willy... belive it or not, rubbing alcohol has a lot of water in it. so it dosen`t burn very hot. also, i`m told it dosen`t burn clean either, so it will smoot-up your pot. go to any paint or home improvement store & you should be able to find denatured alcohol. if not, i read that others will often use "heet" in the yellow bottle found in the automotive section. you can even find that in the gas station. ...slowhike
