Super Cat Alcohol Stove (4092 words)
The Super Cat’s pressure chamber, on the other hand, is created simply by placing a pot on top of the stove, thereby blocking the ability of the expanding gas to escape through the top, forcing the flames out through the vent holes on the sides.
The Super Cat is extremely lightweight and you don’t want it to blow over while burning, possibly spilling flaming alcohol on you or your equipment.
Bacardi 151 could therefore be used as a fuel for the Super Cat, but only in non-pressurized mode using a separate pot stand (three tent stakes placed around the stove at the proper distances and heights work well as pot supports).

Since that time, the SUPER CAT, judging from the continuing feedback that I've received through a variety of means, seems to have become the most popular build-it-yourself alcohol stove in use today.
