You need this... Review by Bosshart 19
To start, I know this thing is designed for and intended to be utilized as a sort of incinerator to heat your water. Fine... It will do that... and leave you with one Hell of a mess to deal with. I mean who needs all those pesky ashes, nasty soot you can't seem to avoid and the general all around hassle. Nope, break out your Trangia burner (or
high quality knock-off) and enjoy. Simply put the burner in the base, install the included top grate, adjust the simmer cover to 1/3 open or less, slide it into the grate's opening and have at it. SIMMER COVER IS IMPERATIVE HERE. I carry 2 simmer covers so that there is a cool one immediately at hand to quell the flame when the Samovar is removed from the base.
A full small size unit will be at full boil in under 4 minutes... and this being regardless of weather conditions (other than extreme cold, which requires some experience to master).
This is a highly recommended purchase regardless of what fueling you choose... I have tried scavenged wood, pine cones and trail trash, all of which produced the necessary heat and associated cleanup, but I won't again unless I run out of Heet. After all, who chooses work over relaxation when on 'Holiday'? (Posted on 10/22/18)

Camping Gear: Big vs. Little

Modify a Small Axe For Your Use

"In one sentence, the great thing about these cooking systems is how they are light and compact to carry, heat water really fast with any kind of combustible material…and there’s no buildup of soot on the outside which makes packing and carrying them clean and easy. “

- Mr. Subjective

Cooking with Sticks and Twigs

Nearly everywhere you’ll ever camp you’ll find all kinds of combustible hot-burning biomass. Sticks and twigs the size of your thumb and smaller. This stuff is way faster and easier to light and to cook with that you’d think, burns nearly smokelessly, and will reliably provide more than enough heat for all kinds of trail cookery.

But why go Neanderthal now, with all those ingenious little gas stoves available? Because A) it’s less stuff to carry so you’ll travel lighter, and B) it’s nearly as fast to gather the fuel and then heat a liter of water as it is to do the same job with a hissing stove. And C), it’s a lot cleaner than you’d think. Soot is confined within the ‘chimney’ of samovar-kettles so you never touch it, and flat-folding stoves come with fabric storage sleeves.

What if it’s been raining all day and everything is wet? Uhh…Dead limbs still attached to trees usually remain dry enough to ignite quickly with only a little help from an accelerant like a small piece of dry paper or a few drips of gasoline, or one or two Esbit fuel tabs (#4113). After they are going the heat provided will dry wetter stuff added later. But when it’s really raining super-hard find a motel and eat at a diner -- (even if you are carrying a gas stove).

About the only places you cannot quickly and easily find sticks and twigs are a few high desert locations.
