Caldera Cone- wood burner??? on 02/06/2008 10:56:56 MST Print View

I have a standard Caldera Cone and was wondering if they will be fine useing them as a wood burner stove with little alteration?
They have a titanium cone which uses tent pegs to raise the pot, it is possable on my cone, will the aluminum cone last useing wood??

good idea, but no on 02/06/2008 11:30:08 MST Print View

You'll melt the aluminum cone with the direct flame. I've been working with aluminum Bushbuddy designs and learned this quickly. Cool idea but you'll need steel or titanium.
