Product Information

A neat and simple idea, brilliantly executed: the ingenious Woodgas stove efficiently and cleanly burns natural fuel, cleverly channeling excess heat to fan the flames.

The Wild Woodgas Stove is basically a double-walled chimney. A fire is lit in a basket just above the base, which draws air in through the vents around the bottom: similar to a traditional brazier. The big difference is the double walls and a second set of vent holes which open out into the top of the chimney, just below where your pan or mug will sit. The air within the steel walls gets very hot, shooting up and out of the upper vent holes, causing the gas released from the burning wood to combust fiercely and heat your kettle.

This all results in a very hot, clean burn, producing less soot, smoke and carbon monoxide than traditional fires. As the fuel is wood that you pick up while you're out and about, it's pretty much free to run. Because of the cunning way the vents are designed to recycle the heat from the fire, you get even more out of your fuel: even better value than free! Unlike stoves which use battery operated fans to enhance the flames, the Woodgas Stove just needs hot air to rise, so you never need to worry about running out of battery power.

As well as the clever principle of using rising heat, the rest of the Wild Woodgas Stove is pretty cleverly designed too. The simple pot supports will hold a variety of pans, from bigger pots and kettles down to individual mugs. As well as wood, it works well with hexamine solid-fuel tablets or spirit burners for extra versatility (or for when you know there won't be a ready supply of wood).

When you're finished, it comes easily apart and slots together into itself, resulting in a small, light metal cyclinder which will pack into an average sized camping billy can. Brilliant.

-Very stable
-Sturdy, for its weight
-IF you work out how to light it, it really is a good stove, giving about 15-20' of burning time without further feeding.
-Free fuel almost anywhere!
-On long trips with a group, it can save a lot of weight on fuel.
-Very sensitive to wind, windscreen is a must, adding to weight
-Difficult to light, unless the right wood is used. In the wild, if wet conditions, only chance is seasoned logs, split and chipped, using their drier insides. This means a small saw and an axe needs to be carried, also adding to weight.
-If you get the hang of it, it will burn well for about 15-20' (with realistic wood, collected from the wild) without any attention, but it needs constant feeding of small chunks past that point, otherwise it will go out due to lack of fuel, or it will cool down and start to smoke badly if you feed too much or too big a chunk (due to sudden cooling down).

It's not a straight-forward stove (compared to gas stoves for example), but none of the above is serious, if you experiment with it and learn what it likes.

A fantastic little stove! Very light, yet sturdy. Not as quick as a gas stove, but if you enjoy having a real fire, and enjoy having a slower pace, then this stove could be for you.
I used mine on a recent microadventure bivvy, and couldn't have been happier with it.
Nothing.

Easy to light even in windy conditions and gives high flame and heat output in minutes from relatively small amounts of wood. Will burn 'damp' twigs and branches.
