Backpackers love to find easy ways to cut weight from their packs. So they can’t carry a big cookstove.

You can create your own cookstove using alcohol and coke can. Of course, you can buy a mini stove on the market, but for the price, the DIY stove version is hard to beat.

First, what you need is a bottom part of a coke can pin a few holes to pour the alcohol in later. (Like pictures below)

We need to cut another bottom of the can, put some cotton swab inside and mix them together.

Then we pin more holes around the can to let the fire come out from those holes.

Last, we pour some alcohol in, then when we are ready to cook, we just use lighter… Here we go!!
