Cooking outdoors is a wonderful, primal experience, but most camping stoves run on propane or other fossil fuels, which are horrible for the environment we’re trying to protect. Enter the FRIDAEL “woodgas” stove, which runs on wood chips, pine cones, and twigs, so you can use sweepings from your own garden to fuel your cookout or garden party. Its design ensures that the wood is burned efficiently, with hardly any smoke produced in the process. Additionally, the only by-product created is wood ash, which makes a great fertilizer for your garden! This type of mini wood stove is also ideal to keep on hand for emergency situations: as long as you have access to the outdoors, you can gather all the fuel you need from treed areas and gardens nearby instead of worrying about dwindling gas or oil supplies.
