Fire Thermos

Postby zelph » Fri Dec 25, 2009 7:07 pm

We recently saw the introduction of the Fire Mug and all of a sudden this video shows up next to my wood burning stove on youtube. I thought everyone might be interested in keeping their eyes open for a used thermos type container at the thrift stores to try their hand at a larger stainless steel wood burner/cooking pot combination.

Most thermoses I see seem to be way too heavy to even start thinking that way..Did you see how black and sooty his hands are from just doing the video? :lol:

The rest of his videos are fairly entertaining. I'm sure the thermos stove will work, but like you said, soot and wood are buds.

One woodstove that Imade did not collect any soot or creosote. It was the Globe Stove. The pot got sooty and got the creosote, but not the stove. I don't know why :shock: :shock: :shock:

Maybe it had to do with lack of continuous surface along with air flow?

Air flow is probably the reason, I can see how that might prevent the formation. Half the soot problem is solved :D

Here's a couple of corrugated aluminum thermosii, which I've acquired with stove building in mind.. Pretty strong Al but maybe not suitable for wood stoves.

These are old glass thermos "king seely" make. The larger one I'm using for coffee still, until I drop it and break it.. Glass thermos is fragile, but man it's 100% more efficient at keeping shit hot.
