These are the smallest, lightest and most portable types of our survival cooking stoves for emergency preparedness, backpacking and camping.
The WoodGas stoves unique design allows them to burn a very small amount of natural abundant biomass fuel (small twigs, sticks, pine cones and wood scraps) at extremely hot and clean burning temperatures. The key to the wood gas survival cooking stoves success it its small but powerful battery operated fan that is located at the bottom of the stove, When the small long lasting 9-11 hour 2-AA battery pack is turned on the fan forces fresh air up into the burn chamber of the wood gas stove. This causes the fuel in the stove to burn very hot like a mini blast furnace and at a constant rate. In fact the wood gas survival cooking stoves burn fuel at such a high temperature it is able to burn twice because this now includes burning the gas produced from the fuel itself. This is called gasification! Because of the high heat produced its flame burns blue and there is hardly any smoke produced at all.
The 35 oz lightweight wood gas survival cooking stoves will burn fuel at 12,000 BTU/hour of cooking heat for 20 minutes if cooking with one load of small twigs and the smaller and lighter 23 oz backpacking wood gas model will produce 10,000 BTU/hour of cooking heat for 10 minutes with one small load of twigs. This is still enough time to boil water and cook a small meal while backpacking. If you need more cooking time just throw in a few more twigs! Its that easy!
