    Every man should have a stove he can carry in his hat.

    Those are some really neat cooking thingies. What happened to adding insect repellant to peanut butter in the little c-ration can it came in. That cooked a nice meal. right, Old Sarge and you other old vets?

    Our idea of roughing it was when the ice cream machine broke.

    Yeah, you bubbleheads. I tour a fast attack oin Norfolk one time and I couldn't wait to get off. They didn't even close that hatch let alone get underway. I'm not clausta ... claustr .... afraid of tight speces.

    Just a tip for making tin can stoves. If your looking for larger size cans than you typically get with home size food products, check with your local restaurants. They use products that come in a verity of larger sizes. Ask them to hold a few for you.

    I can't really say it is an "unusual" stove, but I really like this little set-up in my walkabout bag.

    Uses a gas canister, but is light and compact. Also have an igniter attached that is fairly easy to use with gloves. I have used it a few times this year to make coffee or soup while hunting or just walking around the woods. The entire kit cools off fairly fast, so you don't have to wait a long time to stow it. I have used my current canister probably 7 times and it still has enough fuel in the canister for probably 10 more cups of coffee. Boils water in about 4 min (true roiling boil). If you watch, you can buy the set-up for way less than the list price.

    AFlineman - I have that stove as well, and it is a good performer. I like the Snow Peak line of products, very good quality.

    I will add the stove to the list on page one. Thanks...

    pgv et. al. ... I've been looking at light, compact, natural fuel stoves for awhile now trying to evaluate / decide from descriptions, videos, other reviews, etc from this site and other websites. Maybe someone posted earlier, but I find it hard to beat the Little Bug Wood Burning Stove for compact, light weight, and folds flat. Compared to some other similar models, the price is very competitive as well. If any one can show good reason why this man should not wed this product, please speak now ... :} Thanks!

    The LittleBug looks like a good little stove, but a bit spendy for me. http://www.littlbug.com/

    Yeah, what he said. $60 is a bit much for me to burn sticks.

    Thanks for your comments Maineman, and yes the stove is on the list on page one.

    As far as cost goes, we'll all pony-up the money if want something bad enough - who are we kidding!
