BushBox XL Combination Kit
‘Military inspired hardware, uses natural fuels.’
The BushBox is a customisable, beautiful piece of engineering. Also known as a hobo stove or firebox, the BushBox XL Combination Kit is designed to fold away to under 1 cm in thickness. It assembles with strong, non-stick hinges, and can house either a fuel burner, or other natural fuel sources such as leaves and wood. Space for pans on the top, with the option of a grill plate for cooking meat BBQ style, the BushBox isn’t the cheapest, but it sure is one of the most fun.
Weight and portability
The BushBox XL Combination Kit weighs in at just over 800g, so it’s not the lightest, but it’s made from solid materials, which mean your food is in safe hands on top of it. For its size it is ultra portable, folding down to thinner than 1 cm, inside its own special carrying case.
Measures 12 x 19 cm.
The BushBox is made from 100% stainless steel, so it’s about as hardy as they come. It comes in a durable carry case, too, so you can slot it into your backpack.
The holed grill plate is so, so good for cooking food directly over the fire. Simply slot it into place and away you go. Comes with supports to rest frying pans on, and because the BushBox houses whatever fuel you’ve got, it’s also great for providing general heat during cold weather camping.
Why we love it
Cooking food on the grill plate directly over the fire is awesome, and the way the BushBox XL Combination Kit packs down so thinly makes it super portable.
