The construction is very similar to the Yukon Stoves used by the U.S. Army to heat tents. The openings in the bottom provided two functions, first to allow the moisture from the ground to be vaporized to allow a slow burn so as not to get too hot and not deplete your fuel too quickly and secondly to allow ash to drop out.
