If you want to prepare for the future these little guys look like they would be a great addition to anyones arsenal of survival gear... it could save your life, or just make the ride that much more comfortable! Either way after checking them out, I will have several in my gear...

It cooks with "deadwood" sticks, tree bark, pine cones, scrap lumber, and other "biomass fuels"! Going Green ..... :-)

It has a 5 year warranty
and is made in the USA!!

Neat. Could be useful. What would some alternatives be?

Some of the welding looks like it was done by a 2 year old.

Cost seems reasonable. I just paid $129 for a firepit system.

Its really just utilizing the "chimney" effect to concentrate heat and maintain a good air flow through the fire box. The cooking area seems pretty small. I think it fall along the lines of those "volcano" type products.

Holy crap 18 pounds and $164. Have you ever seen the burner on your stove? Do you think that flame and heat is the same as a roaring fire in a fireplace? That thing is way overkill and your pots and food will get burnt quick. Here are some other options

Looks alright for home or backyard use, but also way overpriced.

For on the road I have a custom coffee can outfitted with 8 dollars of home depot gear. It probably weights about a pound. Cooks eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, boils water, all great.

I just dont see the need for something that big and heavy unless its arctic winter. If youre at home you probably want a full sized stove for SHTF anyway.

I'd really like to hear your thoughts when you get one. Specifically on build quality, assembly, pros, cons, cook time, heat output, ease of use, ect.

Would you have pics of the setup? I'm always curious about different coffee-can type stoves as they can be fairly easily cobbled up for trial or expedient use.

I'll try to get pics soon, its basically a coffee can with a grate on top to hold pots/ pans and 1/2 of the bottom cut out (total), in 3 sections to let air in. then another grate about 3/4 of an inch up to support the burning materials.

Its based on this design:

but with with cutout airslots instead of drilled airholes on the bottom, and 2 grates, one on top and one on bottom.

I think I can get it made locally for about half the price. If I could weld myself, I could make it out of scraps. Nice setup though. Made me WANT to cook outside!

From the picture at the Deadwood website... Why would you need a stove at all when you have a campfire ten feet away. There is a pot already cooking on the fire and it seems to be doing just fine. :headscratch:

I'm partial to the Stratus TrailStove (http://www.trailstove.com/details.html). It's a nice step up from the coffee can stoves I used for years. Lightweight, smart versatile design, reasonably rugged, fairly inexpensive, and the blow tube makes it quick and easy to get a good fire going. I've got a lot of miles out of mine, and it's still in great shape.

The Deadwood stove still looks pretty cool. The price is a little steep, but not unreasonable if it's as well-built as they state. I might keep it in mind, once I move somewhere I have a real yard.

Never seen that one before. Looks like it would be easy to make out of a charcoal chimney; in fact it looks almost like it was made out of a charcoal chimney.

I've used the chimneys to start charcoal, but it never occured to me to use it as a portable stove. Thanks, I may look at cobbling one up.
