How to Build a Rocket Stove?

building a rocket stove is not very easy but not tough too. You need some basis little understanding about stove intents. If you are going for camping or want to use stoves for your trip then you should always carry a best wood burning stove or a rocket stove. This is an incredibly efficient way to extract the maximum energy from limited fuel sources for stoves. In our final test before we wrote this, we made a large pot of whole oats boil for two hours only with a one-foot piece of a board that we plucked from the bed-side of a bed.


Five Steel Food Cans:
Two 400ml cans - the most common size of food cans
A 750ml can - less common type of can is proportionally higher than ordinary cans
Two cans of 3,78l (1 gallon) - you can get these in restaurants, especially in pizzerias
Annealed wire - found in hardware and building materials stores; is made to tie rebar into reinforced concrete reinforcement
Insulation - You can use cob, a mixture of clay, sand and straw, but ashes work best. If you do not have enough, you can add perlite or vermiculite, both are found in gardening stores as additives to the soil.
Can opener
Cutting Scissors
Drill with saw-cup (optional)
Permanent marker

Using the can opener, cut the top and bottom parts of your 400ml cans into tubes; cut the top of the 750ml can; cut the top of one of the gallon cans and the bottom of the other one gallon can. Store the removed part of one of the larger cans.

Remove the labels, glue and leftover food from all cans.

Hold the bottom of the 700ml can against the side of one of the gallon cans, about two inches and a half from the bottom. Trace the smaller can circumference on the side of the larger can so you know the size of the hole you will have to cut. Use your can-cut scissors to cut the hole into the one-gallon can. It is best to cut the slightly smaller hole the first time, and then gradually open more if necessary; the connection between the two cans must be fairly accurate.
