Mad Jack Tramper: Hi.
Just one point for you, the BCB mug has two lid options, the first one is
the plastic drinking lid with aperture for drinking hot liquids at one end
and vacume relief hole at the other end, the second is a metal boiling and
cooking lid that sits in the top of the mug and has a fold down lifting
ring in the centre.
The drinking lid was never designed to be used as a cover while boiling
water or cooking.
Don't feel stupid though, EVERYBODY uses the drinking lid and then
complains that it melts.
Cooking lids are not cheep though, the solution is to make your own with a
bit of aluminium plate and a ring tab for hanging pictures.
Army mess tins are great for cutting up to make all kinds of mug lids, and
pound land sells them for,,,,,,,,,,,yup, a pound :-) they also sell the
ring tabs in packs.
I hope this helps, keep the videos coming.
Kind regards, Jack.
gaz lyno: Discovered that problem with the triangia burner and the BCB stove. I was
thinking about making my own bars which will stand slightly taller to
prevent the flames from being smothered. Any other ideas I'd be glad to
hear from you. :)
Herbert Diaz: SIMPLE EASY TO USE CHEAP EVEN!!
Thereal111t: Plus methanol destroys in coated aluminium.
Alloutdoor1: which stove are you talking about?
megasimon999: So can you put this into a direct wood fire flame? or in embers? never mind
you answered it in the last few seconds:)
leejones001: Can you use the alcohol in the crusader without the burner? i cant see why
it wouldnt work.
Alloutdoor1: @machinesayno I have recently bought the vargo stove (xe) it fits!!
Reginald Andrews: Nice vid, have adapted my Crusader cook unit, meths burner is shoe polish
tin with 12mm fire rope coiled up inside covered with grill made from old
sieve, beauty of it is that it all packs away inside the unit.
Slash28ACR: Cheers mate great vid.
wkingbg: Can't find the same vanger alcohol stove on their website. Where can I get
Jez Brown: you can also use gel fuel in the small cup at the bottom
gillisledoux007: @leejones001 A cat food stove with methyl hydrate works the best for me,
and the bottom of the kit works as a wind screen too.
Alloutdoor1: @machinesayno Thanks mate. If the vargo triad is shorter in height than the
alcohol stove i use, then it should work without the extra stand (that i
made).Not sure about that though. As for carrying around extra fuel in the
actual stove, i have found that the seals are never that good and tend to
leak. I would definitely suggest buying a small purpose built fuel bottle,
unless you dont mind smelling like an alcoholic lol. The one in my video is
made by vargo. Hows the weather out there??
jason hullihen: why not just fill the cup in the cooker and light it why do you need that
Alloutdoor1: @protuberant Thanks for the tips. Will try and keep them in mind. Am now
using a modified vargo stove with a cotton insert. Saying that, the system
i was using in this video wasnt half bad. I must admit there was a strong
whiff of alcohol when using it which, as you say, hints at the inefficiency
of the stove. Could i cook on it easily, yes. Cheers!
jason hullihen: @Alloutdoor1 i would still try..? just because the little holes are in the
thing you use does not mean it burns any longer i would bet that the open
container the same size would burn just as long,. or it seems to me like it
should work.. in thery at least.. not to hassle you just some thing i bet
if you tryed would amaze you..
Alloutdoor1: @drivin69 Not using the stove will mean you need to use 2 to 3 times more
fuel to do the same job. Its just much more efficient.
Alloutdoor1: Cool. Its a good stove!
SouthSaturnDelta1: Nice one, One of the best little reviews I've seen on gear.I like the
modifications you've made as well.
wkingbg: Trangia - sorry, dang autocorrect! I found it and ordered, should be here
Trailtraveller: There is a metal lid available for the crusadercup canteenshop has them I
Sammy Ray Khalil: Good stuff keep up the good work
Alloutdoor1: @ginners2002 BCB do not make a metal lid for this unfortunately. Some
people fashion a lid out of aluminium foil which i believe is very
effective. Personally, i tend not to cook with this on an open wood fire, i
prefer to use an aluminium mess tin for that purpose. Also, i like being
able to see when the water is boiling. Cheers.
ginners2002: Any chance of a metal lid for the cup instead of the peice of plastic?
protuberant: @Alloutdoor1 Thanks for the vid! Because alcohol needs at least 1.25 inch
clearance for effective combustion, your use of the mod grill and Trangia
knockoff would not likely give you the top fuel efficiency. You can try
putting fiberglass or carbon felt in the ring, and it will boost the
alcohol's efficiency and cut the boiling time. You can check the efficiency
by smelling for the fume incomplete combustion gives off.
Alloutdoor1: Yes absolutely - will work equally well with gel fuel.
machinesayno: Good review. My kit is coming this week, was wondering if I could use it
with a trangia type stove. I don't really wanna have to modify anything
though, maybe the vargo triad might work better? I do like the fact that
you can store alcohol in the stove when your on the move though. Thanks.
Alloutdoor1: @leejones001 Yes you can use alcohol without the burner, its just much less
efficient to do it like that - i have tried. You would probably be better
off using alcohol gel (in thise green sachets). Hope that helps. Cheers!
megasimon999: So can you put this into a direct wood fire flame? or in embers?
