A rocket stove is an efficient and hot burning stove using small-diameter wood fuel. Fuel is burned in a simple combustion chamber containing an insulated vertical chimney, which ensures almost complete combustion prior to the flames reaching the cooking surface.
@email@example.com extremely good if fuel is scarce or for long term use as even a makeshift one can be sturdy enough to hold a pot on its own. imo there's no better for through-hiking in my biome.
@neauoire my partner and I built a simple brick rocket-like stove recently, it works well but is super inefficient, I'm looking for ideas for our next one. But it worked well enough to cook a big pot of nabe :)
@tomisme Nice! I've seen some really nice designs that are made from concrete, could be a nice next step.
@neauoire this is what I was saying! They make light portable versions but yea diy works too. I don’t know how safe it would be on a boat but if you don’t do the deep water thing you will always have wood/sticks you could scavenge.
@peregrine @neauoire Your conversation reminds me of this article, that you may already know: https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/2014/06/thermal-efficiency-cooking-stoves.html
@im I own (recntly) and use (not in town) this ➡️ https://www.bushcraft-essentials.com/en/outdoor-stoves/39/bushbox-lf?c=14
That's really impressive how it works well, with just a few wood...
@im @neauoire nice I did not know about “fireless cookers” https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com/2014/07/cooking-pot-insulation-key-to-sustainable-cooking.html but in hindsight it’s obvious.
@neauoire Yeah, my new place has an electric stove and I am leaning towards my instapot because it's the most energy efficient option I have.
