Turn Trash Into a Backpacking Stove

In this video I demonstrate how to convert a random trashed pop can into an improvised alcohol stove for backpacking, hiking, camping etc.

Back Story: So I hit the trail the other day with the intention of having some wild leeks and ramen noodles for lunch. When I got to a good spot to park things to eat, I realized that I left my alcohol stove at home. Lucky for me I was able to find someone else’s trash pop can and convert it into an improvised alcohol stove using my multitool.

Alcohol backpacking stoves are very simple to make and come in endless varieties. Add this one to your list of things to try soon!

Next time I will be sure to remember to pack my favorite alcohol stove.
