I built this stove at work yesterday. It is a stainless L tube, insulated with Roxul and wrapped in 6" duct pipe. Nice to have a sheetmetal shop at my disposal:) Now I don't need to rely on propane for our camping adventures this year!

Hey,
What a great job. I may have to try and build one. My little boys were making stoves out of soda pop cans. They watched on some prepper show. They love projects. Especial if it involves using their fire skills. We have so much debris from the ice storm last month that we have been having a camp fire at the fire pit nightly. I will have to get a new tent though the ice storm killed it. We had been leaving it up as a play fort for the boys. They love sleeping out there in the woods.

Thank you:) I am pretty happy with it after several fires and boiling water, and even frying ground beef . My only concern is the amount of soot. I think the chimney may need to be taller, so the flame doesn't impinge on the pot? I am going to make a couple more for my neighbors and do some mods to the design. I will post more pics!
 
My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
