1 Backpacking Peanut Can Stove
1 small can sterno (found at the grocery store)
matches
pot holder

Directions:
Now that the stove has been made, use it on the next weekend backpacking trip!

To set up the stove, place the open can of small sterno on a level, fire safe surface. Place the peanut can stove on it. Then carefully place your pot on the stove.

Once done cooking, use a potholder to move the stove off of the sterno. Place the sterno lid carefully on the sterno can. This will help extinguish the flame. Be careful as the sterno flame can sometimes be hard to see.

Always assume that both the stove and the sterno can are hot when handling them during and after cooking.

Be sure to allow the stove and the sterno can to completely cool down before packing them. Sterno can will fit inside of the stove can. Use the lid to cover the can to make packing easy and take up less space.

Sterno may take a little extra time to cook, but you can easily cook as you normally would on an weekend backpack trip.
