LOL, :lol:

Of course, I would have first guessed you had a older Primus stove or a German field cooker but since you were out for a day trip then a Esbit seems more practical.

I'm curious do you still have that very early MRE heater for your Iltis wagon? I bought one off eBay some years ago but its still packed up, I'm waiting for a excellent reason to break it out and use it. :mrgreen:

Of course - and I still use it when ever possible.

Did you modify it for 12 Volts or do you have a 24V outlet in your iltis?

As it´s a military vehicle, it has 24V.

I'm going to try that with a Dutch FRH, wearing protective face-mask and/or goggles. And the victim will be a Latvian 250g can of pork with buckwheat. The art of the possible! :idea:

It works. No problem. Maybe not as much if outside in 12 degrees. It works anyway, depending on conditions.
