not at all!
it's just that stoves are a hobby and that includes 'all' sources of heat used for cooking and heating.

i have many white-gas and lpg stoves that are just part of the collection.

alcohol is still my fuel of choice.

Now that's the way to cook for a troop. Whats in the tall bottle on the camp kitchen table?

You can see in the background that campfire cooking is the most interesting way to cook. Maybe the cook over there is a better cook :mrgreen:

Its olive oil on the table and we would use that whole bottle that night, good italian cooking. Everyone is huddled around the fire because we had just got it going and we just back from white water rafting and were soaking wet. There was no food but we all hoped there was.

I love campfires also but refrain due to the usual "green" issues. What I do whenever practical is bring my titanium Zip stove (which also works wonders at driving away mosquitos). Or my Kelly Kettle. I just received a Bushbuddy Ultra which i'm dying to try. After i've tested it I think i'll cut a hole in the bottom to fit a Zip fan assembly.

Peace,

Richard.

Richard, let us know how well the bushbuddy works for you. I wood think that your wood fuel is going to burn fast, woodnt you. Don't think the fan is going to be necessary.

The fan is going to be one big pile of it use to be a fan. Best to come from the out side with a tube on side bottom .

I think that's what happened to the one Sgt Rock was playing with for awhile.

Wood stoves get awful hot underneath, my table tells me so :lol: It's my table with character :lol: A work table that's covered with formica.
