Ammo can camp stove


When I was in Cub Scouts I remember making a charcoal help by taking coffee can and using a can opener. You would make some holes and put the charcoal in the coffee can. You added fire starter but the charcoal would heat up faster with the coffee can. You would use some tongs to take the coffee can off then spread the charcoal round and to some BBQing.


Looks like a waste of a purfictly good ammo can to me. What I have is a small stainless steel mess kit and a stainless steel coffee pot to heat water in.
My dad started the charcoal using a piece of stove pipe. He made spacers to let the air into the bottom by screwing three short pieces of window curtain rail to the sides extending about an inch below the bottom of the pipe. They made tripod legs.

He put a piece of baling wire across two holes in the top of the pipe so he could lift it off using the poker.
