Leave no flammable paper or glue on the can. Make sure that the can has one end in tact, and one end completely gone. If necessary, finish removing one end with a can opener.
Using a circular container (that is the size in terms of height of the stove you want to build) as your frame, first ensure that it has an opening at the top. Place it where you want to build the stove then around it build a mound of mud made out of clay soil. Ensure that the mound has a groove or tunnel running its length from the container. This tunnel provides the entrance through which fuel is added to the stove. Give the mound time to start drying and remove the container.
Clay can withstand very high temperatures thus making for a good stove.
you dig a whole about hafe a foot deep and start a fire not a big one just a small one then you take three or four stick and lay them on top and you start cooking
well first you have to dig up the ground depending how big the meal your cooking. if its alot of food then you might want to dig a big hole. The half way to the top, you might want to put something that will hold up the food in order to get cooking. and underneath, you can start a small fire. once its all heated up you can put ur meal and start cooking, and at the top you can cover it so that circulation is inside.
