I followed the instructions to the max. Could NOT get 2 cups to boil using 1/2 ounce of fresh denatured alcohol.
It was around 45 degrees air and water temp. I tried three days in a row this past weekend. No boil.
Skidds -----------I did make one mistake, I peeked through one of the holes in the windscreen. I now believe in stove gremlins. It's their faultIt's rude and it angers the stove gremlins.
After being a little perterbed with the little fellows i resorted to the Hobo elite stove and burned dry twigs.
