And there I went again, thinking that I have seen everything...
Swedish Candle . . . I made a few of these last year. Pretty neat to see . . . especially at night when the light radiates out through the cut marks.
You have seen these before . . . well maybe not someone cooking on them . . . or using a slime lime green chainsaw to make them.
Thats the part I was talking about. Who wudda thunk it?
The way I cut, everything would be running over the edge of the pan on one side.
Pretty neat. I'm not familiar with these, what do you use for a "wick"? Can you cram a 1/4 super cedar down there and light it? Any particular species of wood work best?
That's awesome. Just the thing for one of those 10-12" Cherry rounds I got last Thursday.I can smell the ribeye,onions,peppers & mushrooms in that old cast iron skillet already.....
See Jay? Now there's no excuse to bring a bag lunch while processing firewood! Bring a chuck wagon and feed the crew!
Seriously, nifty idea!
Thanks for sharing - I never saw this before. Very cool. As someone else asked, how do you light it and is there any woods best for it? Can't wait to surprise my wife/family with one some night.
I can only speak to my own . . . since I ended up cutting the wood the same day I lit it I ended up using some tinder, part of a Super Cedar crammed into the crevice and some lighter fluid before the "candle" finally took off. If I was to do this again I would cut it up several weeks to months ahead of time.
What's the best wood for smoars?.......Marsh Willow!
Very cool idea.
A wooden, 1 burner, wood burning cook stove.
Timer built in by what type of wood you make it from.
Pine, fast cooking meals, Oak - longer cooking times
I'm thinking the same thing. Dammit...now I have to try it.
Geeze, you people... Now my mouth is watering. Like Pavlov's dog! What a cool idea.
I like. Now i have to keep some round just for that. I also need to get/make a grate for my fire pit.
I know whata I'm gonna do w/all that big elm I get
Very cool ADKJAKE! Thanks for sharin man. Appreciate it.
I have a piece of elm that I found a solution for now too! I HATE THAT STUFF!
I went to a big party last year late in the season.
they had about 6 of those about 6 ft tall burning.
each one had people standing around keeping warm.
very cool idea. looks cool in the black of night from a distance too.
I never thought about using one for cooking on.
thats a new camping trick I can try this year.
Quick question...you put anything on the inside to start it up?
I recommend something less than 6 feet tall if you're planning on cooking on it.
What a cool idea!! Got some big dry soft maple I was gonna split- now I'm just gonna lice ot for campstoves!
Great Idea!! I'll carve a couple soon to dry for fall camp fires.
Diesel fuel or charcoal lighter is what I use. Make em outta hardwood & you can get 4-5 hour burns. Great for cooking. A C
