Re: Bush Buddy

I'm sorry Zelph, what I meant to say was: What material did you use to make the pot stand on top of the paint can, with all the holes in it?

Re: Bush Buddy

There is a good YouTube video on making a wood stove from 1qt paint can. It resembles a bush buddy. It is a very "clean" looking stove, although I've made a few improvements on the pot stand. Zelph, I like the one that you fabricated. What material did you use for it? Take a look: http://w...

Thanks, "just tinkering," for giving the workaholics an explanation.

Just a little tongue in cheek with the storm that is going on in the State of Arizona.

Buy Arizona!

Don't boycott Arizona....................drinks. Don't discriminate and profile these cans because of their outward appearance. The liberal media has given these cans a bad name.....guilt by association! They are actually native to the United States, New York in particular. These containers are arti...

Re: Foster's Premium Wood Stove

The bottle cap works perfectly for the correct amount of Jameson's in a mug of Chai. Since the weather was of the wet variety when we were camping, I brought along various wood chips from home. I brought commercial hickory chips, field collected pine chips and field collected eucalyptus chips. They ...

Re: Foster's Premium Wood Stove

I just got back from camping at Yosemite near Wawona and on further testing of the Foster's Wood Stove found a better lighting "technique" than what I had mentioned before in this thread. My brother had brought along some KingSford Charcoal Lighter Fluid for, of course, starting our campfi...

Re: Foster's Premium Wood Stove

I punched larger holes where the previous 12 were on the heat shield to allow more oxygen to flow up the side of the stove into the upper air intakes for the secondary burn. I got an incredible jump in heat and efficiency on the Foster's Wood Gas Stove. I heated 1 quart of 35 degree F. water in an o...

Re: Foster's Premium Wood Stove

Zelph, Stoves that appeal to me are the ones you can load it, light it, walk away from it and have it boil 2 cups of water. No adding fuel in between. I like it to be of a quart size can, no larger. The lastest upgrade in the Foster's Stove, drilling holes in bottom of heat shield, has made the reli...
