WILDERNESS CAMP WOOD STOVE CHARACTERISTICS

  • GASKET ON DOOR FOR AN AIRTIGHT STOVE. Airtight stove allows for longer burn times and controls rate of burn better.
  • Reinforcement bars welded to top, both sides and back wilderness wood camp stove to prevent warping.
  • RAIN CAP WITH SPARK ARRESTOR. . Prevents rain and snow going into stove pipe. Much better than wire mesh spark arrestors on most stoves. Most other stoves do not have a rain cap.
  • Large adjustable air intake on door allows a hotter fire when needed on cold nights. Baffle behind air intake.
  • All stove accessories fit inside firebox.
  • 5" nesting stove pipe, 7' 8" long - smallest piece fits into next larger size, end of pipe is 6".
  • A 5" standard oval stove jack.
  • Warming trays - 25"l x 8"w, which can fit on either side of stove.
  • Stainless steel 3 gallon water tank - can fit on either side of Wilderness wood camp stoves.
  • Legs are 18" long. Which makes the stove top 6" higher than other stoves. Easier to cook on and easier to add wood. Also increases overall height at top of stove pipe by 6' as other stoves only have 12" legs. If you prefer, shorter legs - use a hack saw.

SAFETY/ SMOKE ISSUES: ALL SPARK ARRESTORS WILL BECOME CLOGGED WITH ASH AND SOOT. REMEMBER TO CHECK YOUR SPARK ARRESTOR DAILY AND CLEAN SPARK ARRESTOR AS REQUIRED. USING SOFT WOOD AND LOWER TEMPERATURE STOVE BURNS WILL CAUSE THE SPARK ARRESTOR TO BE CLOGGED SOONER. A CLOGGED SPARK ARRESTOR WILL CAUSE SMOKE TO ESCAPE FROM THE STOVE DOOR INTAKE AND WHEN OPENING DOOR. AND IN EXTREME CASES, A STOVE PIPE FIRE.

DAMPER: DAMPER MUST BE IN TOTALLY OPEN POSITION WHEN OPENING THE STOVE DOOR OR SMOKE WILL COME OUT THE STOVE DOOR. FOR DAMPER INSTALLATION VIEW WILDERNESS STOVE VIDEO.



CURING YOUR STOVE
CURING simply means baking your paint onto the camp wood Sstove. Always, always do the curing/first burn of your stove outside of your tent, preferably In your back yard. During the first burn there will be smoke and a very strong odor.You do not want this smell permeating the canvas in your tent. You and the tent will both have the smell of burnt paint.

Start your fire and fill your stove full of wood. Adjust the air intake on the camp wood stove door 1/3 open after you start the fire. The stove needs to burn at around 300 - 350 degrees for 3 hours to fully cure the paint. If you build too hot of a fire initially you will burn the paint off before the paint cures on your stove.

GENERAL INFORMATION ON CAMP WOOD STOVES

CAMP WOOD STOVES: Carefully review each camp wood stove characteristics you are considering, most importantly stove dimensions. To effectively compare each stoves heating capability/size of the firebox multiply the stoves width x length x height to determine the total cubic inches of the firebox. Deduct 23% of the total firebox cubic inches if the stove is round or octagon. The size of the firebox determines the heating capability of the differen camp wood stoves you are considering. It should be noted that camp wood stoves with airtight doors significantly increases a stoves heating efficiency. If you are in a climate with very cold conditions, you might want to consider moving up one camp wood stove size above the manufacturers tent size heating recommendation.

WOOD COOK STOVE: All my camp wood stoves are very good wood cook stoves. Whatever camp stove you purchase will allow you to cook on it.

CAMP TENT STOVE STOVE AREA REQUIREMENTS IN A TENT: You must plan on a stove taking up to 7 feet along a wall in your tent. There is an automatic 2 + feet standoff from the front wall due to the stove jack location. The stove itself is normally around 2 feet in length. There is normally a 3 feet heat standoff distance from the stove before you can place a cot or table.

STOVE PIPE ABOVE RIDGE OF TENT: It is best to have your stove pipe long enough to extend 6 inches or more above the tent ridge. Having the stove pipe above the tent ridge allows the wind coming from any direction to blow sparks away the tent roof thus reducing the possibility of spark holes being burnt in the roof. You need to buy additional stove pipe if your camp wood stove has insufficient pipe included in a stove package.

FIRE TREATED CANVAS VS STOVE SPARKS: Stove sparks will even burn holes in a fire treated roof. A spark arrestor will prevent most sparks from reaching your roof. However, the only 100 per cent method to prevent spark holes in a tent roof is to use a fly to protect the roof.

REDUCE SMOKE ODOR IN YOUR HUNTING TENT: To reduce smoke in your tent always open the camp wood stove door slowly with the damper wide open. If you open the stove door quickly , the smoke is drawn into the tent.

