This is a follow up from a video I did with my buddy Survivor Johnny awhile back. This video gives a step by step instruction on how to make is New Survival Stove design. Don't miss this as it is a really efficient, safe, cheap, and cool design. Watch and enjoy.

No problem.

Thanks for sharing that. A couple things that weren't covered- What kind of alcohol are you using? Is it 100% fiberglass insulation or is it a mix like ecowool?

I will have to check with Survivor Johnny on the kind of alcohol. I know he usually uses denatured alcohol. The fiberglass insulation is just pink attic fiberglass insulation. No ecowool is mixed.

Hope this helps and thanks for asking.

Just a quick question....why is it called a survivor stove?

I'm guessing because Survivor Johnny made it.:innocent:

It's a backpacking stove to me.
It would be good if you were trying to hide and you'd leave less of a trace than my survivor stove (fire).

Just a quick question....why is it called a survivor stove?

Honestly, two reasons.
One, it is made from trash and can be duplicated easily in a survival situation. As long as you had a flammable liquid.
Two, because Survivor Johnny made it. :nod:

Cool, thanks, just wondering, seems a little material specific, might be hard to scrounge a cat food tin.

Made a few "penny stoves", and worked OK,..... but yeah, you still need fuel of some sort, might be hard to scrounge as well.......

I used "Heat" fuel additive in the north, might be hard to find in the south, and you would need a hardware store, Drug store or what ever to come up with alcohol.

Most booze won't burn, unless its Ever-clear or real high proof.
Like the "no spill feature"......Oh and don't add fuel when it's still burning, hard to see in sunlight.
