Ring Of Fire Stove AKA Doodah Man Special

Post by zelph » Sun Oct 28, 2007 3:33 pm

Here is a link to the Whiteblaze.net thread that gives a description of the Doodah Man Special stove that changed it's name to The Ring Of Fire: http://www.whiteblaze.net/forum/showthread.php?t=22425

Recently someone asked me about where to get certain items for making a Ring of Fire. It's good to get reminded of certain stoves

Recent family matters have kept me away from providing stoves to the general public. I act on the fast and easy stuff.

For those that may still be interested in making their own, the baking pans used in the EasyBake ovens will work. There are two different sizes in the depth of the pans. Diameters are the same. I've seen replacement pans avilable on ebay, 2 for $10.00, too pricey

Look in the thrift stores, there is where you can find them with the entire oven for under $5.00, don't pay any more than that.

Use automotive/boat repair fiberglass cloth for the wick. Have it stick up 1/8 inch and use 2 layers wrapped around inside of tin.

This is just a reminder: All the heat goes up the sides of the pot. There is no flame that touches the bottom of the pot. Some stove makers are in denial of this fact. They keep teaching the newbies that it's bad. It's OK for heat to go up the sides of the pot. The sides absorb heat. This stove proves that.

Did one test boil. 17ml of fuel boiled 2 cups in 9.5 min. Water was about 45 degrees, ambient air was same. In the garage testing facility.

Here are photos of baking pan with fire:

as all the heat that heats the pot goes up the side this might be an excelent stove pot combination to test a variation of a cadella cadera watchya macallit cone thingy windscreen on...... :idea:

I had the thought to use a size just right to heat cans of food. I used my original size in a pinch these last few days while out and about.

When I got home I tried the end caps for the Pampered Chef bread tubes. Two caps per tube. These tubes are easily found in the thrift stores at $1.00 or $2.00 each.

The end caps worked very well.

This size of stove works well for canned goods in storage at home during times of emergency. heat the food directly in the can.

I'm going to try making bread in a Fosters can and the Ring of Fire. The fosters can being the oven. Should work, what do you think?

In regards to using the fosters can as an oven I did not work well at all. It got way too hot. :lol: :lol:

Back to the drawing board!!!!!!

Thinking about this, a double boiler / bain-marie concept comes to mind. Should heat slower and definitely more evenly. May require more fuel though.

This is my new invention.

A multipurpose storage container for the Heineken Pot and "Ring Of Fire Stove"

The stove operates inside the container. (like the cone windscreen)

The container acts as the windscreen. (like the cone shaped windscreen)

The container has a detachable flue that exhausts the spent gasses. The opening for the exhaust is twice the height as the opening for the incoming air for ignition of the burner. The exhaust is the same width as the air intake.

The container can be used as an oven by using the area above the pot while the water is boiling.

More photos and specs to follow as I do test and adjustments.

The idea to incorporate a flue comes from the recent post of the Pottery Kiln that shows sketches of the positioning of the flue to create the downdraft allowing the cover to be on the pot

This is just a quick movie to show the exhaust coming out the flue can blow out a match. It's a visual for me to see how it's working :)
