Woodgas Stove

Mindful of the fact that I had run out of LPG in the Hebrides last year, I took delivery of a wood gas stove upon the recommendation of my dear friend and neighbour Mike.


Mike also made me a froe and a mallet, and I bought a bowsaw, so I can chop up wood to use as fuel. It also uses things like pine cones, twigs, grass etc. In the Hebrides I may even try it on peat.


It works by a little fan in the underside that circulates the air and makes the most of the gas that the wood gives off, making for a very hot and smoke-free fire.

I got the XL model which is best for Airstreamers. Beats a gas barbie any day!
