Not All Camp Stove Are Created Equal
If you came here looking for a camp stove for your next hunting trip, or any outdoor adventure that requires enough heat to warm up a wall tent, then this should be your last stop!
You are about to see the most rugged and portable camp stove available today. The Ellis Stove was designed and is manufactured by Butch Ellis, a long time Elk hunter and employee of the US Forest Service.
Here's what Butch has to say about camp stoves...
A Good Stove Must Be Truly Portable
Most of the stoves I have tried over the years really were a decent Portable Woodstove, but they all lacked one important feature....portability. The all said they were portable, and that was true...sort of.
Some stoves have no way to break them down. Sure you can pack them on a horse, but they take up too much space and are just too bulky. Other stoves come with an assortment of bolts and nuts required for assembly. The last thing I want to do is spend 20 minutes putting together my stove after a long day packing in. And that bag of hardware is always looking for a way to get lost in the undergrowth. Not my idea of a good time!
A Rugged Stove For The Serious Camper
This is the best portable stove you will ever find. That may sound like a bold statement, but after you see the features I'm sure you'll agree. Quality is never compromised and each stove is hand built one at a time. I have spent 10 years perfecting this stove to be the best Portable Woodstove out there for portability, ease of use, and warmth. This stove will produce an incredible amount of heat for a small package, and takes only seconds to set up and tear down.
The fire box is constructed of 20 gauge cold rolled steel and will burn wood or coal. Legs are constructed with 3/16 " by 1/2" steel. The stove pipe consists of 5 joints 22 inches long, constructed of 26 gauge cold rolled steel with a 4" opening. The pipe pieces nest together for ease of packing. Total weight is 35 Pounds Including stove pipe.
The stove is broken down by removing 2 pins and folding the back & front of the stove in under the bottom of the fire box. The two sides of the stove fold in like an accordion allowing the top to rest on the bottom of the stove. The legs fold as the front & back of the stove are being folded. This process only takes about 15 seconds.
Firebox 11" x 14" x 23"
Stands 21" high Folded:
14" x 23" x 1 1/2"
Stove Pipe Diameter: 5" at outlet tapering to 4" at stove end.
The Ellis Stove Comes To Life
About 10 years ago I decided to solve the problem for myself. The ideal stove had to have three key features:
1. Lightweight but strong enough to withstand years of rugged use.
2. The ability to break down and set up quickly without extra parts to lose.
3. Small in size but able to produce enough heat for a wall tent.
My first attempts were a bit crude, but I stayed the course and decided not to compromise any of the features I truly needed. Necessity really is the mother of invention, and after much trial and error I believe I have built the best portable stove available today.
