Bacon Burn Question

10 posts in this topic

How high up on the coffee can do you put your holes for the wire?

How many tea candles do you put in the bottom of the coffee can?

How many pieces of bacon do you put in the soup can?

Any help is always appreciated.

Biff, I put the holes about half way up the can. And a sterno candle works better then tea candles, burns longer and hotter, although they do cost more. I would use a soup can and stuff it half full, 4-5 pieces. I shot my first bear with her nose in the can. I thought about chowing down the bacon but I was bloody up to my elbows.

I like to use sterno to Ihave use tea candles but they tend to get blowen out, wally world has sterno in the camping section, i also like to put the wires when using sterno near the top of the coffee can cause sterno burns realy hot, it takes some experimenting with the distance from heat to bacon, one thig I do is go to the food store an buy the biggest box of bacon trimming they have, it is generally alot cheaper, I find about a 5lb box for 5 bucks, at my store, an just cook about half of it up, save the grease, then do a burn with the grease an add some bacon to that, that way it has alot more simmering effect than a frying effect, basicly it wont burn it right away. Also I have hear of using honey an cherry jello mix works really good to, Boar

Great info guys. I really appreciate it. Unfortuneatly I can not practice the burn tomorrow as I have to work. So I will buy the sterno tomorrow on my lunch and listen to Boar's advice and put the holes towards the top and do the burn tomorrow night and hope this bear comes in. Tonight would have a been a great night to do it.

If your worried about bacon burning in your can and want to leave your sterno candle buring for 2 hours add about a half can of used fish grease in the mix with bacon in it. It doesn't smoke as much and it really puts out an aroma.

Gook luck

Are you using grease from frying fish or the dripping from a sardine can or something? boar

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
