DIY Rocket Stove to Cook Food or Heat Small Spaces

A rocket stove is a type of combustion stove that is highly efficient and can burn most any organic material as well as many man made ones.  It has many applications for both indoor and outdoor usage. A DIY rocket stove can be fashioned into a homemade wood burning stove or an outdoor cooking surface for use in your backyard or on the camping trail.

A DIY rocket stove is much better than a traditional fire or wood stove. One of the main reasons is the variety of fuel materials it can effectively burn. This ability to generate a large amount of heat with less smoke and ash, while using far less wood is why many people choose to build a DIY rocket stove. It incorporates a feeding tube to add fuel (sticks, etc), an air intake, and a chimney to direct the heat that is produced.  Here is a list of some of the most commonly used items:

  • Wood
  • Paper
  • Biomass briquettes
  • Cardboard
  • Cloth
  • Manure
  • Moss
  • Charcoal

It is very easy to build one. Check out the video below for the instructions.