CREOSOTE BUILD UP IN YOUR STOVE PIPE: The more you damper the stove pipe down or/and reduce the air intake on the stove door the more creosote build up you will have in the stove pipe and spark arrestor. If you get too much creosote in the stove pipe you can possibly have a fire in your stove pipe. When breaking camp, remove the creosote in your stove pipe by gently banging the stove pipes together to loosen the creosote. It is normal to periodically clean the spark arrestor every 2-3 days.

REENACTOR STOVE: The most authentic looking reenactor stove is my 4 Dog stove. All 4 Dog models are a rectangle shape compared to the current round or octagonal shape stoves.

PIPE VS PIPE STOVE OPENING: The stove pipe fits inside the pipe opening on most camp wood stoves.

CURING THE PAINT ON A NEW WOOD STOVE: Set up new outdoor stoves in your backyard or driveway and burn wood in the stove for 1-2 hour to cure the paint. Burning wood in your new stove will cause a burning smell. You will have this burning smell on your hunting clothes if you do not cure the stove at home before hunting season.

SPARK ARRESTOR : When properly used this device reduces the amount of sparks coming out of the stove pipe. Check spark arrestor daily to inure there is no buildup of creosote blocking the smoke from going through the spark arrestor.

NON FLAMMABLE AREA around you camp wood stove should be a minimum of 2 feet. This 2 foot standoff prevents any flammables from catching fire due to the stove heat, prevents sparks from popping through the air intake openings and catching flammables on fire and also in case sparks pop out when you open the stove door.

WOOD FOR STOVES: Dry hardwoods burn the most efficiently and provide the most heat. If you use soft woods you will have to cut much more firewood and you will have more creosote buildup.

NEVER USE FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS TO START A FIRE IN CAMP WOOD STOVES STOVE.

WATER HEATER: Install the spigot in the hole in the water tank. Insure you place the rubber washer on the inside of the water tank and the nut on the inside of the tank. Before starting a fire in the stove attach the water tank to the stove by using the brackets. Fill water tank with water. Always keep the water tank filled. A filled water tank prevents the washer on the spigot from melting and also warping the water tank. I recommend you remove the water tank at night to prevent any chance the water tank might go empty.

STOVE EFFICIENCY: It is best to use dry hardwoods. Standing dead trees are usually the driest wood available. However, never cut down a dead tree by yourself. Cut down dead trees at you own risk as it is very dangerous. Always have a spotter watching the top of the tree . Sometimes when a dead tree is about to fall it causes the top 5-10 feet of the tree to break off and can fall on top of you. The result will be a major accident or death.

CAMPING IN WINDY CONDITIONS: Recommend you secure all sections of stove pipe at the joints and where the pipe attaches to the camp wood stove with sheet metal screws. Windy conditions will cause the stove pipe to loosen when the tent roof billows in the wind. Also stake down the front and back ridge end of your tent at the grommet on each end of your ridge.

OUTSIDE CAMP WOOD STOVES: All my stoves can be an outside wood stove under an overhead tarp/fly. Or completely out in the open depending upon your requirements.

CAMPING STOVE RECOMMENDATIONS

RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Put 1/2" - 1" of dirt or sand in firebox to reduce heat on bottom of stove where most burn outs occur.
  • You can also cut tile to fit the bottom of your stove and then use stove glue to secure the tile. A much better system than using dirt, especially, for long term use.
  • NEVER put your stove on a tent floor or other flammable material.
  • Have a nonflammable area in front of your stove in case sparks or wood falls out of your stove when you open the door.
  • Always ensure your stove is on a level surface to avoid any possible problems.
  • Never allow your stove to get so hot that your stove or stovepipe becomes red. A red hot stove will cause the metal to warp. Reduce airflow on your door air intake to reduce the stove temperature.
  • If you are going camping in the back country I strongly recommend you take a kettle to boil drinking water 5 minutes to prevent guardia lamblia. Water in the water tank normally doesn't boil.
  • I would recommend a stove constructed of 3/32" to 1/8" steel if you are not packing in where weight is a major consideration. The heavier stoves are much more durable and will last much longer.
  • Never store your stove with ash in the firebox. The ash will draw moisture and your stove will rust.
  • If you are going to camp in very cold weather considering purchasing a stove that is one size larger than the stove designed for your size of tent. The one size larger stove will ensure that you stay warmer in very cold or wet conditions. Additionally, you will need a very warm tent to dry out wet boots and clothes.
  • Compare the listed stove heating duration of each stove you are considering vs actual size of its firebox. Some stove manufactures list very long burn times compared to other manufactures with approximately the same size of firebox.
  • Purchase a damper. A damper in the stove pipe does not allow the heat to escape quickly which increases the stove heating efficiency 10-15%.
  • Stove Heating Duration vs Tent Heating Capacity: To me, how long the fire burns at night is more important than tent size heating capability. I need a stove large enough to burn all night to dry my boots and clothes during hunting season.
