers are two very different things.

You clearly don't understand how camping stoves work if you truly believe propane is better for stoves at colder conditions.

We're not talking about ice augers. They operate completely differently than stoves.

Naphtha stoves (white gas) stoves are more consistent at colder temperatures because one has the ability to pressurize the fuel when needed. The ability to just pour in unleaded gasoline which is much more readily available is also a clear advantage when you're in the middle of nowhere. Gasoline is much more readily available than propane canisters.

White gas stoves such as the one posted are much better at colder temperatures for a few reasons. The fuel is heated because it has to travel across a burner through a generator before it travels back under to be outputted. The individual that is operating the stove controls the pressure as you must pump the stove to get it going. These two factors result in a much more consistent flame.

In most propane stoves (I've seen very few that you can add pressure) the pressure is what you have with the canister. The pressure drops as the temperature drops. The pressure of propane below -10 goes to shit. You do not get the same use out of a propane canister at 10C and -10C. The use is much shorter lived and the flame is much more erratic.

>Liquid fuel stoves are consistent through all seasons and conditions.

I've never had much issue starting my snowblower even at -40C...

I've used all types of stoves over the last 25 years in Northern Ontario with the scouts and working as a geoscientist doing countless field expeditions. To this day nothing beats liquid fuel for an all around stove.
>>
>>642093
I have one and I like it... I've burned 2 fuel canisters thru it (maybe 40 uses) so it's already paid for itself. The stove is really only suited for boiling water due to the narrow flame ring but I'm sure it could be used for limited cooking. I use mine mainly for freeze dried - ramen - rice or pasta and it works great for that.

Anybody know of a single burner propane stove that doesn't have the burner sit on top of the tank? I like the convenience of propane, but don't like the thought of a pot sitting on top of a propane canister.

>>
>>642584

There's no danger from positioning the pot above the propane bottle - the only downside is that sort of layout can be kind of top heavy and prone to tipping over unless you have some kind of base or legs to stabilize the tank. Having the burner screw directly to the tank is the simplest design and therefore less prone to failure over time when compared to a system that uses a hose.

I have a Coleman propane model 5410 (pic related) whose hose cracked and developed a leak next to the crimp fitting where it attaches to the stove. I was able to nigger-rig a field repair with a piece of electrical tape then a more permanent solution with JB weld after arriving home. A couple years later, I found an identical stove in poor condition at Goodwill for $4.94 which luckily had a useable hose assembly.

so yeah, hoses do fail

It's pretty simple...

With freeze dried, you only boil water in the pot. The food is "cooked" in it's resealable bag so you can get by with a much smaller pot. If the food is actually cooked in the pot, it's going to need to be large enough to hold 4 large servings (plus a little bit of extra room for movement during boiling)

I sorta agree... Sterno's flame just isn't very intense. I used pic related this past summer and it took almost 30 minutes to bring 1 liter of water to a boil. Granted, the pot didn't fit the stove very well but that's still a completely unacceptable time. While it's not suited for quickly boiling water, Sterno does a much better job at actually cooking food. I've made pancakes, bacon, fried potatoes, fried fish, griddle cakes (cornbread), and rice on my Sterno stove and the moderate heat did a great job of cooking without the danger of overheating and burning it.

You say HEET is "worse" than 90% isopropyl or denatured... Could you elaborate? Exactly how do you think it's worse? In my experience denatured is pretty good but insanely expensive and 90% isopropyl absolutely SUCKS compared to HEET. 90% Isopropyl takes longer to come up to priming temperature, blackens the bottom of your cooking vessel and when it burns out, it leaves this nasty water residue behind. Depending on you stove type (soda can - water bottle) this leftover water can be very difficult to remove and if NOT removed, it will contaminate your next fuel load, lowering it's percentage and exacerbating the negative effects I listed above. HEET, on the other hand, quickly comes up to priming temp, burns hot and clean and has a beautiful blue flame (pic related)

>20% less energy per gram

If you were NASA preparing for a mars mission or some ultralight fag worrying about shaving .023 grams from your pack, then maybe this is something to think about but in real world usage you'll never even notice it. What you WILL notice though is that denatured alcohol is more than 2X the price of HEET (25 cents per ounce vs. 11 cents per ounce). Another concern is that denatured usually comes in a big heavy clunky ass metal can whereas HEET has a small lightweight plastic bottle. With denatured, you're forced to find a smaller lightweight container to carry it in plus all the hassle of having to transfer the fuel into it. Depending on the length of my trip I just carry one or two bottles of HEET in my pack (usually one) then chunk them into the campfire as they are emptied.
>>
>>647623
How fucking lazy are you that pouring liquid into a plastic bottle is considered a hassle? You can get denatured alcohol cheap, and just because you found someone overcharging for it on Amazon doesn't mean anything.

