Would someone explain the pocket rocket stoves to me? Google seems to mostly show MSR brand pocket rocket camp stoves. There is a DIY version, yes? Does it work like a rocket mass heater, but without the mass?

The pocket rockets don't have the mass and they also don't have the insulated riser/reburn chamber. Due to this they're kinda like a traditional wood stove except that you can use small pieces of wood like a RMH in a vertical feed chamber and that they burn very hot.

Sort of

its like the j part of the RMH. they burn very hot and a bit dirty but not as bad as most. its a simple construction that we usually teach folks for emergency situations. Street kids, homeless, folks who travel in winter, etc. its a handy thing to have when you need heat fast or as simply as possible. from experience you can also cook a three course dinner for twenty on one (not easy but it can be done)

I don't have any personal pics but there's plenty to be found on the internet.
