I have done a lot of research on the volcano kettles and to the best of my knowledge, there are no manufacturers in the states(shame on us). I recall the thermette having a distribution area in the states somewhere in the NW and now the Kelly kettle has a US distributor.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Going with straight walls will increase overall size to get your desired volume, I would think, especially if it is heating with a wood fire. Are you thinking of using existing containers for your walls or doing some fabrication?

It depends on materials available. There exists some nice premade pieces in the pellet stove industry. I need to do some research. Lots of ideas are flowing. Need to sleep on them :D keep a note pad handy. Just before I doze off I get some good ones :lol:

Well, after a week with your KellyKettle, have you had any more thoughts on fabricating a Zelph Stoveworks Kettle? :ugeek:

:oops: I didn't have room for it in the trunk :lol: I took my Origo, one burner alcohol stove and a 4 cup capacity aluminum pot with pour spout and bail handle(side handles also) We camped right next to the town of Metropolis, IL so we were tempted by the local restaurants that were there :oops: Dined out a lot :hungry:

Sat. and Sunday we spent most of the day in the city of Peducah, Kentucky which is within a stones throw across the Ohio River from the campground.It was pure summertime temperatures there. People walking around in shorts and driving convertibles :D
