Rocket Stove for Emergencies

A concrete block rocket stove is quick to construct during an emergency or to use for outdoor cooking in the fall when the temperature has cooled off.

Rocket stove are constructed simply by creating a path for heat to be directed to the bottom of a pan in order to heat food or purify water. The flue affect of a rocket stove is how this is accomplished. Due to heat from the fire rising, air is drawn in at the bottom of the rocket stove, pushing the heat out of the top and onto the bottom surface of your pan.

In the following YouTube video, I show you how to construct a quick rocket stove for use during emergencies or to use if you want to cook outside during the fall when it has cooled off.
