Recently, I reviewed the Sidewinder Ti-Tri Caldera Cone and the BushBuddy Ultra. Today, I thought I'd do a quick comparison of the two.

Hi, Alan,

No, I haven't used a Little Bug nor a Vargo hex nor a 4 Dog Bush Cooker nor a Backcountry Boiler, nor...  

Sigh.  So many stoves, so little time.

Time to get cracking!  The little bugs and the 4 dog's are local so I have homer interest in these, but to date have not bought one.  Trangia's ruined stoves for me; just too damn good for three season use.

As an owner of a 3 cup Sidewinder/Inferno stove I can say all of Jim's "pros" for that stove are why I bought it.

Set-up and take-down time are no problem when I consider the versatility of the stove system. I've used it with just ESBIT and the tiny "Gram Cracker" fuel tab holder on the Colorado Trail. Works fine and saves fuel over my previous Vargo stove & MSR windscreen combo.

As mentioned in Jim's article, the Sidewinder has great efficiency in the wind, unlike most other wood stoves. And wind is usually present just when we want to cook!

For a bit more info see my review of the Sidewinder stove here on Trailspace.

 Aye, but time and money are quite constraining.  :)

I actually found that the stove worked slightly better in a breeze.  More oxygen.

 I am in touch with that.  I may but a little bug this summer.  If I pick one up I'll mail it to you for a demo.  I know the inventor's brother so I've always wanted to get one.

If you get one, I'd be very interested in reviewing it.  I have really enjoyed reviewing the BushBuddy and Ti-Tri Cone, both of which are excellent stoves.
