The Halcon Stove

Alan Halcon is the inventor of the Halcon stove, a very cool alcohol-buring backpacking stove which can be made from a single aluminum can. We spent several hours Sunday night making stoves and enjoying great friendship. I can't wait to go backpacking again and use this stove! It is terrific! One thing I really like about this stove is that it will work without a stand. While a stand is a good idea, you can put a small pot directly on top of the stove. I won't attempt to explain how to make the stove: detailed instructions can be found at Alan's website at
