    Ok - nice and easy theme. Open season - simply enter your best, favourite, most interesting, whatever 'camp stove'.

    We'll not rule out domestic ranges, boat stoves, etc - throw them into the mix too. Fuel - any. The only exclusion I'd like to impose is full-on kitchen 'cookers' not designed to be portable. Not clear? I'll shout up if I see one!

    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. The pictures must show the stove working & in it's entirety. 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 SotM Winner notation on their posts & profile & a £10 voucher code from The Fettlebox

    Good luck & have fun

    Obvious one for me, my Rustbucket project.

    Nothing out of the ordinary in itself as a kero-burning Optimus 111 ‘roarer’ (excellent stoves though they are) but my first project featured here on CCS, making me a lot of lasting friendships along the way.

    Still in my possession and a treasured one at that.

    I think you've probably guessed what my entry will be this month John. :)

    A trip to the camping section of the attic beckons.

    It certainly won't be an 8r that's a fact.

    Aluminum; metal of the future!

    I'd like one of those; very cool.

    Found "in the wild", none of the typical stress cracks (so far...) this model is prone to.

    I suppose it really should be a gassifier John, but went with the Epigas Alpine. :)

    This stove kept me fed and watered over a few thousand miles cycling so is very dear to my heart.

    Greetings, Gents and Ladies,

    One of my most favorite stoves is my beloved MSR #9! I've long raved about how wonderful it is, and I still feel that way about it.

    Here is the link to the Gallery post on this delightful, and powerful stove:

    1973 MSR #9, with original instructions!

    The #9 is, in my opinion, the Best of Breed, when it comes to the MSR X-GK family of stoves, even after all these years!! Thanks for checking it out, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Here is my Lanray No.8 Collapsible from the 1940's.

    Simple, reliable and perfect for carrying in the car.

    My first stove was a Globetrotter (not this one) so I'll always have a soft spot for them. I got a frosty reception here when I first suggested they are classic stoves.

    This was the unlit GT that I posted to SRG on 14 Aug. '08...

    After much thought I'm entering my Sievert 925 propane stove. It holds a ton of fuel, puts out a lot of heat on high, simmers well on low, and has a built in wind screen. On the downside it's heavy and it tends to roll around in the car during transport unless wedged in securely. The stove is 55 years old (1965) and the tank is out-of-date so I have to fill it myself. Commercial propane establishments won't touch it.

    @Ian points out that he had in the past gotten a 'frosty reception' here when suggesting his Globetrotter was a classic. The above photo from 1963 with our Scoutmasters and other dads on the trail shows that it is indeed a solid classic!

    [Incidentally, I found myself unable to paste this photo in, then, when editing, trying to copy in the quote from Ian's post. Just couldn't get it to work. So I paraphrased his post. What is the trick to that?]

    Thanks for the big smile @Duck.

    It would have got my vote.
