He cuts the log a special way to make the perfect cook fire

Outdoorsman and survival expert Bob Hansler shows how to build an impressive Swedish jet stove from a single log. He uses a chainsaw to speed things up for the camera, but you could easily do the same thing with a cross saw and a little elbow grease. The fire is strong and even across a level surface that’s perfect for almost any flat bottomed piece of cookware. From coffee to stew, this is the best cook fire you’re going to find at camp.
