The Bushbuddy Stove is a double-walled stove meaning that it has another wall that surrounds the main burning chamber. This allows for secondary combustion air to be possible, providing a fire that is as clean as a candle and free of smoke. The exhaust gases that naturally emit from burnt wood is allowed to mix with preheated air (by the radiant heat of the combustion chamber) coming in from the intake holes of the outer shell. This mixture of gases is able to be burnt by the fire in addition to the wood in the firebox. The double-wall design also works as a “damper” to limit the amount of oxygen fed to the fire and allows for a more efficient burn that consumes fuel slowly. The improved burn of the double-wall design, allows the stove to use less wood than regular wood stoves.
The Bushbuddy Stove is heat shielded meaning that the radiant heat from the firebox is shielded from the ground, preventing scorches. The heat shield is built between the ash pan and the bottom of the stove so that it insulates the ground from the heat during cooking. The stove still becomes too hot to hold comfortably although it is not so hot that it would burn the ground.