Let's compare them when buying from the same seller:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/SUNNYSIDE-83432-Denatured-Alcohol-Solvent-1-qt./40891753

http://www.walmart.com/ip/HEET-28201-Antifreeze-Water-Remover-12-oz/40737402

That's 9.5 cents/oz of denatured alcohol and 11.5 cents/oz for HEET. The only benefit to HEET is that you might find it at more places that don't have denatured alcohol available.

They are both good and will work fine for a trip. But just because they will both work doesn't mean one isn't the superior fuel.

I would suggest the opposite is the case, as denatured alcohol has been around forever and can be found in local hardware stores.
>>
>>647677
Most hardware stores will carry HEET as well though. Gas stations will have HEET while they probably won't have denatured alcohol unless they happen to be in a place with a bunch of thru hikers.

So I'd give the edge to HEET for availability even if it's pretty rare that you won't be able to find denatured alcohol when you need it. If you do what >>647623 this /out/ist does (i.e. not resupplying on the trail) then there's really no excuse except ignorance/laziness to not be buying denatured alcohol by the gallon as it will be cheaper and lighter than using HEET.

You fuckin' dildo, did you even notice that the denatured alcohol you posted the link to isn't in stock at Walmart but must be ordered and shipped from a third party? AND did you see that 6 to 7 day shipping is 5 dollars??? So the actual price is $8.03 a quart or TWENTY FIVE CENTS AN OUNCE and btw, the price I posted the pic of wasn't for "someone overcharging for it on Amazon" it's Home Depot's everyday price....

And yes, pouring denatured out of those cans IS a hassle. The nozzle is always short as hell and not suited for precision pouring which in most cases necessitates the use of a funnel. So to use denatured requires me to have 1) a storage container 2) a funnel 3) a container to use in my pack.

>>647675

What are you on about? I wouldn't actually order it online and pay shipping. If you noticed, the HEET also had a $5.00 shipping charge in the link I posted. Both are being sold through the same 3rd party retailer, Zoro. If you go into a hardware store or Walmart to buy stuff you'll notice that they don't charge shipping.

When you buy denatured alcohol it comes in a storage container. I honestly can't help you if you think that needing a spare gatorade bottle is a problem or if you can't pour liquids from one vessel to another.

When I showed this douche nozzle >>647589 that the price of denatured was DOUBLE that of HEET, he accused me of finding "someone overcharging for it on Amazon", apparently unaware that 7 to 8 bucks a quart is the going rate. (I'm now of the opinion that he probably has no actual experience in either buying or using ANY sort of cooking fuel)

He then found Sunnyside "denatured alcohol" listed on Walmart.com for $3.03 and was all like "Oh yeah, see here... denatured alcohol is cheaper". What the dipshit failed to notice however was the $5.00 shipping, sooo I pointed this out to him.

He then flew into a frenzy tapping away at his keyboard until he found that a quart of Sunnyside "denatured alcohol" was available from Zoro.com for $3.03 with FREE SHIPPING. He proudly displayed his findings then smugly added, "Have you even looked in a store for denatured alcohol before?"

He found ONE example of "denatured alcohol" (notice the quotes?) that was priced lower than HEET and preened around in glorious victory.

except that...

Sunnyside denatured alcohol IS NOT denatured alcohol

Denatured alcohol has traditionally been 90% ethanol + 10 % methanol (other adulterants are now used depending on the intended use). There are US, British and EU regulations mandating the formulations. All formulations adhere to this 90%
ethanol base. (a few specific formulations allow further dilution to 85% ethanol)

Sunnyside is 52.3 % methanol and 43.2% ethanol. Disregarding international regulations, even the most brain dead jackass would have to admit that Sunnyside is actually adulterated METHANOL since it's found in greater concentration.

You will indeed find both methanol and (actual) denatured alcohol cheaper per ounce in large quantities, and while there is some variation in price on retail quantities (a quart or less) you WILL discover that denatured is usually around twice the price of methanol which was my original assertion...

Propane is supposed to be good to 40 degrees below 0 F. Maybe you just have a bad propane adapter. I have 3 of them and one is definitely weaker than the others. Maybe try cleaning the jet. They make a tool for this (tiny thin wire w/ a metal handle) that doesn't cost but a buck or two. You can probably get one at your local hardware store.

