I've wanted a kelly kettle for ages. This might be my excuse.
I went to school with Debbie Kettle
2 days sitting in a survival bag, eating flapjack and firing flares at passing aircraft. What's not to like. I'm out.
(I was offered a free weekend with that fat fucker off the telly, learning how to eat rabbit kidneys and moss in the new forest.. I told em to poke that too...)
I dont know what a Kelly Kettle is?
But the gist of the rule was no means of heating food / water as there would be wood etc. to make fire with.
Its hardly suvival if you have everything you need is it?
Kelly Kettle is a brand of storm kettle where you have a fire in a little container at the bottom then it has a double walled chimney that you fill with water, the heat from the sticks and so on you burn heat the inside wall of the double wall chimney and boils the water.
Another brand is the Storm Kettle and there's others I can't remember right now. Not got one but they are supposed to be good for boiling water (the name kettle kind of gives that away) and not as good at general camp cooking (the lack of being called camp stove might give that away also).
With some there's little stands you can put a pan on but I don't know how good they are.
From what I hear the stainless ones are better than the aluminium versions as they have all the seams welded instead of just rolled over and they don't go manky if you leave them wet inside like aluminium does.
I've got a kelly kettle and tried to find my images.
The outer ring or tube boils water in less than two-minutes, these same toroidal currents recombust smoke vapor in another design I recently was awakened too...
They act much like a rocket stove; the further concept of this design is the rocket mass stove heater. An extremely efficient design for wood fires & storing heat.
