If you have never used a rocket stove it is difficult to believe how little fuel can be used to effectively cook your food. A rocket stove will not be a replacement for your indoor cast iron stove, but it is a great supplement for when your fuel is getting low, days are getting warmer and you don’t want your house 100 degrees to cook some food, or you just need an extra burner. One of the best things about a rocket stove is how easy and cheap it is to make one yourself. Here is a video that shows how to make a rocket stove from empty tin cans of various sizes. The exact materials are not important so long as the basic design is followed. It’s is doubtful that you will not find a use for a rocket stove on your homestead.
