Behold the Hobo Stove or at least our version of it.

We made it out of a 800 grams beans can, because this was the largest can we had. The cooking surface was still kind of small and at first we tried to put our 2 liter pan directly on top of the can, but that caused the fire to die out quickly. So, we got inventive and made a stone construction around it. It worked great! We used to have a hard time boiling water on the campfire, but using this stove makes it very easy.

Just make sure you keep feeding it with twigs and small wood.

Thanks Claire and Derek for the tip!
