A Review of the SilverFire Hunter TLUD Biomass Stove


Confession: I'm in love with a TLUD biomass cookstove.

I picked up a SilverFire Hunter stove over a year ago. Since then I've used it to cook meals, scald chickens and entertain my children.

I've been meaning to write a Silverfire Hunter review ever since I bought the thing. Then I thought: why not have Jeff record a video review instead? So we did, and made it episode 5 of Crash Gardening season 2:


The SilverFire TLUD is rather expensive but it's a marvel of engineering.

You can load it with a small amount of wood and cook an excellent meal without feeding in any additional sticks. We're talking 8 pinecones or so. This thing is a monster at converting biomass into heat. Incredibly efficient. I like my StoveTec, but this - though a bit more complicated and unwieldy thanks to the chimney - is remarkable.

Looks good! Any idea what it's life expectancy is?

I'd bet you'd get at least a few years out of it if you cooked on it every day. I think the joint to the chimney would go first, assuming it got kicked over or something.
