Camping Hack: Turn an Empty Beer Can into an Easy DIY Popcorn Popper

Turn an Empty Beer Can into an Easy DIY Popcorn Popper

Most of us are used to just grabbing a bag and throwing it in the microwave when we want popcorn. It's easy, convenient, and requires little to no cleanup. But what about those times when you're away from home and don't have access to a microwave?

You can buy a popcorn popper specifically made to use over a campfire, but if you don't go camping a lot it's not worth the money or storage space. For the occasional trip, all you need to make your own popcorn is an empty beer (or soda) can.

All you have to do is use sandpaper or another rough surface to scratch up one side of the can, then cut out a flap near the top. To use it, just put a little oil in the bottom of the can, throw in the unpopped kernels and put it over a flame. The flap will help make sure your popcorn ends up in a bowl, not all over your floor.
