For all of you tea light stove users out there, I found something today that works well as an open burner but has a larger capacity (yet a narrow, focused flame). It's a miniature wash bucket for doll houses that I found at Hobby Lobby. Here's more info:

LOL! Oddly enough dollhouses are not listed in your profile along with:

* Backpacking
* Fly Fishing
* Mountain Biking
* DIY Gear
* Guitar

From the title, I visualized a galvanized wash tub with four inch holes in the sides and 5 gallons of methyl alcohol in the bottom of it. The flame would be about 24 to 30 inches at the base and several feet tall. Don't light that stove indoors.

Well... hmm... it's sure tempting to try....... I can just picture the giant blue flame in my instructional youtube video of how to build and light it... and I could be the only guy on the block cool enough to have 5 gallon boil times to brag about... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

What would be the amount of freezer bag meals you could prepare? You better invite plenty of guests.
