Not that specific stove, but wood stoves in general...

It seems like a good idea since you only need to carry a stove, fuel comes from all over. But in practice you often end up carrying some dry fuel in case it is wet, and they require more work to get going and maintain through the cook. In the end I've found that alcohol is more reliable and convenient, and I use wood burning to supplement and extend my fuel.

That said it looks like it would work if that is what you want. You might be able to make an alcohol stove to work with the system, or carry some fuel tabs for back-up.
