    what you need is an empty dog food can (large) and a wire coat hanger..............

    clean the empty can and remove the label.....make two holes one inch down from the top opposite each other .....

    cut the coat hanger with wire cutters so you can straiten the wire out and then attach one end threw one off the holes and bend it into a hook shape and then twist it against it self to stop it coming undone.......then shape the wire into a hoop shape and put the remaining end of the wire threw the other hole in the can and twist to stop it coming out ...................you should now have a can with a handle to carry it with .............to insulate the handle to stop if from burning you when you lift the pot out of the fire wrap some string/paracorde around the middle section of the handle (a hands width)...............this is a real simple cook pot for two people plus it saves your miss,s screaming at you for burning her best pots and pans when out in the woods.........................matt
