Yes, as soon as a pot is placed on the support the amount of air passing through the fuel is decreased. I may ad an additional 1/2 inch to the height of this stove to eliminate some of the smoke produced. Even though I did not use a windscreen, the stove still got the boil of 2 cups of water. One batch of fuel burned with flame for approximately 15 min. The video is split into 2 parts to see it in it's entirety. The stove is only 3 3/4" x 4" in size. The area that contains the fuel is 2" x 3 3/4"(does not include the area for the paper starter)
I'm going to be using this stove this spring. I just came back to this thread to reminisce over good times
Click on both stove videos to watch them simultaneously...it's fun to watch both at the same time.
