Nuway Propane Stove in an Arctic Oven
« on: December 23, 2017, 08:47:26 pm »
At anything -20C and warmer I find a wood stove in the Arctic Oven a bit too hot, followed by too cold.  Hard to create a long lasting fire that's just right in the small stove box that burns low enough for an insulated tent...so, I have gone to propane.  Have a 28,000 BTU NuWay that burns about 1 pound of fuel an hour when full out.  At -20 I get the Arktica up to +10 or so for 2-3 nights on one 20 pound bottle.  If it's warmer I can burn 1/2 a pound of fuel/hour for 4-5 nights.  The thing vents out of a chimney and creates some really steady heat.  It's like staying in a cabin.  When hunting or otherwise busy it allows less time on wood prep.  When it dips below -20 wood puts out way more BTU's but even then is no where as near steady as the Nu-Way.

Your Snowtrekker video was one of the ones I watched before getting my own!

The arctic Oven is one warm tent, but so heavy and  bulky we sold ours to get a snow trekker.
I have a few friends that uses theres(arctic ovens) above tree line as base camp in the white and Haines pass or on the Quest trail for Fat bike trip support camps and they use similar stove if I'm not mistaken!!

Yup it was a guy in my fitness group here in Whitehorse that put me on to the Nu-Way stove. He uses one in his AO.  The Arctic Oven is like bringing a Yurt.  The Snow-Trekker is 1/3 the weight.  However, nothing is as dry and cozy as the AO , the NU-Way allows for a constant heat that takes the sting out of winter camping.

Nu-Way also sells wood-burning stoves: relatively low heat output due to small size, very small purchase price, low weight (8.5 lbs in steel). A buddy has one of the 965 models that he used in his solo tent set-up.

Today for Christmas my wife got me a Kni-Co woodstove for below -20C use.  It should come in handy over the next month or two!  I'll let you know how it works in the AO.
