    Kent Lufkin Remember when you could remember everything?

    Beer isn't worth the weight penalty for me, especially warm beer. But bourbon, scotch or rum? Now that's another matter!

    Plus one on that, Kent!! Maybe a cigar or two as a chaser.

    I've got one. It doesn't get used as much as I'd like but it's great. I mostly got it to take camping on my motorcycle.
    Fire started can easily be kept in the chimney part. I keep a ziplock of pitchy wood shavings in it.

    Now that BioIite is one cool geek tool. The Kelly is pretty big. For a more conventional small tinder-kindling wood fired stove that folds flat, hammock forum community members like the Emberlit.

    Looks interesting, but the fire's clearly not contained within the stove. I wonder if it's legal where there are open flame restrictions? Not, mind you, that I'm touting the Kelly over anything else. Once you get your cookset weighed out, it's no longer light.

    If you want a smokeless fire, use willow branches if they're available.

    If you are looking for a lighter version of the Kelly Kettle, check out a product called the Backcountry Boiler. Something like 8 oz, made from aluminum. Think the guy who makes them might be sold out now, but more should be in "this summer."
