For a few days each June, my family takes up residence in a tented cabin at Yosemite's Tuolumne Meadows. In a throwback to simpler times, the canvas tented cabins are heated by small wood-burning stoves, which invariably makes me dream about bringing one back to my own cabin, tent, or backyard gathering.
Designed for outdoor campsite cooking, the Frontier Camping Stove also heats small cabins and tents. Classically styled, it packs down neatly after use and can be easily carried by hand. For now it's only available in the UK; anyone out there have any ideas for similar US-made camp stoves?
