After building many cob  rocket stoves, we were still having the same problem.  The cob in the back would not take the abuse of having sticks jammed into it and we couldn't seem to be more gentle.
So I made a -sort of- base out of firebrick and built around it with cob.  I built two of them side by side and they are fantastic.

Then I made my boyfriend a T-shirt to wear while he cooked for me.  I included a link in case you need one for your rocket chef!

I did not know that one can use glass bottles in a cob rocket stove. Cool idea.

The glass bottles are just part of the base for the rocket stove.  I hope to build a cob oven nearby on the same base, and so I did the bottles for the whole thing.
