16 Brick Rocket Stove


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.

    Nice. Are these fire bricks or regular bricks?

    These were some paving bricks, the kind used for walk ways.

    In the first photo with the cookie sheet on the stove, I would recommend placing a spacer under your cooking utensil so that it will vent properly. I use a couple of pieces of rebar, but most anything can be used.
