Today I want to discuss, how to manage a wood stove inside of your hot tent. Let’s talk about wood first, and the type of wood you would gather. to be able to use to burn inside the stove. Just like you would do with any campfire, you’re going to want to gather, and initially build your fire with just small pieces of wood, and once you get it burning really well and got coal base starting to build up, in the bottom of the stove. Then you can start to add thicker and bigger pieces that are going to burn longer, and create a hotter burning fire. Then you can start to add, just the really big pieces, but notice they are short, make sure they don’t exceed the length of the stove. typically when you’re out with a wood stove you’re going to be in not the greatest of weather. and so you’re likely going to have wet wood, it might be covered in snow, so you want to take advantage of the heat coming from the stove to be able to basically dry out the wood by putting the wood on the underside of the stove. Now the next thing to consider is how the air intake and the damper work together to make the stove more efficient so here on the front of the stove you have an air intake that is adjustable that basically works to allow air to be drawn into the fire box and so you can adjust this to change the amount of air intake into the stove which will change how fast or quickly the wood is going to burn. Now with the damper What you’ve got here is the ability to adjust how the air intake is drawn from the front of the stove and then up and out through the chimney. The second part of the damper is to be able to basically force heat back down into the belly of the stove so that you’re heating up the tent and you’re not losing all of your heat and it’s not escaping up through the chimney pipe. Now the last thing to talk about is how you might prepare the stove for bedtime so that you get the most heat out of it for the longest period of time. So what you want to do, like we talked about earlier is with your biggest pieces you don’t necessarily want to put them underneath the belly of the stove you kind of want them to be a little bit wet because this will help prolong the length of time that they burn. You want to make sure the stove has burned for a good period of time, because you want to have a really good coal base in the bottom of the stove. so when you throw those in, you got that good coal base, and then shut your door. Then you are going to shut your damper all the way, and that will allow these pieces to burn for a long time, create good heat inside of the tent to just be a nice, cozy evening of sleep. we hope you found that helpful, different ways to manage a wood stove inside of your tent if you have questions or comments please leave them down below.
