The three lower ones were done first, the top one went on for a short time more.

Lots of heat coming out of that little stove :D

I've been using this stove quite a bit this summer and it has served me well. Many times I used it as a poor mans campfire. I loaded it with wood pellets and it lasts for about an hour giving off really nice flames. Looks just like campfire flames.

I'm going to be working on a quart sized pellet burner to see how it will work out for an emergency preparedness stove.

This photo is from my recent camping in Nauvoo State Park. I'm burning wood pellets. Easy to light with one Weber Charcoal Lighter cube cut into 4 pieces.

The photo shows what a lot of stove makers say is wood gas coming in through the holes and igniting. They think it's "Secondary Burn" :roll:

I ate a lot of Mountain House meals for breakfast when it was a cooler 80 degrees :mrgreen:

I've been working on a quart size pellet burner that can boil 1 gallon of water in 21 min. and continue to boil it for an additional 9 min. on one load(11oz.) of wood pellets. I'll create a new thread for it this coming week. Pellets are a great fuel for a base camp situation and for an Emergency Preparedness program for your family. 40 pound bag of pellets costs $4.00............yes, only $4.00

Costs $5.00 for 15 pounds of logs when you buy them at the local campgrounds or gas station. Better off using pellets. ;)

I purchased one of these on ebay today to use on my DIY stainless steel stove:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/230740583229?ss ... 1497.l2649

Holds 2 litres of water. 9.75" diameter by 16" tall and weighs 4 pounds. The WAPI indicator is included. connie mentioned the WAPI in one her threads a while back.

Read the description on the ebay listing.

This giant of a Kelly Kettle style container will be placed in my base camp equipment for summer use.

Call me Kettle Dan :DBfire:

Seems like you get a lot for the price. Nice find.

That is a monster kettle. I've run across those in my research on the volcano kettles. To bad they didn't throw in the stove but i'm sure you can come up with something that will fit the bill ;)

I can use it on the stove that I made out the stainless steel charcoal starter. this thread is about that stove. I also made a wood burner out of a #10 size food can that should work also. The charcoal starter one is 7" diameter. all I have to do is take off the mesh pot support and put a cross shaped somthing or other on top of the stove and it should work well. I can always make something new to work well with the new container. a twig organizer basket made of 1/2" stainless steel hardware cloth will work.

Correction: it holds 4 litres of water

A comment made by an ebay customer:

Dear stovetec5415154394,

I just felt compelled to try to add a comment to this product. Although they don't post a pic of the inside of this product, it is a cone like a Kelly Kettle. This is 5 times the size of the largest Kelly. I just got one of these, along with the stove. A perfect match, and a must for any survival kit. Half the price of the largest Kelly. I have a Lg Kelly as well, this item is a must for lots of water and teaches you about pasteurizing as well. Just FYI...

My new piece of equipment arrived today. I ordered it on Sat. and got it today. (Eugene, Oregon)

I'll call it "Monster Kettle" aka "STOVETEC WATER PASTEURIZER" It holds over 1 gallon of water.

I checked it for seam leaks and all is well. No need to send it back to seller. :DB:

All construction is rugged looking(except the wire bail handle :roll: ) and worth the price I paid. I'll have photos and video maybe this weekend. New toys need to be played with ASAP :mrgreen:

Mode of Operendum = use in conjunction with large Dutch Oven at family campouts/gatherings.

Here is a photo of the WAPI that comes with it:
