Rocket Stove: Make One and Cook with Twigs — 8 Comments

  1. Seems to me that people sometimes use cooking oil, rubbed lightly on the outside of the cooking pot before cooking. I have a pot I just use in this way and let it get messy, but that isn’t a great solution when it’s time to wash the dishes!

  2. Hi, Wonderful site ! Thanks for all this information. I have recently built several rocket stoves… they are wonderful as you say cooking with twigs ! It brings such joy. I am having a bit of a problem with black soot (smoke) that covers the base of the cooking pot, have you had this problem? Do you know of a way to reduce this black soot.

  3. Good point, Steve! Hmm, not sure how to deal with it otherwise, will keep my eyes out.

  4. Great instructions. Thank you.
    But: “burn off the paint” just doesn’t sound green.
    Otherwise yours is the best instruction I’ve seen yet.

  5. the other comments say that you do not need it insulating but without insulation the burning chamber would not get hot enough to burn the wood gas and would smoke as it burns

  6. I have used 5mm metal tubing to do this stove. does not need any insulation. I have bit of welding skills so it was easy. modified the stove to have have two feeders. the second act is primary air feeder and also can place some wood in it. it is welded at 45 degrees so the wood slides in itself. cheers.

  7. DON’T NEED THE ASHES AS AIR IS ONE OF THE BEST INSULATORS ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET

    I WOULD SEAL THE BOTTOM WITH J.B.WELD AND SEAL THE TOP ALSO AFTER PUTTING SMALL SCREWS INTO WALL TO HOLD IT TEMPORAILY.
