I got a Cabela's Pocket Cooker today at a thrift store for $5 so I'm ready to try my Stovetop Oven when the berries come out.. :lol:

Not a bad looking/folding smaller woodstove for cheap(like $16 on the net),apparently Cabela's no longer carries them..BUT they weigh 22oz...all steel..should last quite awhile.Interesting folding concept if someone wants to make their own out of lighter thin stainless... :roll:

It is heavy.

It will be interesting to find out if the hinged edges burn up, become immovable, or rust.

Do many "burn tests" and tell us.

Berries and stoves? Syrup? Cobbler?

what will you use for slow, low heat? Wood, yes, but how? Slow twiggy feed?

You can buy the same stove thru The Backwoodsman Magazine for the low price of 19.99 plus $6 shipping :roll:

Also it is sold at the Camping Survival website for 12.95 plus ship. To me that is about 8.00 so for a total of about 21.00.

Has anyone tried to burn twigs in one of these aluminum folding stoves? A small fire in the middle should be ok

I think a wood fire would be too hot for aluminum.

That Sterno stove is huge.

It reminds me of a Colman "camp oven" I had once, and only used once.

I have one somewhere in the garage. I'll try a load of twigs sometime to see how it fares.
