For a while now my wife has wanted to try some new methods of outdoor cooking. So yesterday, I built her a 16 brick rocket stove. It is simple and easy to build. The stove was quite efficient and able to bring water to a boil quickly while consuming a small amount of wood. The stove works quite well on twigs and small scraps of wood you would normally ignore if you were building a campfire.
With dry wood, the stove produced very little smoke and reminded me of a Dakota Hole. My wife is now going to do some cooking on it and we will publish the results in the near future.
Here is a video of me making and lighting the stove.
