A rocket stove is a hell of a concept...they work great.

I suggest practicing making them...like I said...you can damn near make them out of anything.

Re: Rocket Stove. Will come in handy in the days ahead.
Rocket stove is a great idea, but one made from cinder blocks will only last for a few fires. The heat cycles will cause them to crumble. You will need proper fire bricks for one to last very long.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 80897957


Ive seen them last longer then that. In the 80s, most houses here had a back yard incinerator for your garden wste made out of them.

You can also make them out of hebel blocks that are much more fireproof.

That's back when most 8in was made of a cinder mix...hence cinderblocks.

Nowadays most 8in block are made of concrete...and a light mix at that....usually haydite...which will make them even more brittle.

Once you learn a the concept of a rocket stove...ya can make them any where at of anything...I can make a rocket stove in the ground in about 5 minutes.

They must be still be made the old way here in Australia cause mine is about 4 years old, has had probably 50 uses and has yet to crumble.

Yea, Ive got a welded square tube one we take camping.
Its strong, cooks anything with a few twigs and is bomb proof.

Im a firm believer in having multiple options and the cinder block one, even though not the best option, is still very viable.

Honestly i don't know about Australia.

I've been making them for about 15yrs now...learned off youtube. When I first started getting into survival.

I make them in the back yard to cook...or just fuckin around...make them when I go camping...in the ground usually..sometimes use coffee cans and soup cans..bricks or blocks..an old hollow log like the swede said...damn near anything.
It is a good knowledge to have.

Look into fire eggs as well...there nice to have on a windy wet day.

Another thing is ...research the wild edible plants in your local..I'm a hillbillie..so I had a head start on that.

Once you learn them...you don't have to lug around anything...maybe a knife or a small utility shovel...lighter or matches and some fire eggs.

You can make them in a river bank...a hill...or hell straight into flat ground even...just got to do a little digging.
Those fire eggs are a must have...they can get wet and still light within seconds...there basically water proof...and they'll catch wet wood on fire...and burn in a 40 mile an hour wind.

Re: Rocket Stove. Will come in handy in the days ahead.
this is actually pretty useless beyond cooking. you need plans to make an indoor rocket stove from tin cans for heat when shtf.

basically a rocket stove but it needs to vent outside, anyone that can heat efficiently wil have a better chance, collecting firewood, especially in some areas will be very difficult and dangerous.

smoke will give you away.

A fire egg is just drier lint stuffed into the bottom of an egg carton with melted wax poured over it.
Preferably a cardboard egg container...but plastic or styrofoam will work.
Let them dry and harden...pop them out.
I like the cardboard containers..cause you can use the whole damn thing...just break them apart.
Once you start making them and using them...you'll never need lighter fluid again.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 80897957


If you don’t protect the firebricks from moisture and rain, they will melt away.

I made a rocket stove using this couple’s method, using concrete bricks. Out in all weather, numerous fires, never crumbled because the mass of concrete bricks in this design is much greater than that of concrete blocks, so the heat transfer is different.

Much better design than using concrete blocks:
