The Kelly Kettle is great!

Cooking on shore can have limits when open fires are restricted. We use a Kelly Kettle to boil water and heat a pot of "whatever". It is a double walled aluminum kettle. There is a "pot rack" that sits on the chimney to heat an additional pot. Fuel is small sticks. It is even self regulating because when the water boils it spills into the fire "box" reducing the heat. When we want to boil a liter of water for 40 minutes it is perfect. We use it to "prepare" freeze dried meals. The pot rack allows us to heat anything from a coffee pot to a frying pan. NO OPEN FIRE!
