I am sure I read that the Bush Cooker by Qvist was the BushBuddy made under license because Fritz didn't want the problems of selling to Europe, but in an interview here
he makes it obvious that this is not the case.
What do you think of the Bushcooker wood stove, and other wood stove designs out there? Do you maybe even own some of them?
I have mentioned the Trail stove and the Caldera cone. I do not own either of these stoves, but I think both are good stoves for wood burning, though with the drawback of charring the ground. I have not used the Bushcooker, but it appears to be very similar to the Bushbuddy. I did notice on the Outdoor Station video with Bob Cartwright that the internal construction of the Bushcooker is different, there is no ashpan below the grate. The primary air comes in through holes around the side of the lower part of the firebox wall, below the grate. This would make the stove easier to manufacture, eliminating the need to make the ashpan, and potentially lighter. There would be less shielding of the bottom of the stove from the radiant heat of the fire with this design, but that may not be as important to many people as making a good, useful stove available at a lower price.
I have tended to assume that these were effectively the same stove, and that comments about lighting/using either stove were interchangeable, but if this is correct, this is obviously not the case.
