Last Updated On: September 21, 2021

Once while I and my cousins were at a campsite, heavy rain started, although the weather was a bit cloudy from the beginning. We just then prepare to make our breakfast tea. Suddenly one of my cousins gave us the idea of cooking inside our tent. 

As we started to set the stove inside we felt that there is a lack of ventilation in our tent and due to raining water coming from outside with heavy wind. We had to close the tent as well. I said, why not try a DIY tent stove jack now? Then we started making our own tent stove jack ourselves.
