Best Portable Wood Burning Stove 2023

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I think you’ll agree with me when I say that the idea of having a wood burner to roast marshmallows, heat the teapot and gather around on a crisp evening is very romantic.

In the past we had to make do with open campfires however in recent years there has been a surge in the creation and availability of portable wood burning stoves. Stoves vary from small compact alternatives to gas/alcohol stoves to larger encloses with a flume, able to provide heat for hours. We cover a mix in this article, we’ve recently purchased a more substantial stove which we’ll be taking with us on our van life adventure once the conversion is finished!

Features

The Guide Gear stove weighs in at 47 pounds has a decent size firebox of 11.75″w. x 16.25″d. x 10.75″h. Making it suitable for medium size logs that will burn long into the night. The space on on top is large enough to fit a large pan!

“Keeps coffee and sauce pans hot on top, brings water to a boil and cooks bacon and eggs!”

Sounds perfect to me. While this certainly isn’t suitable for a quick camping trip down to the lake, for larger groups who are more stationary this is perfect to add to the camping experience.

Pros

  • Enclosed wood burning creates a high heat
  • Stays warm for hours

Cons

  • Not portable and will be hard to move too far from vehicles

Features

This camping stove is designed to combine the best features of the two previous, we’ve included it here because it’s portable for van lifers but we don’t recommend this for pure campers.

Weighing in at 74 pounds you don’t want to carry this too far, but it’s perfect for setup to the side of the awning. With the option to dry socks and items on the rack and also cook on the large hot plate this is an amazing piece of kit to use when entertaining or in larger groups.

Features

The Canway wood burning stove is the lightweight backpackers dream, weighing in at under a pound and in a size not much more than a water bottle can this can go anywhere with you and heat up water for your rehydrated meal.

Featuring a dual burning ignition a cleverly designed intake means that combustion occurs in two stages to increase the heat the speed of heat generation as often with smaller portable stoves the main issue is needing to wait a long time for dinner to be ready. If lightweight backpacking is your thing then definitely check this one out!

Features

Just when you thought they couldn’t get any lighter Ohuhu created this ultra portable wood burning stove.

They’ve solved wind related issues by having no feeding slot, you need to remove the top of the stove in order to feed but this means once fuel is in it burn efficiently and well, with all heat directed towards the bottom of the pot. Other advantages of this over competitors is that it has large supports which stops pots from toppling over.

A portable wood-burning stove is like a tiny powerhouse that keeps you warm and cooks your grub when you’re out and about. It’s got a firebox, sometimes fancy chimney thingy, and all sorts of nifty features to make sure it works like a charm, keeping you toasty, safe and well fed on all your adventures.

This guide has been broken up into two parts, wood burning stoves for backpacks and wood burning stoves for campers. It’s been assumed that camping will allow you to park nearby and carry greater weights, hence why our recommendations are more heavy duty and capable of cooking for more people.
