Features of Fire-Spout 100
The Fire-Spout 100 has been developed as a result of customer demand for a portable wood burning camp stove that can be operated in adverse conditions, i.e. high winds. By having only one air intake port, which can be restricted with the fuel saver fire door, the effects of high winds are reduced and in most situations have no effect. With the fuel saver fire door in the closed position the embers will remain alight for over ½ hour making it very easy to rekindle the fire. You will not have to interrupt your meal to feed the fire, it can easily be rekindled later to boil water for coffee or tea.
Clear an area of about 400mm sq. of ignitable material and as far as practicable make the area level. Assembled the Fire-Spout and position it so the exhaust port is facing down wind. Put any easily ignitable material into the top and push down (in the photo below paper is used), then place some dry sticks on top, you do not have to arrange them just throw in this initial charge of fuel. Ignite the fire and wait, in about three minutes you will have a roaring fire.
