The Best Form of Flattery

Imitation is the best form of flattery as they say, and I was definitely flattered when fellow blogger JJ Mathis from JERMM'S Outside contacted me recently inquiring about the little titanium solid fuel stove in my Trail Cooking with Minimal Fuel post. I gave her a tip or two, told her where I had purchased the titanium, and a couple of weeks later she sent me a photo of her version of the stove (featured below).
I had been using a Trail Designs Gram Cracker solid fuel stove for a long time with very good results. Their three piece design utilizes a main body with removable wings that stick up to hold the fuel cube. The reason for the removable wings is so you can place them low for one cube, or high for two cubes stacked on top of each other. Since I never use more than one fuel cube at a time, even when cooking for two people, the removable wings only added complexity for me. The one thing that has always bugged me about the design is the fact that the residue from the Esbit runs down into the slot that the wings fit into, creating a little extra work to scrape it off or the wings start to not fit right. Since I'm always tinkering with making my own gear, I set out to make my own one piece version of the stove, and have been using it for about a year now. JJ Mathis saw it in the post I mentioned above, has since published a great MYOG post showing exactly how she made her own, and dammit if she didn't do a better job than me! ;-)
You can check out her MYOG Solid Fuel Stove post for yourself. Nice job JJ!
