Alcohol Coleman-like stove?

Sooo... an idea popped into my head the other day...

Alcohol stove(s) designed after the Coleman two burner-like stove (y'know, the 10 lb. beasts that run on propane tanks and are common car camping companions).

Basically, just two little alky stoves with an oversized pot support that covers two stoves at once and lets you put a couple pots on to boil at once. Primarily, this idea came to be after thinking about a trek around Rainier planned for later this summer. NOTE: The remainder of this post can be read by logging in.

Well, the alternative setup I have now weighs 23 oz. without fuel and just one pot.

Well, an UL grilling grate would make for a great frame sheet. NOTE: The remainder of this post can be read by logging in. For free PBF membership click here

You can still get folding two-burner Sterno stoves. These are pretty heavy but are very stable. For NOTE: The remainder of this post can be read by logging in. For free PBF membership click here
