So far I have used ash, hemlock, cedar, pine, sequoia, birch and cherry. There isn’t much to figure out about this one…. just light it and watch it burn. Hey cr1, you ever see bugs hang out in a fire?

Cool. Reminds me of a wood gas stove.
Try a search for them on youtube, as they too are cool.

Haven’t seen this one before but I really gotta try it.

There is a guy on the web that sells these as “Stump Stoves” ( and they do work. Great for camping.

Neat Idea.. I am guessing the vertical hole stops just below the vent hole – true?

Thanks for sharing

Hmm I’ve sat around a lot of fairly smoky fires and had bug issues. It must have been a faulty design in my fire :) LOL

I don’t have bug problems. I keep a bug attracter nearby (my wife), and they never seem to bother me…
