Flip the coffee can upside down and place the buddy burner under it
It takes about one minute to light a Buddy Burner. To do so tip the stove upside down and apply a flame to the cardboard until it the fire spreads to the whole coil. Wind is not the buddy burner's friend so keep it out of the wind. If you only have wet tinder available the Buddy Burner can be used to start your fire, simply place it under the tinder.
