Hello everyone,
I am new to this forum.
I design and build biomass cooking stoves for people in developing regions.
Some of my designs would work in survival situtations.
I plan to make my designs open source if I can find sponsors an donors and I may do a methods manual to market later if ther is interest.
My Pop-Up Two Buck Stove cooks 1.1 kilos of rice with 150 grams of oak or babmoo.
Please view my Youtube video "lannyplans"
www.youtube.com...
Ther could be a element of self promotion here since I may do books later so let me know before I violate any rules.
I am happy to find this interesting site.

That looks very handy. And good for more than survival too. Budget campers should really like this one.

Now if you can get the wood to chop itself for me, I'm on board.

It's pretty cool, but I do have one complaint in it's design. It looks like it's COG is to high. I would be afraid it would tip over easily.

It seems like a really simple, easy design except for one thing I'm unsure of.... you make reference to a "burner" (ie. "side supply burner"), but never exactly what it is, or what you would make that out of. Do you really need it, or could you cook meat properly with only wood in the bottom of the can?

It also seems like that small amount wood should burn up a lot faster than it does... is there something special about the design that facilitates this?

I'm looking forward to putting one of these together and trying to actually cook with it once I get 4 cans together, and also looking into other similar "home-made" stove designs.

Finally from a health stand-point, is there any risk of cooking using an aluminum-based stove like this, such as having fumes go up into the meat? Same for painting the stove.

A step-by-step construction guide would be nice too

I would stay clear of paint to be on the safe side, but the aluminum will be fine. There are a ton of mess kits that you can cook with made of aluminum. I like the swiss one myself.

Well done. Looks a lot like the traditional ‘hobo stove’, but a bit more efficient.

Thanks for you interest and good questions.
There is burner made from a 1.36 liter can. It is a top lit design.
My plan is to make many of my designs open source as soon as I get some funding issues settled.
Also thanks for the comments from other subscribers I will keep you posted on the open source designs, it should not be to long.
