PostSubject: Volcano Stove   Mon Jun 21, 2010 11:50 am

Hello friends..
I am going on a camping trip next month with my friends. Last night while searching information on camping gears I found a Volcano stove at Costco through http://www.dealrocker.com discount deal. The best point of this stove is that it is a multi-fuel (charcoal, propane, wood). Does anyone have any experience with this stove? I want to know other campers' views on Volcano stove before gonna buy it.

Advice and views are welcome.

I couldnt have cooked using beads here without it or a Cobb. Although there is not a fire ban in the area the caravan park like many places have decreed a "Complete Fire Ban". A phone call got me permission to use heat beads for cooking and I am in a discreet corner and there has been no complaints.

I feel its still being tested by me for my own uses and its coming up pretty good. I can lift and move it reasonably well which is a plus for me. I dont feel confident enough with my cooking yet to be in the all around the fireside cooking at cogs so it means I can cook in an environment I can cope with.

Its a pity it doesnt have the gas connection they have in the usa as that would add to its usefulness. Sparky will look at that in due course. I have a Camp Oven Mate that covers that but the whole idea for me is to cut back at times the amount of equipment taken camping.

I like that it fits my existing cast iron and Sparky the compactness of it and so far (except for the rye bread) the food I have cooked him this week.

I realise I am using it simply as a fireplace and it can cook food in a lot more ways but thats mostly what I wanted it for and thats what I am practising at the moment




A Volcano Cook Stove will take up to 30 Heat Beads and up to a 12" camp oven. The ashed up Heat Beads are pushed to the side of the fire chamber so the fire is not directly under the pot.

"The heat generated by the coals is a combination of the vent setting in the bottom of the stove and the ability of that incoming air to escape out the top through the slotted grill when in place. Look at it where the bottom vents are a fine adjustment and any restriction on top of the slotted grill is a coarse adjustment. It is really up to you as to how much air you want to block. Placing a restrictor plate similar to the size of that which I have in the book guarantees that the bottom of a Dutch oven receives minimum heat. Lots of heat directly on the bottom of a Dutch oven will cause food to burn. I hope that answers your question David.
When the radiant heat from the charcoal is reflected back into the stove, with the centre grill in place, the fire generates more superheated air without requiring more energy from the coals. The available superheated air is allowed to get hotter than it would be if it were allowed to escape with no restriction. This stove was not designed to use the radiant heat from the coals, but instead use the controllable super heated airflow generated by controlling combustion in the fire chamber. FOR PEOPLE THAT USE THE STOVE ONLY FOR GRILLING A HAMBURGER NOW AND THEN, THE STOVE IS PROBABLY CONFUSING.

after haveing a look at 1 on the net if it's just you & the wife or gf i think its a great idea, but if it's to be used with a family id'e be a little concerned wether it was going to be large enough to cook all your needs.
