    I'm looking for an alcohol heater that would run 8 hours. It appears HeatMate 5200 and the Dometic Origo 5100 are no longer made. Anyone have any ideas for an 8 hour run time? Walmart has an Origo 5100 but that appears to be the last of the stock. A DDG search revealed multiple sites are out of...

    I plan on buying a wood cookstove. However, at the present, I'm in a situation which makes it impossible. I have seen the alcohol burning cookstoves (non pressurized) on ebay which are used on boats. It seems these might be a great way to cook if the shtf anytime soon and I'm without power...

    With an indoor grill (element taken out), empty tea light candle holder and alcohol, you can boil a can of water within 12 minutes and even cook a larger meal. :) Here is the link for my bucket shower thread. :)

    This denatured alcohol stove review has a bit of a twist to it that I hope will help out those who may be considering an alcohol stove as their cooking system during a survival or disaster situation. The alcohol stove has been a must have for backpackers looking for an ultra-lightweight packing...

    I got this at a yard sale. (I know, a little fancy for camping gear) for $3. So if it doesn't work, oh well. It's made by Wm A Rogers. Not sure if it is silver plate or stainless or what. It has an alcohol stove with an adjustable flame. Inside was some white batting that I think is called...

    Thanks to, I had the chance to look at the Vargo Titanium Triad Alcohol Stove and Vargo Titanium Sierra 750 Cup. Overall, I thought it was a pretty good combination. The stove is super lightweight, weighing only about 1 ounce. Here are some of the specs. • Weight: 1.0 oz. (28...

    I have not seen anyone else build a stove exactly like this so I thought I would share. In the first picture you can see some of my experiments. Some worked, most were failures. Some were slap dash but even when I followed reputable instructions my stoves did not work well. I am not...

    91% Alcohol sold in Wal-Mart (by the rubbing alcohol and bandaids) for $1.38 16 fl oz (473 ml). There’s an expiration date on the bottle. Mine says 06/2010. I bought a great little backpacking-type stove on eBay, which is just a tin with a lid and a hole in it for $3.59 + 2.35 shipping. It’s...

    I have all kinds of cookstoves,...from antiques to modern. But when I saw this one, I had to give it a try. It is constucted out of two soda cans, or in my case beer cans.:D Total weight,...less than an ounce. With 2 oz of 70% isopropyl alcohol I was able to bring 2 cups of cold water to a boil...
