Lid for the IMUSA Mug on 05/13/2007 17:41:48 MDT Print View

The Bushbuddy Ultra nests very well inside the IMUSA mug but I would like to fashion a more suitable lid. Presently I am using an aluminum foil lid off of a Knox Gelatin can. This set-up is effective for providing a quick boil but the over-hang traps an abundance of soot which can be tasted at times. I have since trimmed the overhang right up to the outside edge of the pot, but it doesn’t look too durable.

The inside diameter is just a hair’s breadth (literally) short of 4.5 inches. A lid that fits inside of the pot similar to the Firelite would seem to cure most of the problem. The Greasepot type of lid that fits over the outside of the whole pot and would trap the soot like my present set-up.

If anyone knows of a cheap pot that matches that dimension, please let me know; or of other solutions to the above. Thanks in advance for your input. John
