I was sorting through my camping gear and grabbed my twig gasifier stove and was thinking about the pot stand. The old one was a ring made out of steel diamond mesh sheet and I had to make a new one and I used 1/16 solid aluminum sheet that forms a X over the stove. It got me thinking about the melting point of aluminum and the temperatures of a wood fire. Was wondering if anyone knows if it would melt while boiling water, cooking something in a pan or prolonged cooking? Haven't used it yet to cook on just started a fire to see how the flames licked the pot. My other stoves that have aluminum stands aren't directly in the flames and the ones that are are made from stainless. I can't believe I never thought of this before now. Figured I should find out before I get out there only to end up melting it.
