Hobo Stoves

These are the cooking stoves we used on a survival trip we took our teen students. As you can see, my friend Chris is passed out, and I’m keeping warm. But hell do they work!

Here are the general instructions:

you take a large can, and cut in 6 holes, 3 on the bottom half of the cylinder, 3 on the top half. Between the bottom half and the top half, you place a screen that’s shaped to fit the inside of the cylinder. Punch a couple holes into the can near this mesh and tie the mesh in with wire, so that it’s laying flat, paralleling the bottom of the can. This will keep the mesh in place, as you will be burning the wood in the top half on the can, allowing for air to enter through the bottom. Make a tripod and hang your pot from it!

All you need now are small sticks, and there you go! A supreme cooking fire. (Picture my Marissa)
