This looks like a fun DIY experiment for your next camping trip. All you need is a drill, 1″ bit and length of firewood. The video above does a good job of explaining the process, but to summarize:

  1. Cut a 14″ piece of firewood.
  2. Drill down into firewood with a 1″ drill bit.
  3. Drill an intersecting hole in the middle of the firewood.
  4. Place small rocks on top of log (or pound in nails) to hold a pot above the hole.
  5. Ignite!
