Re: "Fancyfeast Stove" Updated Sept 12 2007

Only problem with this stove is that it pretty much put an end to my stove experimenting. It does the job almost perfectly so not much reason to strive for improvement.

Re: Heet Powered Kelly Kettle

When the Backcountry Boiler first came out, I did some experimenting with various alky stoves inside of it. In the end I found that a ring of carbon felt performed the best. Devin Montgomery, who developed the BCB, heard about it and asked me if he could offer it as an accessory product, which you'l...

Re: Hi-tech single wall wood burning stove

Totally agree that double wall isn't necessary and like I wrote, probably not of enough benefit to matter. If you think about it (and I know you do :D ) the stove takes a while to heat up so the preheat function wouldn't even kick in until it's been burning for a while. Not very useful for short dur...

Re: Fancy Sausage Stove

Supercat stove works fine but like you have had times where I came up short. The added fuel volume of the taller can will be a plus but downside might be it taking longer to prime as more metal and liquid has to be heated.

Re: Hi-tech single wall wood burning stove

...Notice at about 3:00 how the air entering the top holes makes it look like "wood gas" entering and burning. There are many folks out there that think double wall stoves have wood gas coming up the cavity between the outer and inner wall. It's only air, no gas. Look at the video and see...

Re: Wood Burning Stove Build Contest

I'd like to see this kept wide open. That way we'll get a wide variety of stove types and see lots of cool and fun ideas.

When we're building stoves, everyone's a winner. The contest just provides a little motivation to share.

Not really but I'll admit to being a wood stove newbie.

The stove's ability to breath just seems way to limited.

Re: Bush Buddy

What kind of wood did you use for the test? For my Bushwacker I'm using twigs from the ground, up to the size of my pinkie. Since these are camp stoves I figure we should be using what we could gather while hiking. Thus far I haven't had much success but it may just be part of the learning curve. ht...
