Thanks for looking! I just bought a 10x12 panther primitive wall tent and in the process of researching a good wood stove for it (I looked at Wall Tent Shop- I liked the Idaho Stove, and Big Sky Canvas- I liked the Spruce Stove). I plan to take the tent up to the ADKs on a two week trapping trip in mid November for its maiden voyage…temps sometimes drop to single digits but typically teens (F). I like the idea of the water warming tank on the side of the stove. I’m hoping to use the tent/stove a bunch as well as setting it up at some primitive rendezvous (the stove doesn’t need to be period correct)…

Thanks in advanced for any suggestions I can look into.

Dino

I built this one from a fifty gallon drum. The lid is the bottom of the fire box now. The door is made from the cut out on the bottom and reinforced with the clamp that holds the lid on cut to size. Works great. Made a grate from some angle iron from a bed frame and a piece of horse panel. the stove pipe, grate and spark arrestor all fit inside the stove.

got the idea from white 17 and it was a good one

The best tent stove that I've ever had or been around was my M-1950 Yukon. Mine is a surplus stove that came with the collapsible pipe and a liquid fuel adapter. It all fits inside the stove and its lightweight. I didnt think I'd want the liquid fuel option until i tried it. A 5 gal jerry can of gas kept my 17ftx17ft canvas tent at 70 deg for a day when the outside temps were in the teens with heavy winds.

Yours is much nicer than the one I made, but this style is awesome and used one for a few seasons. Holds a lot of wood. I rigged up a little rack on the side and always kept a few small stones there. Perfect to drop into your boots for a few minutes before putting on

Take a look at Four Dog Stoves. I had their smaller 2 dog model in my 10x10 wall tent and it was a bit small for low teen temps when sleeping on the ground. (The upper part of the tent was plenty warm) You might want the larger model for the temps you expect to have. They also have the water tank option but keep in mind that it is a heat sink. A pot that you can put on and take off might make more sense.

How long does that 55 gal drum stove burn? Looks like a good idea.

Depends on how tight you can build it and what wood you are using.
In mine, I can get about 6 hours using dry birch.

For awhile he was only making the titanium stoves but I see on the website the larger one (4 dog). These are really good stoves in my opinion. I’ve had 2 of them for years.

Dino, I have a 12x 12 pyramid with a 2 Dog stove with water tank and it stays plenty warm, trapped bobcats in nw pa for a week and we were mighty comfortable, dry mittens and socks hangin on the one pole sure felt good in the mornings ( teens last week of Dec.) Frosting on the cake we got our cat. The only draw back to the water jacket is losing water overnite due to evaporation, If ya got lots of water on hand no problem. Bob

The stove heat is either boiling the water off or driving the evaporation rate. Either way it's adding moisture to the air in the tent and is a waste of energy because it's not going into heating the air. IMO a pot that you put on and take off makes more sense.

EdP, you are right about the evaporation. It is the price you pay for constant hot water smile Bob

I have a Kni-Co in my Snowtrekker Basecamp EXP 11x13. Light tent and light packable stove. Shelves and pipe all packs into the fire box. Been burning this one since 2013 with no problems. Got a water tank for it, but wasn't that useful. Having a kettle is way easier and quicker. Not as useful as you would think IMO. Shelves are great.

I will add to the confusion - here is a stove that I bought - it has a baffle in it - it burns more efficient

Russian Bear wood stove

here is the same stove-- a Canadian Distributor - It is cheaper to buy from Canada with exchange rate Canadian Russian Bear Stove

I can get a lot more wood in a top loader for its size than any front loader Ive tried. This small barrel works food in little tents. I have a 45gal top loading barrel for the big tent.

In my experience, one drawback to a full sized vertical drum is that the fire is too far below the cooking surface. If you want a quick meal it will almost run you out of the tent while trying to cook it. Not a bad feature though if it's 50 below

That’s for sure White. You need as asbestos chaps if your going to fry steaks on it. Not bad for keeping coffee hot or cooking an all day stew though. I usually have a Coleman stove along for main meal cooking or at least a burner for fast boiling. I can get a pot of coffee perking in the AM on the barrel when I load it up and open vents in the morning but too hot for regular cooking.

Nice thing is when fully loaded and dampened down it lasts all night fer sure. Rarely have to strike a match after returning to camp after a long day either. Usually enough coals to just add wood and open vents.
