    This month is a pretty open theme - any liquid fuelled stove - meths/alcohol, paraffin/kerosene petrol/white gas. No gas canisters!

    Post your nomination as a reply to this post.

    The rules.
    • Stove must feature in the Stove Reference Gallery (SRG) with a link posted in the entry. So now's the time to get those stoves photographed & posted! If it's been listed for years already that is ok too.
    • Maximum of 2 pictures in the entry. One must show the stove working. More pictures can of course be shown in the linked SRG entry - as many as you want!
    • Stove must be presently owned by the member.
    • One entry per member.
    This nominations post will be open for the month of March. At the end of the month the post will be closed & the qualifying stoves placed in a blind poll for members to vote for. The poll will remain open for 1 week. Most votes is the winner.

    The winner will get a SofM Winner notation on their posts & profile & a £10 voucher code from The Fettlebox

    If this takes off & is repeated sufficient times throughout the year all winners will be entered into a Stove of the Year poll in January 2020. The winner will get a SotY notation on their posts.

    Good luck & have fun!

    Wow, John!

    You have posted one of my favourite stoves ever seen on CCS.
    I was even involved in unearthing the history of the 'Lawson' company.
    You also have cooked food on it for me at Newark!

    Of course, I hope that many other wonderful stoves are posted.
    I am unashamedly open to bribery and blackmail!

    After seeing that Lawson @presscall, I don't think I will bother entering this month. Well, maybe.....

    So little time, so little choice. :) Might have cleaned the tablet lens by the end of the month if I'm lucky. :(

    Well, I'll throw my hat in the ring this month with the Lazarus stove - a Primus 54 in a French blue enameled cast frame, severely damaged getting here from Europe and figured for little more than scrap metal, and rebuilt by myself and a friend, brought back from the dead!

    Here it is, restored to its former self and full glory, like it was in 1930!

    Put the pot on for a brew, back to work!

    The full story!

    Murph, you have not disappointed!
    I love the French enameled cast iron.
    Your stove also has a wonderful history of restoration, conservation and utilisation.
    Well done!

    I thought I would make a pitch for the lowly alcohol burner.

    Here is my Turm 144 posted here. Photographed today on coffee duty; no fuss, no noise, no drama!

    Lovely stove. I love the Shinabro 340s. They were very popular with scout groups in the day.

    The only minor problem I have had is that the funnels and spirit bottle tops undergo a gender transformation, in that they turn from blue to pink as they get exposed to meths, paraffin and sunlight.

    After seeing the worthy entries so far, I've decided not to spoil things with my sure fire winner. Maybe another time.