>>No burning fuel releases good vapors

Uh... burning hydrogen produces only water vapor.

so there's that
>>
>>648856
I wonder why hydrogen never took off as a camping fuel.

By weight, it's the most efficient fuel that isn't some kind of nuclear. It's probably just because propane is cheaper.
>>
>>648859
2 reasons - Propane is a component of raw natural gas while hydrogen must be created through energy intensive industrial processes, therefore hydrogen is much more expensive. Also when propane is compressed, it forms a liquid which allows a lot of it to be stored in a small space. Hydrogen on the other hand requires extremely cold temperatures before it will condense into a liquid so much less energy can be stored in a given space as compared to propane unless you have a method of cryogenically storing and maintaining it.

How "ubiquitous" are funnels contaminated with methanol, denatonium benzoate, and methyl ethyl ketone? Once you use a funnel to transfer your fuel, it's pretty much ruined for any other purpose.

You stupid shit, the whole point was that with HEET, you're not required to have a storage container, funnel and pack container because all three are integrated in the bottle it comes in. (pic related cuz I'm sure you can't picture it in your mind)

Mine is just a ring of aluminium sheeting, as a vented potstand. It does, as anon said, take about fifteen minutes to boil water, but if you're just heating it up to rehydrate a meal or make a hot drink, five minutes is plenty.

This piqued my interest so I've been researching it and, YES it apparently does work. You can also substitute chalk or plain Tums for the egg shells (these are sources of calcium carbonate) When mixed with vinegar it forms calcium acetate. Then add your alcohol of choice and it's supposed to gel instantly.

I'm gonna try this tomorrow...

Calcium carbonate from the eggshells and acetic acid from the vinegar creates calcium acetate which is a gelling agent. It works on any type of alcohol, but yellow HEET is cheap, burns great and clean and it's easy to find.

>>649789
I thought you guys would like that.

>>649800
Probably. But if it were all that effective, I'd imagine you wouldn't be able to buy sterno in the first place. It burns slower and cooler than liquid alcohol, so the applications would be limited.

>>649807

>>649892
Think that's cool? Fuel tabs can be used to make RDX, the explosive component in plastique. Metalic sodium catches fire (or explodes) when it gets wet. So does magnesium, potassium and several others. Mixing chlorine bleach and oxygen bleach makes Gatorade.
>>
>>650243
It's actually embarrassingly easy to make explosives if you know what you're doing,
and I'm not just talking about dynamite.
The only reason people make anfo is because it's literally foolproof to make, and until recently was very easy to get a hold of the two ingredients. A quick stop to the garden store and the gas station, and you've got 20lbs of HE on your hands.

My organic chemistry teacher told me about one time a couple of his students "accidentally" made Picaric Acid, otherwise known as lyddite.
I say "accidentally", because the explanation they had was plausible, but not likely for two seniors to have made that particular mistake. I don't remember what the mistake was.

They quietly got rid of it before anyone else found out and started a shitstorm.

>>650318
Organic chemistry is a fascinating subject, made even more so by the "cool factor" of explosives, because hey... Explosions are cool.

Really, if you know how to do nitration, that's 90% of it.

Nitric acid will turn anything into explosives. Sawdust, glycerine, toluene, hexamine camping tablets, erythritol, urea, antifreeze, you name it.
>>
>>650545
Ice blue, actually.

Mixing chlorine bleach and oxygen bleach makes sodium chloride (salt), hydrogen dioxide (water), and dioxygen gas (air), so... electrolytes!

>>650617
That seems overly simplified. I tend to make a lot of weird and crazy shit, but every time I do, the first question I ask myself is "why doesn't everyone do this?" and if I can't think of a good reason not to do it, then I know I haven't thought it through very well.
>>
>>650651
Well, buying nitric acid will probably put you on some kind of watchlist, and nitration reactions have the potential to overheat if you don't keep them cooled down.

The main reason is probably that most people don't need to make high explosives at home, and the ones that do are mostly suicidal sand people that are willing to risk their asses on organic peroxides.

That's funny, I was just looking to see what the toxicology of different alcohols was, and came across an article about acetone peroxide. You'd have to be crazy and suicidal to want to make that. I didn't see a direct comparison, but it looked like nitroglycerin crystals may be more stable.

As long as you're not regularly buying gallons of it, you shouldn't have to worry about being put on a watchlist, but if you're really paranoid, you can make it with a computer psu and some water, then dry it with iirc epsom salt. Nurd Rage goes over it in one of his videos.

