Rocket Stove in a Earth Oven?  RSS feed

Here, at the Art of Sustainable Living Center, in Siletz Oregon, next summer we plan to build Earth Ovens, Rocket Stoves, and Mass Rocket Stoves. We have studied Kiko Denzer’s fine book on Earth Ovens. We have seen Ernie Wisner excellent video on double chamber ovens. His video is how we heard about permies.com.

Since we are new to the forum, our question may have already been answered, but what is the problem of building a rocket stove 30 inches under an earth oven to preheat an earth oven? It should use less fuel, shorten the heat up time and make less smoke. Opinions?

Don't know if my first post went through or not, but here it is again.

Here is a site that may be of help.


There is a video explaining their project. Looks very interesting.

Also, there is another YouTube posting using Jon and Flips method. It's called "Permaculture Our Urban Design part 7", on YouTube.

Why not just build the oven on the rocket stove barrel? same difference.
This is why I dont; I like a bit of smoke to my food when i am baking in an earthen oven and I dont think its very hard to pull coals out before I bake. We built a rocket oven and i didnt like it much nor did i like the flavor of the baked goods. Try it and see ive never seen anyone make a rocket 30 inches below the oven so i cant say if it will work or not. seems that 30 inches is a rather large gap.
