This is a great piece of equipment for home, camping and a emergency situation. It burns wood and very little of it, to cook on. I highly recomend this just because of ease of use and it simply works. You wouldn't backpack with it of course but in the truck, trailer, home it is killer. And no white gas, propane or other fuels needed. It has been tested all over the world. Starts very easy and cooks with very little if any smoke at all. The blizzard was hitting hard here and thought I would post this for you guys- girls. When I cook on it it is the topic of everyones conversation. Enjoy the vid of it in use.
