2015-01-17 cat can stove Walmart grease pot
Wilma and I went hiking in a nearby forest preserve. We stopped at a picnic shelter to see how my Walmart grease pot works for heating up water on a cat can stove I made. The grease pot is a little large, but the size means I can store a nice sized plastic coffee mug (handle removed) inside it. The coffee and tea fixings go in bag inside the plastic mug. The whole thing fits nicely in a gallon ziplok bag. I like that the pot has a handle on it. The cat can stove worked OK but I think it might work better with a pot stand. I read a few articles about them on the Internet that suggested aluminum cans work better than steel cans. Mine is steel because I thought it would hold up better.