With a high enough current you can fuse nitrogen and oxygen molecules in the air into NOx which turns into nitric acid if you add it to water.

I don't know if that's what he's talking about though.
>>
>>651263
So you'd have to nitrogenate the water first or during, and then use electrolysis to rearrange the bonds? Seems complicated.

Isn't black powder still the easiest thing to make out of naturally sourceable materials? If I remember correctly it's just coal, sulphur and urea.

>At this point, I just want to see how long it takes for the thread to get pulled, lol.
>>
>>651356
Nah, just bubble NOx though water. Hydrogen peroxide if you want a higher yield. That's it.

For black powder, you need to make saltpeter, which is urea that bacteria have nitrated.

Traditional sources for this are guano caves, compost piles, and the "Swiss method" of pissing in hay and then leaving it out for a year or so.

I should probably mention that you can make a nitration solution by adding potassium nitrate (available as a food preservative) to sulfuric acid (available as drain cleaner.)

From there you could just make methyl nitrate and use some black powder percussion caps to set it off.

Or you could just make tannerite, which is actually legal, in addition to being safe, easy and cheap.
>>
>>649776
>Wow, that's a lot of residual fuel and pressure left in that tree.
Half inch pipe three feet long at full bottle pressure. That's a decent volume. It's awfully handy to use that way, and it lasts much, much longer if you turn the lantern down a bit.

I use the alcohol burner from a 1960s fondue set with alcohol when I'm backpacking. I'm thinking I'll design something that comes apart and lies flat and does a decent job of gassification when it's burning when I get time. I'm too damn busy now.
>>
>>638910
I've cooked on open fires, but I don't have experience with wood fired (light weight) stoves.
My best experience has been with white gas fired stoves. They weigh more, but I've found them to be more fuel efficient because compared to compressed gas blends white gas has more BTUs per unit of volume. I also like being able to check my fuel level and know exactly what I have remaining. Compared to my pocket rocket, my whisperlite sometimes took up less room in my pack because of the canisters. If I had a partial canister I HAD to take an extra because I had no way to tell how much was left. With my whisperlite I could simply top off the fuel bottle.

Best bang for buck? I'd probably go with a soda can stove that doesn't require a preheat burn, hardware cloth pot holder, and carbon felt or aluminum wind screen. It weighs practically nothing and can be built for less than $50 if you have to buy everything.
>>

Because it won't evaporate as the stove is cooling down, right.

is this even a thing? in my experience, all soda can stoves have to heat the fuel to vaporization temp before they begin to function properly. i haven't made EVERY type of soda can & cat food can stove but i've made several and they all start off slow then gradually begin heating efficiently as the fuel warms.

I made a soda can stove today and I saw a multitude of designs. I made one with 16 holes, and a hollow center. Is that type of design better than the penny/coin stove setup?

>>654933
The secret is aluminum foil.
>>
>>654992
Scoring the bottom of the can with a utility knife a couple of times generally gets it out pretty cleanly and easily.

I'm personally biased towards the sideburning design, because it's pressurized, doesn't require priming, and doesn't need a pot stand.
>>

>>
>>654992
Design should depend on the pot or pan you are using it with. I prefer the penny stove with jet pointed inwards for my pot >>655055 but the open-top side-jet design would be best for large fry pans. In general you want as much bottom coverage for even cooking without the flames/heat escaping around the sides.

I used a razor blade stuck in between pages in a heavy book at the appropriate height. Hold the can against it while rotating 3-4 times and you can usually pop it apart real clean, but I think i would be easier to just to use scissors if you can cut straight enough.

Any stove is dangerous as fuck if you're an idiot with it. Soda can stoves are no more dangerous than any other stove.

Since making the stove I saw some better techniques like the scoring and the stationary razor blade for cutting. The holes in the top are also too big. I'll probably use a push pin instead of an awl for the next one. The most trouble I had was getting the inner wall to properly fit the top segment properly. Cuts weren't really neat enough

Stuff's real neat. Only complaint I have is that the cup/bottle sits a little low on the stove, blocking the airflow. Maybe I'll add pack some wires or something to help with that.

>Looks dangerous as fuck
Naa, it's stable and "safe" as any other stove. I've used it dozens of times on all kinds of surfaces (pic related) and never even come close to having a spill.
That being said, check out my video of what would happen if it (or any other alcohol stove) DID get knocked over...

