The word is out that Kmart is discontinuing the replacement globes. Some are buying them at a price of $2.00 bucks each.

They make excellent stoves and windscreens. Get em while they last. If you don't buy them, they'll throw them in the trash, OUCH!!!!!

Hmmmm? adds new meaning to dumpster diving.

Recently on Whitblaze.net the globe stove made history. I was chosen by member Sgt. Rock to be taken on his upcoming thru hike on the Appalacian Trail.

Here is what he had to say in a thread concerning the use of stoves when I challenged him to make a Caldera cone type stove using the mesh of the Globe Stove.

Actually I am working 0n a winter hammock and warming system for my hike so I can carry more insulation and less hammock (and a lighter hammock) than I do now - Since I am starting in January I figured a bugnet ain't a need - but a rig to stay warmer when I sleep is essential. I hope to have something worked out today that should cut my hammock by a pound and improve my ability to stay warm with some of the stuff I already own.

And of course - carrying my globe stove should also help since I can have a portable warming fire and wood stove.

This stove really works well, is one piece and weighs only 45 grams. If the Rock likes it well enough to take on his thru, then it must be A-OK :D

FYI, I have seen the replacement globes in Wal-Marts as well.

I'll keep my eyes peeled and report back. Due to my job, I have the opportunity to check out stores all over the Southeast.

I was able to score on a few this past weekend. I'll make some available in my cottage industry.

Just for the heckoffit, tomorrow I'm goin to grill a steak on the globe stove.

I was able to put 6 pieces of charcoal briquetts into the stove. That should produce some great grilling coals for one steak.

Occasionally you hear of someone wanting to have freash steak their first night out on the trail. Not a bad idea, sounds yummy to me. I think this little stove might work out well for doing just that.

I was able to grill 2 steaks with the 6 briquettes.

I recommend no fewer than 6. They keep each other remaining in an upright position for an efficient burn.

Start at the bottom photo and work your way up for sequence of photos taken.

Image When this one was finished cooking I put on another one. It looked as if the coal were still good for another one.

The stove is the original design, I grabbed what was handy. Vents may not be needed. I just like my stoves to have plenty of oxygen to begin with, I can always cut back. Tell you what I'm gonna do, I'll cook a third steak left over from yesterday with a globe windscreen that my wife uses with her Ring of Fire stove. These globes are really getting hard to find. I only have two left.

I'm going to talk to some corporate people at Kmart, they are here locally watching over the big rehab of the Kmart store about 3 miles away. I'll see if I can get some info from them to find out if there is a skid load of them in inventory somewhere.

Zelph I checked three K-Marts and two Wal-Marts this past week. Nary a globe in sight. I'll keep looking but it seems pretty grim out there.
