Thanks to Titanium Goat miracle foil!
I made my own cone, to fit a Tibetan 1,1l pot and added an inferno-like insert. ConeLayout for design, scissors, Dremel for the harder job and hole punch for the easy holes...
Tested and approved last week in Brittany.

Burning fast:

Insert:

The grate uses 2 metal rods, same method as pot support (2 tent pegs)

The whole lot, unfolded:

And folded for transport:

Titanium foil being very resilient, it can be rolled very tight, and snaps easily back into shape.

The cone is just high enough to be used with a flatish ordinary can stove; It weights around 1.3 oz (35 gr)...

Wow, titanium foil, do you have to put a tissue on it to keep it from blowing away in the wind?:)

I plan to keep the pot on as long as possible!
In case of really strong wind and no shelter, one or two pegs inserted into the ground via bottom holes could help, but cooking on a wood stove in such conditions would certainly be no fun mad .
