Re: Question about your hole

Yup, saw that one. Your hole is much larger and has a much narrower angle to the "V" design than what I went with. I'm still going to try and do some tests with the lighter aluminum material as a wood stove, but frankly, even if it could be used that way with small sticks, I wouldn't want to market ...

Re: Question about your hole

The door is pretty centrally located in the side of the stove and large enough to add small pine cones and sticks. There are 1/4" holes near the lip of the stove that allow you to use 2 tent stakes horizontally as a raised pot stand. They are low enough that the pot sits down on the tent stakes and ...

Re: Question about your hole

Very similar, but again, this one will be designed and scaled to fit with my cook set. My hole design is more of a cross between the fireplace door posted in cadyak's first post and the 'v' design some of you have used here. Imagine the shape of the fireplace door with a slightly pointed bottom. Aft...

Re: FireMug KIT

Typically, if I know I like seasonings I can get in packets, I'll get the packets and tape what I need to each meal bag. (Shells&cheese, I like pepper so I'll tape 2 pepper packets on the bag, for spam I like ketchup so I'll tape a couple of ketchup packets on the foil bag, etc.) If I have a favorit...

Re: Question about your hole

Thanks for all of the info. It was very helpful. I ended up reducing the size of the fuel hole and raising it up higher. I was worried about sticks/coals building up and falling out. I took the design in to a shop that does a lot of aluminum and stainless fabrication and hope to have the prototype d...

Re: Question about your hole

Thanks for the responses so far.
Now I also notice some of the fuel holes are located pretty low (to the ground/bottom of the stove), others were higher up.
Please tell me why you chose your location for the fuel hole. Also if you had the tools/materials would you make the hole larger or smaller?

Question about your hole

Now that I have your attention, I have a question about wood burning stoves for cook pots. This won't really apply to tent heaters/stoves etc. Mainly just small fire ring style wood burners that you would set a pot on. Several people have made them here and I have noticed that many make them with a ...

Re: "Jack" Stove

Works really well. Just make sure you have heavy duty aluminum foil. I remember taking a bottle of squeeze butter on a trip into the Sequoya National Forest catching golden trout. We found wild green onions and chopped those up and added butter.
Bacon and potatoes also cook well this way.

Re: "Jack" Stove

Nice! Yeah, this kit is definitely NOT for frying. Even baking has a very limited application. I don't think the term lazy is one I will use to try and market this. :D I've got one set aside for you. You'll have it one way or another. :DP: Just waiting on a few more parts and still finishing up the ...

Re: "Jack" Stove

I wanted to quote Jollyrogers but didn't want to take up the whole page. I think you should just stick to marketing the stove and leave the kit alone. The stove is very nice work, but the rest of the kit can be found at local stores and is extremly heavy. The whole part of a cook kit is to find wha...
