    Greetings, @Tony Press , and All,

    Well, time has passed, and last night, I pulled the trigger on another of these fine stoves! Price was fair, and the shipping, though high, was also fair, since the stove is a weighty one, and it's coming from overseas! It has been used, but appears to be in good shape, with all it's tools, bits and bobs, and also the spares. So, now, I have one to enjoy unfired, and one to fire up and use!! YIPPEE!!! Good things come to he who waits, and in this case, all that waiting appears to have paid off, big time!! I'll post both of my stoves here, when this recent buy arrives, safe and sound! Thanks for inspiring me to be vigilant, and keep looking, Tony, as well as Ken, John, and others who have, and love this stove!! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Go, @Doc Mark!

    You will not be displeased. Sitting on a bench or table with a windshield, it will cook up a fine meal at CASAG.

    Cheers

    Tony

    @Doc Mark

    You can look forward to this kind of thing (from my various road trips posted here at CCS):

    Hey, Tony!

    Yes, I well remember this post when you first shared it!! I remember John's highly detailed posts about this stove, too, and have read most all the other things on this particular forum about the Geniol stove. Seems like a winner, no matter how you slice it!! I'm hoping mine hasn't been buggered up with cheap diesel fuel, but judging by it's nice condition, I would doubt that it is. Fingers crossed on that one, though..... Thanks, again, and God Bless!

    Doc

    PS - and yes, I'm hoping to use this stove at the upcoming CASG #11!!!

    @Ed Winskill

    “Kanga” is short for kangaroo (or wallaby) meat.

    It’s lean and excellent!

    Cheers

    That I figured! Are those kanga steaks? Does one hunt kangaroos? Or is it a matter of commercial raising of the critters?

    They are not kanga steaks.

    Most kangaroo and wallaby is wild shot by commercial shooters. It is not farmed.

    Here in Tasmania one can’t hunt wallaby with a private shooter’s permit.

    Cheers

    An excellent stove. Alcohol preheat, alow opening, a strong finisher.
    A nice windscreen helps the preheat.

    Is there any private hunting in Oz? Thinking about it, I've never heard so, one way or another. On the other hand, especially with the invasive animals such as rabbits, I would guess that there is, at least to some extent.

    I know that there is in NZ, which at least at one time was world-famous for deer hunting. The present situation, I don't know. I'd be interested in that, too.

    There is private hunting in Australia.

    Here in Tasmania, where feral deer numbers are increasing significantly due in part to decline in the Tasmanian Devil population (lower predation on young deer), deer paradoxically are better protected than some native species...

    I get deer meat from time from the butcher; and from my stepson, who is a deer hunter.

    Cheers

    I find this stove very easy to use and fettle. @presscall did a very informative writeup and teardown on this stove.

    I recently found out that replacement parts for this stove can make this hobby expensive.

    Great post on the Heinz Geniol.

    We also enjoyed the roo and wallaby meat at a picnic in Honville next to the river.
