Anyone made bread of any sort with theirs? I was going to do a test of some bannock tonight after work while I am cooking up some burgers on the grill in the back yard. Trying to decide if I should use the regular stove or the simmering one.

*Edit - I made some this evening with the regular stove and a little 7" pan I have. Just flour, baking powder, salt and water. It cooked FAST, talking under 5 minutes! If I hadn't been watching it I would have burned it badly, as it is it got a few dark spots on both sides. I made it a little too thick and the middle wasn't 100% done but it was hot all the way through and I actually liked the consistency of the middle with the slight crispiness of the outside.

When I go to do it again tomorrow, I will just occasionally lift the pan up and am also going to try it on the simmer stove. My very picky sons both ate it up very quickly which is a good sign.

How do you add more fuel when the stove is still lit? Can you simply pour more from the Heet bottle? That sounds like a bad idea. (Pouring on more fuel, not the stove.)

That is a bad idea. I have played with squeezie bottles with the flip up lid that will squirt a fine stream. Even that gets messy with burning alcohol getting all over. Best to just let it burn out, add more, then relight---the stove will be warm and will begin generating quickly.

Okay, thanks. I also notice that it is hard to see the flame at times in this sort of stove. People should make sure its definitely out before adding more.

If you lift the pot off the stove, at the end you'll see the alcohol boiling in the bottom.

Okay, I read about 20 pages, but I didn't see a follow up to someone's question about a metal ring to block some of the holes. It sounds like a great idea....some sort of band which can be rotated to block 1/3, or 1/2 of the holes, in order to lower the temp. Was there any more on this topic?

Thanks!

Some guys I think have made their own, it's not something I plan on. The aluminum bottles I use to make these stoves have changed; I have a couple cases left and that might be the end of it---I'm not sure a this point.

Consider using aluminum water bottles. They work just as well and are heavier gauge material. I pick them up for $1 a piece at the Quartzsite flea market. They are rejects from the company that prints company logos on them.
