BCB Crusader Cooking Set - For Camping Hiking Survival Bushcraft Etc




What do you think about this video?

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. :)

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.

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 it??

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 little stove.???

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 tmrw.

Trailtraveller: There is a metal lid available for the crusadercup canteenshop has them I believe.

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?
