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.

@neauoire@merveilles.town 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.

@im I own (recntly) and use (not in town) this ➡️ bushcraft-essentials.com/en/ou

That's really impressive how it works well, with just a few wood...

@peregrine @neauoire

@im @neauoire I always assumed the instant pots lower energy use comes from the lowering of the boiling point but in hindsight it seems its much higher insulation is probably more important.

@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.
