    Honestly I can’t say I’m surprised. I imagine it’s hard to keep an outfitter afloat these days unless it’s located on the doorstep of a major recreational area like in North Conway or Boulder CO.

    When they moved to Branford, we fixed their managers car. I told him it was hard to find good stuff with them now, they had turned into a boutique. He agreed but said it was hard to compete with on-line sales. Then they changed to 'Denali' and added a few stores and started carrying gear again...........now they are gone. Unfortunate.

    I use a bit of Armor-all, or other silicone lubricant. Vaseline or other petroleum-based lubricants can affect the rubber o-ring in the stove. Better to use silicone or wax. I also keep my stove in a baggie to keep it clean, and use the cap that comes with the canister. Seems to me the things that are most likely to go wrong with good canister stoves would be caused by dirt.

    Be careful when extending the pot supports on the BRS3000T stove. I'll try to do a video soon on how to extend them. Do not force the supports open against each other and do not use large diameter pots. Be sure to center pot onto supports.Max size pot should be 700ml capacity. The stove is awsome when used correctly. A 25 gram stove....whoda thunkit!

    Also, be sure to purchase only from BRS on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/BRS-BRS-3000T.../dp/B06XNLSNFR

    DO NOT PURCHASE FROM EBAY

    I have found outfitters in AT trailtowns sell these for $1 to $2 more than elsewhere...usually around $6 for the small.

    Why wouldn’t the 1.6L Stowaway pot from MSR work on the BRS?

    With food/other in the pot, it probably weighs too much?

    Just a different opinion here regarding lubing canister threads, but I would caution against lubricating canister threads with anything. No stove manufacturer's manual that I've seen suggests that any thread lubrication is necessary. Oil, grease, wax, etc. are not just dirt magnets, which is bad enough, they can themselves contaminate and/or block the VERY small orifices (about 1/100th inch) in the stove valve/regulator, and could render the stove inoperable. And eventually, whatever substance is put on the threads gets forced up nearer those small passages in the internal valve assembly.

    Yes, that's better. Make sure pot is centered and on a level surface.

    Hold the stove upside down when extending the pot supports and hold upside down when retracting them. Place into small provided stuff sack right side up. Stuff sack will help keep stove threads clean.

    Yes, those are the ones she got. Not top of the Leki line but they were decent......the flip lock is excellent. The grip irritates when sweaty and a tip fell off. I had to find 2 rocks and recrimp the end get it to hold.

    I’ve had them get wet and rust, which causes them to gall on the aluminum threads of the stove. Now I give them a light coat of grease and use the plastic cover they are sold with. Gives some corrosion resistance and keeps them clean.

    I have a BRS 3000 but now that hiking partners all switched back to alcohol and complain about my noise it looks like I'm headed back to the intrepid Starlyte and ss screen stand.It's quiet,dependable,and you always know how much fuel you have left.
