Question for Bushbuddy/SoloStove owners
Could you please measure the depth from the top of the main stove body (not with the pot stand) down to the fire grate?I am a Scoutmaster and as a project to encourage my scouts to cook with fire, I'm building some DIY wood stoves out of soup cans inside 1 qt paint cans. My prototype didn't burn as well as I thought it should and I suspect the grate is too low in the can.Thanks in advance.
Looks to be 2 and 3/16ths or 2.1875 to the top outer wall from the fire grate and about 2 inches to the grate from the inner lip/wall. I'll post a pic for clarity...I don't know the technical terms for stoves. Edit: Excuse my horrible tape measure, my good one is in my work truck.

Thank you sooo much for posting that for me!
No problem! I was playing with my new jetboil and already had my stove stuff out, including the bush buddy. If you need any more pics or measurements lemme know, I just got a new camera as well :D I'm armed and ready to help. Haha
