Hiking -- it's a non-technical climb.

See how the companion Burner faired in a test on the other side of the pond (United Kindom)

Shug tries the Companion Burner to fry my favorite food...........egg :D

The burner is easy to use in other wood burning stoves and also as a stand alone alcohol stove when used with a hardware cloth pot support.

Companion burners are now in stock at http://www.zelphs-stoveworks.com or http://www.woodgaz-stove.com

Does the Companion stove get sufficient air, inside a Bush Buddy?

Yes, it gets plenty of air from all directions.


The burn rate is ideal. Shug mentioned a faster burn can be had with a different type of stove. I agree other stoves would burn faster but far less efficient. I like efficient :D

Watch this video to see how it burns under the BB. The top of the burner is almost even with the top rim of the BB. Plenty of air for the burner.

A question that comes up on occasion is: Do i furnish the snuffer cap seen on Shugs video?

I don't furish it. I watched the video and it looks like a small heineken beer can cut down to fit.

Today I tried a diet coke and pepsi can and they work great. A tiny hole has to be made in the bottom of the can so air can escape when trying to put the can on and take it off. It's a tight fit but is doable. Makes for a nice lid to almost prevent vaporization of any remaining fuel. Remember, the fuel put in is kept in suspension. It won't pour out, but will still evaporate. Putting a tight fitting lid on it will work just fine.

I'll provide a snuffer until my inventory of empty pop cans runs out :D

This message goes out to all that have purchased so far.(over a hundred)

Now this makes me think this companion burner with cap/lid acts like a Trangia of sorts. Unused fuel???? put the lid on it. Why not put 3 ounces in for an over nighter. No need to carry a fuel bottle, just an idea. ;)

I just completed 10 dozen companion burners today :D They are on the shelves. The wood burning season is upon us soon so get one of these burners to compliment your set for those wet wood days when you need to burn some alcohol.

The companion burner holds 4 ounces of fuel in suspension. Great for purifing lots of water in one sitting. Great for melting snow.
