A couple years ago(pre-pandemic) I was on youtube learning about DNA and human migration and followed the links to Australia and came upon this old, 80's-90's, tv show hosted by a Jack Abasolm. Jack traveled the Outback and gave tips on places he grew up or worked at and did paintings. In one episode he pulled out his homemade twig cooker.
I needed that cooker. In my blog I have the whole story of how I made not 1 but 2 of them. I gave one away.; Outback cooker

Jack was awesome and love his TV shows, his stove is the fore runner of the rocket stove or bush kettle. I see there is a company that makes them a little similar to yours.

I went on to watch all the shows by Jack I could find, great stuff! Those Stickman stoves look interesting(and modern), kinda like a campfire in a can. I see Jack's stove more like a Kelley Kettle.

If you like Jack have a look for the bush tucker man.

Great find - not only the Twig Kettle but for the bit on Woomera (Bloodhound and Black Arrow!)
I have a Kelly kettle - goes everywhere with me
Going to watch the series for the survival hints!
