Zoe's new camp stove

Well our new camp stove just arrived in the mail a few days ago.  Now we'll have a way to heat the hot tent that I just made.  Our tent is much smaller than the standard hot tent so we decided that a smaller stove would be sufficient to heat it.  We eventually settled on the Packer Jr. made by Kni-co manufacturing.  The fire box dimensions are 10 x 10 x 12 inches, with the legs fully extended it stands 14 inches high.  We purchased the package that includes 3inch tapered stove pipe, a flew, and a spark arrestor. To keep it from rusting I painted the outside with a high temperature BBQ paint.

The first burn gets rid of any oil or residue from manufacturing

How did the paint hold up?

You mention the paint is to prevent rusting, but I think the rusting would primarily be from the inside due to the caustic ash. Best way to avoid rusting seems to be clean it out and spray with oil to exclude moisture.

Thank you for taking some time to write this post. When backpacking for your next hiking or camping trip, you don’t just pack a bit of food, clothes and a sleeping bag. Hikers and campers almost always need to boil water or cook some easy meal. This means that they need a camping or backpacking stove. See more

The camp warming stove is such an ingenious idea, one which I will employ when camping in winter. I like the construction of the stove, and from how it looks I think it is a good gear for car camping. Get more tips on how to shop for backpacking stoves here:
