Rocket Stove - Build Your Own

We had a great time last weekend, BBQing chicken, burgers, potatoes, and roasting marshmellows.  We stayed up late and looked for meteors.  It was wonderful.

But we noticed that we went through ALOT of wood.  We recognize that our open fire pit is not the most efficient in design.  It is OK for BBQing and nice to sit near for some added heat.

But sometimes efficiency is key.  We need a way to heat food (and ourselves perhaps) quickly with as little fuel as possible.

And that is where a rocket stove shines.  It's compact, closed shell, with the necessary venting provides a big punch in a little package.

I will start building one today!
