Wood gas is formed by the destructive distillation of wood. Amongst other gases, the main constituent of wood gas is carbon monoxide, a flammable (but highly toxic!) gas. Do not use this stove indoors.

Wood gasification offers a highly efficient and largely smokeless method for cooking.

Do not be tricked into buying a commercial wood gas stove with an electric fan. If you build your own stove properly then there will be sufficient air throughput without recourse to a fan. You will also save yourself a lot of money. Anyway, who goes camping and takes a fan with them!?

This video shows you the operation of a wood gas stove.

It's refreshing to see a video with no music /.commentary track (like your others) and just the natural sound (inc the birds)<br /> Nice video, serious-looking stove.<br /> <br /> L
Thank you.<br /> <br /> I hate the sound of my voice so nobody is ever going to hear it online.<br /> <br /> Nor will you hear music on my videos as there is one thing you can be sure about musical tastes; everybody's is different and everybody hates each others.<br />
I agree. You show the process, we hear the subtle noises and see how it works.<br /> <br /> L<br />
