I just couldn't justify blowing $80 for a tiny little stove. It seems like more of a novelty. I hardly camp where I cannot have a campfire so I don't have a lot of need for something like this. But, it's nice to have gear. Call me a gear *****, I care not. My Bushbuddy clone is made from a free paint can with a progresso soup can for the inner liner and some 1/2x1/2 mesh. Total cost = free. I can build a ton of these for $80. Besides, using something you made yourself is more satisfying than just going out and dropping cash on over priced gear.

I got instruction from a few different sources on Youtube. Just search "DIY Bushbuddy".
