... and I suppose I'm the one most capable, well versed, and finally............ stupid.

I was intrigued the other day by a link that Nudenut put up, regarding air forced kindling stoves.

Well, I got thinking............

Cobb Oven.
12 volt computer fan, slim-line.
Cigarette Lighter Plug.
Wire.
Maybe a voltage control, or something that lets me regulate speed of the fan.

So, we can all see where this is going............

"Why Wolfie, why?"

Because to get a hot fire, you may have to use 8 beads, and you may only want to cook for 1/2 hour, then the beads smoulder / burn like for another couple of hours.......... wasteful. Why not use 2 beads, or maybe one, and fan force it.

So, probably another piece of cutting edge technology (LOL!!) to come out from my little shed!!

Anyone would think I have a stove fetish.............

Wolf on fire.

As soon as we finish cooking we just put the heatbeads into an old milo tin and drop the lid on (don't seal it at first, because the beads heat the air up and will pop the lid!)

They go out in a few minutes and are there ready to go for next time.

Cheers

Yes I do that with my small Weber. Just close off the vents after cooking and the beads go out.

Each time I use it I just add a couple more beads rather than replace the lot. They may only be cheap but why waste them!

Whats wrong with a good old fire? Few small sticks, some grass, one match(or a flint if you wish) and you have a kitchen. Kick some sand over the fire when you are finished...too easy.

Then Wolfie it is not to far to go to make a small blast furnace to melt down any gold tailings you may find into useable nuggets....
