    Rocket Stove

I’m sure most people know about these, but I would share my experiences with rocket stoves in case somebody might have missed it. The advantages of a rocket stove are:

  • The are very efficient, so they use very little wood.
  • Can be powered by twigs and sticks.
  • Can be made very easily.
  • Provide a means to cook food in dire circumstances.

Last year when Hurricane Ike took at all of our utilities, I used the rocket stove to boil water for pasta, and to make the sauce. I bought mine off of ebay last year from the guy who made the youtube video below for just over $100. But if you have welding skills you could make a nice one very cheaply.
