    I’m late to the party with one of these, but with the intention of using my Bushbuddy Ultra more I took the recommendation of the designer of the ultra-light stove, Fritz Handel, to couple it with the Snow Peak lightweight pot.

    Fritz Handel’s instruction sheet reference to the Snow Peak pot.

    The Bushbuddy is indeed easily stowed in the pot.

    A good combination.

    Before moving on to some details of the pot, it’s a detail on its stuff sack that caught my eye initially.

    The item I was impressed by was the toggle, artfully made of wood and not plastic as one usually would be made of. I was put in mind of a Japanese netsuke, as a utilitarian object made a bit special.

    Capacity markings in fluid ounces and fractions of a litre stamped in the inside wall of the pot.

    Manufacturer’s marks elsewhere.

    On the frying pan ...

    Using the pan as a lid for the pot, its got to be this way up.

    This way, it topples off with the agitation of boiling.

    Remarkable lightweight combination there John.

    Certainly less than the SS Cbinese stove and Zebra pot, which reminds me they need re introducing at some point Is the Bushbuddy still the only gassifier of it's type with a totally enclosed chamber? I could easily be wrong on that.

    Well well well, I do have those, and never put them together. (That I can recall)

    Well, the first I reckon. Clones about.

    The ‘grate’ on which the fuel sits is of too coarse a mesh to prevent wood pellets falling through so I cut a disc out of finer stainless steel mesh to insert over the built-in grate. Works well.

    I couldn't wait so weighed the Lixada with the Zebra, 1.27Kg.

    As I don't currently have noodles in stock I suppose I'll have to add some to tomorrows shopping list. I've not used the Lixada since Newark and since the wood I have is still handy it would be a shame not to give it a run.

    Noodles.
    When I'm in firewood mode cutting large rounds, I've been knee deep in noodles. I've let them air dry and scooped into leaf and lawn bags to save as fire started. I hate saw cleanup after cutting sappy soft wood but Yellow Pine noodles sure do make great started. Hardly a stick of firewood this year. Life overload. I have helped with some cleanup at Scout Camps and wood for campfires. Nothing like a good campfire for the soul.

    Just for the record, the Snow Peak pot and Bushbuddy Ultra together add up to 300g. (11 ounces).

    A striking comparison if you want to carry a gassifier on a trip. A 1/4 of the weight.

    I was digging around in the shop/shed the other day and found both. And they fit nicely.

    I did today. A very nice combination. I need to bring the Solo brand windscreen next time.
