Winter Camping With Ammo Can Wood Stove

In this video, I show you what I've been testing for our winter camping excursion and how my ammo wood can stove worked. I used a standard 50 cal ammo can and 4 inch heating duct pipe to act as stove and chimney. What we wanted to do was "hot tenting" or winter camping using a canvas shelter and the wood stove as a heat source. I also wanted to try cooking on it. I tried chicken a la king and warmed up some irish stew with my zebra pot. I found the cooking surface to be small and might take a little longer warming up foods or water with it. The fuel I used ranged from spruce to hardwood and compressed saw dust logs. I found that wood worked better, but the size of the ammo can made it so you had to re stock it fairly often.
