Few outdoor activities are as soothing and meditative as sitting around a camp fire. The light and warmth a good fire provides are somehow very familiar and bring with them a sense of calm and security. In particular, I enjoy cooking over a fire. The sizzle of a thick steak held over the soft glow of hot embers is of great comfort to me. However, sometimes the circumstances just arenít right for an open fire.

A couple of years ago, I began building and experimenting with the wide variety of DIY wood burning stoves found on the internet. While many of the stoves had some great features, none of them fully satisfied my needs. So, I set out to make a stove that was simple, robust, efficient, and above all, easy to use. Many cuts, burns, and disappointing attempts later, the EmberLit was born.
