    Default wood gas stoves

    Has anyone used the woodgas stove (http://www.woodgas-stove.com/) or the Sierra Zip stove (http://zzstove.com/mcart/index.cgi)?

    They both claim to burn practically any fuel a person might find in the woods, so no packing fuel. Both are significantly heavier than the stoves written about in this forum, but picking up fuel off the ground would make the weight issue a wash on a longer hunt, even including extra batteries.

    Hi,

    I haven't tried one, but it looks like a stove you could build. I saw plans for something like it back last fall in a copy of the BackWoodman Magazine. It used two coffee cans.

    Default wet

    Depending on where you are at, dry fuel might be hard to come by. You could carry some dry, but that would defeat the purpose.

    Default Plans

    Here's someone that posts plans and pictures of a homebuilt model. I bet you could even make it more compact.

    It's called the "Smitty Stove"

    Thumbs up Kelly's Kettle...

    Been wanting a woodburner myself. The Kelly's Kettle is the one I have heard/read the most about. Extremely popular in New Zealand I hear. Very unique design in that it holds the water on the inside in a metal bladder. I hear it works very fast. I want one. The review and pictures on www.oldjimbo.com below are the best.

    Default Bushbuddy

    How about the Bushbuddy stove? http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-...ood_stove.html

    Sounds like it's similar to the other two without the fan. Anyone have any experience with it?

    Thanks!