>Looks much safer
I remember watching the build video for the other stove you linked to and while it's indeed a work of art, it's construction is also overly complicated and time consuming, plus it's much more bulky and not nearly as packable as a simple water bottle stove.

I used a small (Starbucks double shot?) can alcohol stove for a while, but did most of my cooking over fire last year. It ended up getting crushed on my trip back, so I'm looking to make another. Has anyone seen/used hard can (axe, aluminium bottle) stoves? I think it would be a pretty negligible weight increase without the worry of it getting smooshed. Can it be made without a vice, maybe tapping it down with a hammer?
>>
>>655210
>>tapping it down with a hammer?
Yeah, place a block of wood on top to protect the aluminum then tap in a circle around the circumference - slowly - while making sure it's going together evenly.
>>
>>655238
That's what I was thinking, but is this hypothetical or have you done it? Not that it would be a major loss if it didn't work, I just want to know if I should buy a vice instead of just winging it.
>>
>>655240
Jeez... Never used an axe can (fuck that stinking shit) but I've made 6 water bottle stoves and used a block of wood + hammer on every one. It works great. When the neck piece bottoms out, stop hammering or it'll bow out the bottom and your stove will rock when in use. Also if the top edge doesn't mate exactly, you can turn it upside down on a large sheet of fine grit sandpaper then scrub it around in a circle until you have a perfectly flat rim to set your cooking vessel on.
>>
>>655254
I appreciate the quick reply and great advice.

I guess axe would make more of a supercat, since it doesn't have a neck anyway. Rereading that, context is important.

You said water bottle stove. Is this like the aluminium Budweiser bottles? Do you know what the ideal flame heighth is?
>>
I was thinking about packing pre-measured single serving packets of HEET with each meal in vacuum bags. Is this a horrible or awesome idea?

I think the bags would be solid enough, but if not, I risk contaminating my food. On the other hand, if the bags aren't puncture resistant, the food may not be good anyway.

An aluminum beer bottle will work but a dollar store aluminum water bottle (pic) is much thicker - stronger - more durable.

There's a shit load of vids showing the process for making one. Here's one that I picked at random:

http://youtu.be/dDMJs0lvlNw

He uses a dremel tool to cut the bottle but I found that a hacksaw also works good at making a smooth even cut - just work slowly. He also uses a dremel to notch the neck of the bottle - while I used a round file. You WILL need an electric drill with a 1/16 (or smaller) bit to drill the jets - a drill press really helps if you have access to one.

Take your time and be methodical if you want to do a neat professional looking job.
>>
>>655263
You've got to be trolling... that is the craziest thing I've seen on this board in a long while.
>>
>>655263
That's a pretty good idea, i might have to star doing that.

Until now i've been hiring a chopper to drop off cooking fuel for me at each meal stop, but its getting pretty expensive
>>
>>655273
Okay. I do see the advantages, but I want a narrower (beer) bottle because it'll keep the jets under my smaller cook pot better, resulting in less heat loss.

>>655277
Nope. I'm totally serious. I'm going to be thru-hiking and want to make sure I've got enough fuel for each meal, without carrying extra, so having one oz or so per meal means I won't run out between resupply points. But if there's a legitimate reason you think this is a bad idea (beyond crazy and obsessively anal), I'd love to hear it.
>>
>>655273
If you can mark it and drill it before you cut it, you'll have a neater piece of work because it'll be supported better during the drilling.
>>
>>655284
well, having a flammable liquid that is easily ruptured next to everything you need in the outdoors seems like a bad idea to many of us.

Take a hint from the packaging people...have you ever seen denatured alcohol stored in a plastic bag and shipped? Just pack a measured amount in a sturdy bottle and feel secure in the knowledge that you may have extra. There are other places to save weight...ones that may not ruin your trip.
>>
>>655354
Wouldn't an oz of alcohol evaporate if left in a large bag?
>>
>>655030
Thanks for the tip. I'll keep it in mind the next time I intend to use it.

I have this piece of shot and cant cook for shit on it. Flame always dies. Decided to get a 6$ one you screw into the canisters. Muxh better and smaller

If you fall down, you will likely open the ziplock bags and put your fuel directly into your food. People do fall down occasionally.
>>
>>656245
Are you legitimately retarded? You're supposed to pump them up first, dumbass, then turn the air intake lever down, let it burn for a minute, then turn the lever back up. After that, it'll burn until the tank is empty.

No, they improved it with a self cleaning needle.
You can buy a new svea 123r for about $100usd still made in sweden. The only thing that got cheaper was the handle for the cup on top.
