Volcano Collapsible Stove with a Dutch Oven



Recently I cooked a chicken and vegetable stew using my Volcano Collapsible Grill/Stove, a 10-inch Dutch Oven, and briquettes. While cooking I made the Volcano into an oven by using the optional accessory Volcano "Lid.”

The Volcano’s adjustable vents allow for controlling the fuel burn rate, and therefore the temperature. Normally when cooking with a 10” Dutch Oven you would use 20 briquettes. However with the Volcano you will use significantly less briquettes. In the attached video I used 14 of them, and it turned out that this was still too many. (I probably could have used half that amount.)

One of the other nice things about the Collapsible Stove is that you can cook with briquettes at two different levels. In this video you will see how I chose to cook at the higher level, but it really is up to the user’s decision as both ways work just fine.

When using the Volcano you have the option of using wood, charcoal briquettes, or propane; here I opted to use briquettes. However, I often enjoy cooking my breakfast on our Volcano Collapsible Stove (sometimes referred to as the "Volcano II Grill”) while using a cast-iron skillet and propane.

In the attached video you will notice that I have the Volcano sitting on a tablecloth. The Volcano has an internal heat chamber where the heat is contained. This allows the outside of the stove to stay relatively cool to the touch and to the table underneath.
