I'm modifying my small kettle. If I eliminate the base I can add a grease pot plus 1/2 ounce of something. The grease pot will heat 3-4 cups on top of the kettle while the kettle is heating 2 cups.

Wood will be contained in a round Woodgaz stove as seen in the first post to this thread. The woodgaz controls the burn in an orderly fashion when vertical stacked and top lit.

The 2 pieces under the kettle are stainless steel to withstand high heat. They raise the kettle to allow air to enter from below. A stainless corrugated sheet will protect the ground from being scorched.

The kettle fits into the grease pot for storage. The grease pot fits well into the green stuff sack.

My wife and I burned some clothes pins today for a side by side test of the kettles. My wife's kettle boiled and mine did not. Guess why not!!!!! :D

You got your clothes pins off the outdoor line after the crappy weather we have had lately. Hers came out of the bag from the dollar store. :DP:

All good guesses :D

The correct answer is: too much air entering from below on mine. I can reduce the height of the kettle support down to 3/8" and that should be fine. It's nice to be able to put in one load of wood and let it go, no need to add and have leftovers/burning twigs falling out from the base section when the kettle is lifted off.

More than likely you'll be wearing them both out by burning them side by side for comparison tests.. :roll:
