Disclosure: Four Dog Stove sent me this stove to test after reading about my frustrations with another wood stove. In return I agreed to post my impressions about the stove (good or bad) on this forum.


This backpacking stove is one of the few light-weight titanium ones that is designed for group cooking (3+ people). It is perfect for what I need because I am frequently cooking for 5 when I take my family out on backpacking trips. What I like:

- Multi-fuel: burns alcohol, wood, charcoal briquettes, wood pellets, Esbit, etc.

- Stable: supports large pots (2L or more)

- Large capacity: doesen't require constant feeding like some of the other stoves with a smaller firebox

- Double-walled: once it gets going it is almost completely smokeless due to the secondary burn

- Light-weight: mine weighs-in at 5 oz

- Works with almost any sized pot

- Compact: fits perfectly in the Snow Peak Trek 1400 pot.

- Competitively priced: $105

What I don't like:

- Unlike the Bushbuddy, the bottom of the stove gets very hot and so you have to be careful where you burn it

- Finding a windscreen configuration that works can be difficult due to the stove height
