WILDERNESS CAMPING WOOD STOVE CHARACTERISTICS
- Standard package: stove, pipe, damper and spark arrestor/rain cap side shelf.
- Deluxe package: Water tank and grate added to standard package.
- RAIN T-CAP: We recommend the use of a T-cap with spark arrestor at all times. The spark arrester keeps large pieces of soot and ash from coming out of the end of the pipe and landing on the tent roof. The T-cap top will keep wind from blowing down the pipe and puffing smoke into your tent (T section of cap should be turned in opposite direction of the wind so it can not blow directly into pipe).
- Baffle behind air intake prevents any sparks from shooting out the air intake openings into the tent.
For the money, size of stove and quality, the Wilderness stove is highly recommended.
There is not another heavy stove package on the market that has the options listed in the wilderness wood camping stove standard or deluxe packages for such a reasonable price.
The Wilderness stove will provide many years of service due to its heavy duty construction in combination with its thicker than normal steel. Welds are solid and with numerous reinforcement bars there is a small probability the stove will ever warp.
If you want to cook on the stove there is a natural hot spot near the stove pipe. Stove top cooking temperature can be regulated better than most stoves due to its gasketed airtight door which allows the rate of burn to be better controlled.
All accessories fit inside the stove except the Wilderrness 3. This feature makes it great for storing your stove and knowing when you take the wilderness camping stove out camping next year you will not be concerned about missing parts.
Some stove companies recommend putting dirt or sand in the bottom of stove firebox to prevent burn out or warping. This is not a requirement for wilderness camping wood stoves due to the thickness of steel used in the firebox.
Insure that you remove all ash from the fire box when storing. Ash absorbs moisture in the air and will result in rust developing on the bottom of stove.

SAFETY/ SMOKE ISSUES: ALL SPARK ARRESTORS WILL BECOME CLOGGED WITH ASH AND SOOT. REMEMBER TO CHECK YOUR SPARK ARRESTOR DAILY AND CLEAN SPARK ARRESTOR AS REQUIRED. USING SOFT WOOD AND LOWER TEMPERATURE STOVE BURNS WILL CAUSE THE SPARK ARRESTOR TO BE CLOGGED SOONER. A CLOGGED SPARK ARRESTOR WILL CAUSE SMOKE TO ESCAPE FROM THE STOVE DOOR INTAKE AND WHEN OPENING DOOR. AND IN EXTREME CASES, A STOVE PIPE FIRE.
DAMPER: DAMPER MUST BE IN TOTALLY OPEN POSITION WHEN OPENING THE STOVE DOOR OR SMOKE WILL COME OUT THE STOVE DOOR. FOR DAMPER INSTALLATION VIEW WILDERNESS STOVE VIDEO.
