Thanks for trying. I'll have to travel farther out and see what's up :D

Corporate office is about 60 miles from here, maybe Monday I'll swing over into that area and inquire.

I grilled the third steak today, used 4 briquettes and a globe with no holes, just the open bottom of my grill. I recommend using a piece of foil to wrap steak in and then use 2 tarp stakes to support it over the stove.

I took 16 min to cook to perfection :) Sarbar would be proud :D

View photos from bottom first.

Image shows how I used tarp stakes to support windscreen and pot. No holes required in stove, just use tarp stakes. Use the globe as your windscreen.

Image only four pieces of charcoal

I then did a test of using a globe with no holes to burn wood twigs. I supported the globe with 2 tarp steaks(food on my mind :roll: )

It worked like a charm. I had to make 4 videos to show a complete cycle :D

The wood burner needs oxygen, lots of it, more is better. The wood that you use should be driest you can find, size of twigs no bigger than your pinky finger, don't be in a hurry to put more wood on you'll cut of the oxygen. Let it get goin good before adding more wood.
Enjoy the little campfire :D You need oak, maple, hickory for long burning fuel. Practice before going out on a trek.

Thank You for that link Nightwalker, now if I can only figure out how to use it :D

I found out yesterday that I had two different size globes. The difference is in their height. My most recent purchase is 5/8" shorter than the original. The third steak was grilled on the shorter one.

If you have Windows movie maker you can import the different movies, edit and upload....or...

Upload the movies as clips to jumpcut and save them as a set as they're uploading. Then make a movie from the set. Free and no file size limit(yet). You can also edit online with Jumpcut.

One thing you apparently can't do is directly post photos from jumpcut to a bulletin board. I've been going crazy trying to figure a way but no dice. If anybody knows how to do it, help a brotha out. :oops:
