View Full Version : twig fire & teapot setup... my way!
sometimes all you need is a small twig fire, just enough to boil a cup of water and heat up your cold fingers; it sure was enough for me today.
i just wanted a quick, hot cup of chocolate; i had my esbit stove with me (i almost allways do), but i choosed not to use it. i lit a small fire and used a very simple support for my teapot - i never saw anybody else to do it, so i think it might be of interest... here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hs_M4aEE4KE . enjoy! :D
Now that's a neat idea, thanks for sharing it with us :)

stacked twigs between 3diagonal pegs nice neat setups, I do a bigger version in my camp for long term cooking. cheers.
Another way is to use 3 metal tent pegs.
good video thanks :)
nice video, simple and to the point as always thanks for sharing
Great idea mate! Never used that one!!.. Defiantly gonna give it a try next time in up the woods! Thanks for sharing mate :)
I love the way you almost appologize for using matches! :)
I'm a big fan of small fires. A small fire warms you, cooks for you and doesn't need as much tending and if stacked right at night can easily be re-kindled in the morning.
A large fire is great for a group as long as the group gathers the fuel!
You tube hasn't made this video available for mobile users ! :(
Nice one, good idea. :)
I've used 3 large nails before with hexi blocks underneath rather than wood. It works well enough. :)
@udamiano, nomad, hillbill: apparently i discovered the warm water... :thinkerg:
@mesquite, dreadhead, cowboy: thank you, i'm glad that you like the vid!
@widu13: right on, my friend! small fire = less fuel = less effort = happy camper :D
@chiseller: youtube is mean! :cussing:
Great video, thanks for sharing
another great video, a nice a quick set up for a quick brew and a bit of warmth. :You_Rock_
It is generally not used as if you needed heat for longer than the twig burn for you risk a self extinguishing fire and no brew at all.
