    Man that's some tasty campfood! @The Warrior
    I have one of those Omnia ovens but not very good friends with it.

    Yours seems to actually work for serious baking.

    Loving the Kelly Kettle, took it outside for a quick lunch today.
    Super efficient with fuel, just a few sticks needed....

    Took my Kelly Kettle out on the trail today.
    Amazing how quick my water boils and how little fuel it uses... Half the kindling I prepare always remains unused :D

    Out on a hike today, stopped for a little hot drink on the Firebox Nano in the rain.

    These kettles are amazing. Bulky to carry but quick boils due to the great airflow through the chimney. Bringing a big smile on my face everytime I put the ketttle on the base. The fire really gets a boost when doing that.

    try using nothing but fatwood in your kettle . The smoke ignites - it's pretty epic

    It's pretty epic once it gets going. Plus it builds up a hard black creosote layer inside the chimney. The blacker / thicker the buildup , the faster the water boils due to the water jacket walls rapidly absorbing that radiant heat.

    :D These are the only chimneys you want a fire in :D

    Decided to hang out on the back porch for a bit today and fire up a stove.... then drug out a few more for fun. The UCO flatpack is a bit of a smoldering mess most times, doesn't breath well with wood.. decent to BBQ with charcoal though. Firebox Freestyle middle, and the one on the right is the Simple Theory Gear Pack Stove, great no frills heavy duty piece of kit.
