Unleash up to 45,000 BTUs! Large, all-steel Barrel Stove / Heater is a dual fuel U.S. Military version. Accepts liquid fuels such as diesel, gasoline, even jet fuel. Also burns solid fuels such as wood or coal.
During its service, stoves like this ran diesel, gas or JP4 for the big spenders.
We threw in an insert for burning wood, which you'll want to do most of the time.
But if you've got a fresh barrel of diesel sitting in your shed,
and we certainly did,
you might what to kick your heat into high-octane heaven.
Start with the bottom half and add the basket and center pole. This is going to vaporize your fuel and provide a nice, even burn.
Seal the cover shut and slide on the fuel regulator.
This regulator controls both the type of fuel and the size of your flame.
Take the hose and hook one end to the regulator and the other to your fuel tank.
The run off hose keeps extra fuel from building up, so feed this off to a safe, out of the way place.
Set your tank up high so gravity keeps the juice flowing at a good rate.
Also, make sure you've extended your stove pipe to keep the smoke above your head and out of your conversation.
Finally, you need to prime the basket.
Use the spigot to pour a half cup of fuel and pour it right in the top.
Now just add fire.
Jumping Cats, we have ignition!
As the primer burns, suction pulls more fuel up into the expansion chamber.
So sit back with your buddies and watch your barrel of dinosaur squeezins turn into a rip-roaring chill-busting blaze.
Thanks for choosing us, and we hope you enjoy the fire!
