scouts-l Mail Archive for March of 2000: Help on Log Stove
Sat Mar 04 2000 - 07:56:52 CST
When I took Wood Badge back in 1992 the cooking portion of the "O" trail
featured a log stove with a rock on top. I've tried to duplicate a couple of
times later without success though I will continue to try to again and again
As I recall it featured three upright logs of about 12" in height held
together buy a piece of wire. A long candle was in the middle that was lit.
After a while it starts the logs burning as it burns down. Once it gets going
good a flat rock is placed on top and on top of that a coffee pot (did you
smell that Mike Walton?). If rock gets too hot for the coffee pot you place
three nuts under pot like in a Dutch oven for a plate. I'm told it will go
all day once it gets going.
I think you use wood that has only seasoned a few months so as to not get it
roaring too fast.
Anybody with any experience or DWG's on a web site?

PS After I get finished with painting an upstairs bedroom, vacuuming the
house, laundry, dump rum, I'll get to play outside again with this stove idea!
