Fire Safety: Alcohol vs. ESBIT

Postby Hikin_Jim » Mon May 06, 2013 6:02 pm

This past week, we had a bit of a preview of what fire season might look like this summer. :( Not good.

Alcohol stoves are super light weight, cheap, and popular -- but are they safe?

On my blog, I take a quick look at alcohol vs. ESBIT, examining the technical aspects as well as the USFS regulations. In addition, I talk about some basic safety considerations. Have a look if you like:

Good explanation of so many nuances.
I hate lawyer-ese that makes it impossible for me to figure out how to comply with regulations.

BTW, What does ESBIT stand for again? I missed it somehow.
