We are thinking outside the box and made ourselves a camp stove out of ductwork!
It really was super simple and all the supplies can be found at Lowes.
Supplies For DIY Camp Stove
6″ x 6″ x 6″ galvanized Tee duct
6″ galvanized duct collar
6″ galvanized damper
6″ round duct cap
4″ x 4″ x 8″ Step Flashing
4 – 60D Hot Galvanized Polebarn nails
#10 x 1/2″ phillips head metal pan screws
#8 flat washers
How To Build A Camp Stove
First, flatten the step flashing.
Hook the duct cap to the flattened step flashing with four screws. Drill pilot holes first to make this easier.
Drill a 1/4″hole in each corner of the flattened step flashing. This will give the cooker a place to be staked so it won’t tip over.
Install the damper by drilling a hole in the top side of the tee that points out to the side.
Unhook the collar by removing the small metal clip.
Fit the collar into the top of the tee, drill a hole, and fasten with a screw.
Spread the flanges in and out all the way around the top of the collar. Set the tee onto the cap that was attached to the flattened step flashing.
Build your fire inside and you are ready to get cookin!
