    Hi Jack,
    didnt say what kind of wood, but have made one myself out of a small softwood log, burnt green and for ages and found you can even adjust the burn by turning into or away from the wind. Lit mine with a small piece of firelighter, easy !

    We ride snowmobiles and that would be a nice way to cook hot dogs along the trail.

    Looks a bit like a swedish candle/torch to me, you get the flat top and a burn which will warm you too:

    Looks a little lower and slower than the Swedish candle. I guess they each have a niche in use.

    This one seems to insulate itself

    Very cool
