    Cooking on a log.

    Cut the log evenly on both sides so it stands up freely. Then cut it into vertical segments most of the way down the length of the log. Stuff in some newspaper into the cracks as deep as you can get it, leaving a wick at the bottom, and light it up.

    That's all there is to it—the log burns from the inside out, and you have a simple, handmade stove

    Looked pretty cool to me but then I got to thinking...what if you had a an old dutch oven on top slow cooking a pot of chili and the base weakened and collapsed? That would be a very unhappy ending

    you could always hang the cooking pot from above, the hanger would support the weight.

    OR

    you could weld a ring or expanded metal grate to legs that would support it over the fire log/swedish torch.

    then the chili would be as good as your ingredients and the recipe intended.
