The Kelly Kettle

The Kelly Kettle is an ingenious alternative to building a roaring camp  fire just to boil a pot of water for coffee or tea.  The basic idea behind it is that you light a small fire in the base using whatever is at hand (twigs, leaves,newspaper, etc.) and
place the kettle on the base.  The kettle is essentially a normal kettle with a Chimney in the middle, surrounded by a water jacket (see right).  Produced by the same Irish family for four generations, it should be pretty well de-bugged by now.  Bonus McGuiver tip: Use alcohol based antibacterial gel as a firestarter LINK:   Kelley Kettle
