A easy and inexpensive stove, made from recycled materials.

Traditionally a large coffee tin was used, back when the didn't have boxboard sides or made from plastic. Any large tin can will do.

Also known as a "Hobo Stove". I'm not sure what the politically correct term would be, but these items are a throw back to when these terms were part of our acceptable language.

How To Make A Buddy Burner / Vagabond Stove (BSA Troop 2)

Make-it and Take-it Hobo Stove (Mother Earth News, March/April 1984)


The fuel for inside this type of stove was traditionally a Buddy Burner, made from a tuna can, cardboard, and wax. Another great recycled item project! Other small burners will work too.
