Hello from a UK Newbie!

Postby TeePee » Sun Jan 31, 2010 5:10 pm

I'd like to say hi to all! :)
I am an obsessive wood stove tinkerer and lightweight backpacker from Peterborough, England.
There are so many fellow stovers on this forum, I had to join! :D

I had a 50-50 chance of getting it .....upper and lower :o

Do you have access to peat from the bogs where there is known to be lots of horror :geek:

Tell us a little about the properties of "peat" as a fuel for peat burning stoves :o . I think we've just introduced another fuel alternative.....who woulda thunkit :idea:

The idea of putting black soot all over my pots does not make me a happy bunny. I like clean burning stoves.

Those two statements lead to a bit of conflict, ehh? Have you come up with a wood burner without soot? Have you used one of the Kettle stoves that originate over the pond? I imaginne that the soot problem still exist when using an extra pot above the kettle.
