In season 7 of NCIS they show in Gibb's basement a shelf with a couple of stoves - one a Coleman and another one that I hadn't seen before. I finally got curious and started looking around - it was a dual burner marine alcohol stove. I'm amazed that they got background materials right even in the fine details that almost no one would notice.

Our thanks go out to Mr. Heater for the heads-up on the great deal at Menards. Thank you Mr.Heater.

RonM, you have a nack for background identification when watching tv....You made me think a little...NCIS is Naval releated and Gibbs was building a sailing vessel in his basement so the marine double burner was appropriate. Amazing catch on that Ron.......thank you!!!!! :D

Ok, I modified one of my stainless steel baskets to make it fit into my newly acquired wood stove for tents. Here is what it looks like in the opening of the stove.

It's going to function very well when I load it and light it. It will be like burning one of those phony logs you pay 3.75 or more for. It will burn cleaner that one of those phonies. ;)

Looks like you maximized available space. The basket should hold a boat load of wood pellets for a nice toasty winter night in your future teepee. Notice I said winter night as that is when I am guessing that you will have your sections sewn together :lol: :lol: :DP: :DB:

Looking forward to see how the stove works out with the basket. Were you planning on lighting the pellets on the end by the door so that the fire burns front to back the length of the basket ?

The whole teepee project sounds like a lot of fun ! Maybe you could put some sticks on the peak to make it look like the real McCoy. :teepee:

Getting packed for your trip to Southern IL ? :chop: :fishing: :fuel: :kayak:


Yes, I'll put the fire to the pellets at the front and let it burn to the back. Once the pellets get consumed by 50% or so I'll add more via an aluminum chute made to have 1/2" sidewalls and long enough to extend half way into the basket. I'll try it that way in the beginning and see how it works out. Don't want to move the basket out to add pellets.

This teepee project is primarily for me to play :lol: I'm making it for my grandchildren :o then we can all play :mrgreen: They are located up in Delavan, WI with a big yard to set it up in. I plan to camp there in their yard and have their mom and dad feed me :teepee: :hungry: :marsh:

Yes, back to packing, leaving in the morning, Tuesday.
