    Default Smoke out in the disposable Tee Pee . Problem solved

    Built the teepee as described in postmans thread as found by gumbi . 20 X 10 foot tarp formed into a 20 foot diameter semi circle with 10 foot radius .
    Measure 6 equal segments along the circumferance and attach tie downs . Cut out smoke flaps and attach at top . Find six dead Ash saplings . Make a tripod and then just lean the others on .

    This supposedly makes a 10 diameter teepee but with sagging etc its a bit less . So I added the left over plastic to the bottom as a skirt .

    Find two more saplings to attach smoke flaps to . Adjust smoke flaps to form venturi .





    Found the interior to be too smoky for me even tho flaps are drawing well it seems fire will have to be split wood and burnt hot .

    Remembered a couple of years ago I was boiling maple sap down on top of a Dakota fire pit and in order to intensify the heat a bit I formed a tube of aluminum around the pot . Even tho aluminum has a relatively low melting point it does not get that hot in this application .

    So with the tube slightly tapered it forms a sort of hobo stove that carries the smoke right to the vent hole and smoke flaps .



    This weekend I think Ill carry this to our Bloodroot campout for a retreat from the cold if necessary .

    Ill probabley build a bit of a dirt stove with banks around the sides and the tube on top .

    I wonder if ducting in combustion air would be advantage in a teepee ?
    Its done in other type of shelters, contrived of rolled birchbark "pipes" or a covered trench leading to the outside.
    Im sure it would help . I remember somebody posting about a dakota fire pit in the center of his teepee . He said he used two trenches one in one out . Thats a lot of digging in frozen dirt however .

    you need an inner wall running from the floor to about four feet high...then hike up the outer wall a few inches to create a draft...thats how its done on genuine tp's...woods

    Ahah that makes sense . You would create a draft with that arangement with or without a fire .
    Well for now its the aluminum tube cause this teepee is staying at the campsight buried in a bag for the spring get together I think . Its as fancy as it's going to get .

    I would like to create a light weight canvas one tho so Ill use that method on that one .

    Thanks woods

    Ditto on this I have a traditional western plains tipi and it has an interior Linning that creates a draft
    This is my tipi

    Here you can see the liner with the fire going

    I set the tipi about 6 inches off the ground because the liner is about 4 ft up the sides and 3-4 ft on the floor

    You might try a DIY Sibley stove. I found pictures on Google and it is a cone of sheet metal that tapers to the size .of your stove pipe. This would put out a lot of heat and end the smoking. It would also be light to haul in. The tipi poles connect to an iron ring at the top so the pipe can exit. There is no bottom in the stove, so you build your fire right on the ground. If the door were cut at ground level, you could get coals out for cooking, and the draft would pull the smoke up the stack.

    In the 1860s the army used these stoves in the large, cone-shaped Sibley tents that would shelter 12 men.

    I wanted a Sibley tent with a stove like this, but I built my Adirondack shelter for less money than the tent cost!
