Aluminium Billy Can 2.83L

Army and Outdoors



Billy cans (sometimes called billy tins, billy pots or simply, a billy) are lightweight cooking pots, shaped like metal buckets. These utensils are usually used outdoors, for carrying or boiling water and making tea. It's accepted that the name came from large cans that were used for transporting bouilli or bully beef on Australian ships. After transport, those large cans were modified for boiling water.

If you're heading outdoors and plan on cooking a large quantity of food or just need some storage equipment, then this piece of gear is perfect for you. Not only is it easy to take with you, due to it's lightweight aluminium material, but it's also a great size for boiling water and making hot drinks in.
