Hot water - wood heated.

Neat set up for hot water while camping. I would punch some holes in the bottom edge of the can or even better incorporate it into a rocket stove.

With the can set up as is is would be slow heating.
Use a rocket stove and it would be quite good. Could even close the top of the rocket stove and have a small chimney to keep heat in.
