    Very informative and videography was good. Going to Home Depot tomorrow and buying a couple dozen fire bricks to give your plan a try. Thanks.

    Well, that was brilliant. I have had a countryside way of life and would be able to survive should the worse happen but with all of my cooking methods what I have just seen is by far the best. I am from the UK so in rural areas, fuel is not really an issue but cooking as efficiently as you did with such a small amount of fuel has to be the best by far... Thank you for the wonderful video.

    Thanks a lot for showing the whole process of lighting and tending the fire. I made myself a brick rocket stove this summer, but haven't quite got the knack of keeping it going long enough to boil water. That's my mission before winter. Now I think I have the idea.

    Hope you folks are still looking at the commits for this video, because it is the best description of small rocket stove I have found. I could have really used this info a few days ago when pacific gas and electric had everyone's electricity cut off for four days. I finally sourced some propane (of course I was out) and made a hot meal. Amazing how much better you fill with a little hot food in you. Anyway, keep on prepping for the worst, and praying for the best. Peace.

    You could even make your rocket stove out of mud. It's free, but takes much more time to construct, for time where you have time and don't want to spend money.
    Use clay to make bars to form a grill in the fire box. make knobs at the top for your pot to sit on. If you're worried about burning you can also cook in a clay pot, like a bean pot.Clay doesn't transfer heat as well, so burning happens much more slowly, but it will take a bit longer to cook.
