I have an old Coleman single burner backpacking type stove where the burner sits on top of the bottle. Would that be hot enough?
Anything special about the pot or ladle? Any type of metal works?

I have heard folks using a soup can so really anything will work. The only real problems with smaller camp stove types are wind...any little breeze can make it take forever to heat up.

I think it's Lyman that makes a cast iron casting pot to set in a campfire or hang over it.

I actually saw a Lee Precision pot like the one described here. Now, I've looked at so many web sites for casting supplies today that I can't remember where I saw it.

I would imagine that if you go get the smallest "dutch oven" that's made (probably 4"-6" diameter x 3" deep) that would work great...AND have a lid!
