The Hobo Stove

Hobo Stoves are popular for a reason: They are cheap, light weight and extremely fuel efficient....plus they can be improvised out of nearly anything. 
To put it simple: A hobo stove is a can with holes at the bottom allowing air to be drawn into the fire resulting in a lot of heat emerging on top. 


Super hot flame with a minimum of fuel.


Take a can, any can over 500 ml in volume will do.

My tool for the job: The Hacksaw Survival Knife

Cut min. 4 flaps on top and bottom and fold them inward.

Place fuel at the bottom and set on fire.

The reason for cutting holes at both end becomes evident when you
place a pot on top of it: Without these holes the fire dies.
