Longer flame path means better turbulence, therefore better mixing and more efficiency.

It's not bullshit but that doesn't mean it will suit your needs. It's basically a portable Dakota fire pit (which I've used on several trips).

I've also built and used "Bush Buddy" type woodgas stoves and they work fine.

This is the stove I prefer when there isn't wood around or it's really wet:



I can get 2 cups of water to boil in 5 minutes with 1/2 ounce of 50/50 HEET (methanol) and 90% Isopropyl alcohol.

Re: Is the rocket stove thing a bunch a horseshit?
Many early combustion engines were basically a variant of rocketstove design. Also Jotul wood stoves have been using the basic premise for over 100 years.

The idea is sound... application and design are quite varied.

Your most important question is, "What do you wish to accomplish?"

Re: Is the rocket stove thing a bunch a horseshit?
They are 100% legit. I bought a stainless steel one a few years ago. I can literally boil a five gallon pan of water with a few sticks I get in my back yard, In fact my dog loves chasing sticks so he brings them to me,

It's really only practical if you are camping and there is little wood to burn or of course in a SHTF scenerio.

Rocket stoves are legit. They are extremely efficient. Rocket mass heater a are far superior for heating spaces than traditional wood burning stoves.

Do the research and don't be a dumb ass.

Re: Is the rocket stove thing a bunch a horseshit?
Hmmm, what a lot of folks forget is that these kind of stoves are best suited for stealth and/or windy cooking and not for warmth. Remeber, you must use what is needed for the situation that you are in.

For me the "Rocket" stove is nothing but a "Dakota" stove built above the ground at home.

Re: Is the rocket stove thing a bunch a horseshit?
They work great!

I built a couple of them out of black stove pipe. (one 6 inch diameter, and one 8 inch).

They don't need to have that classic "L" shape.

I just cut a larger opening in the bottom of the pipe & 2 small vents in the top of it...thing works fantastic!

They conserve wood and contain the fire.

It would take ALOT more wood to cook over a camp fire!

Re: Is the rocket stove thing a bunch a horseshit?
I've used a CAT stove for years, with HEET as a fuel... for a minimalist camping thing.

Then I made a rocket stove out of a 1 qt. can... and I think the inner can was of the Chunky Soup variety.

Either way, the rocket stove totally kicks ass. Sure, it's a little bigger then the CAT stove, but I don't have to carry fuel. And I can always find a handful of to burn. And that's all it takes. And I've played with a few different types of these too. Got a whole box of ones I made out of beer cans. They all work... just not as good as this one... for my needs:



Now I just need to start going camping again... lol

Rocket stoves are awesome. We were skeptical at first, but we built one at our cabin in the mountains. It keeps 2000sf very toasty...
