If you look closely at the lower you should see 3 mesh tabs (just like the upper): these just fit into the top half (quite tightly).

Thanks. But sorry no flame photo: I like to keep my camera separate from flames :D

I see the tabs now :) Can you get 2 cups to boil on one load of twigs or do you have to feed more when necessary?

A few extra twigs fed in seems to be necessary.

Looks nice. It looks like it would hold a fair amount of wood. :D lots of potential

From the top is easiest when the fires going well. When not, the fire can be poked etc thru the firebase upper "window".

I think feeding through the bottom is more conservative. Seems like I always put too much in through the top and would create too much smoke and sometimes lower the flame output.

The pan support of my BushCooker, so probably therefore the BushBuddy's, fits into the BB's fire pan enlarging the capacity.It does work both ends up but the pots support upwards is by far the most stable.I have seen on here that the pot support can be used for any alky stove so the could be useful if would is in short supply.
