Wood Burning Stove for Overnights

I have been looking into wood burning stoves with a flue that I can put into a yurt-like structure. The motivation is a 25-day Grand trip in the middle of January, driftwood is free to harvest that time of the year, and we don't particularly want to freeze our a$$es off over night. Also, the idea of cooking in a warm enclosure is very appealing.

I was thinking an ammo can stove like the ones found here. Does anyone have any advice on this sort of thing? Everything from stove (I am willing to make my own or buy one) to tent setup is up in the air.

Thanks Jefe, have you used this one in the past? What kind of enclosure did you use? modified tent?

We used one on our Jan trip a few years back. Was great to have a few nights but only came out a handful of time (like 6 days straight of rain). We used it under tarps so a tipi setup could obviously provide greater benefit and warmth.

In reality we found a classic fire pan to be more enjoyable most of the time. The glow/light alone is worth a lot in the winter. We only setup up camp structures when there was rain. Being outside in the canyon is half the charm.

Make sure to bring some type of spark arrester if you want to use it around any sort of nylon structure. Also plan on wood hunting well in advance of the majority of camps as wood is only abundant in a few places.

outdoor wood stoves, Riley Stove Company Townsend, MT Home

I have used these in a wall tent.. they are light weight and everything fits inside of them.. it says to put a little sand or dirt in the bottom to help insulate it because they are thin..

Thanks for the feedback everyone! Those seekoutside tipis look great... Also I'll definitely consider the Ceiba stove. Cheers!
