I have a very old Servel propane fridge with a burner that is not long for this world, so I want to try and see if I can rocketise it. I have seen a couple of experiments on youtube, but this is a full size deal. Any advice or words of wisdom in regards to converting to a rocket stove burner? The fridge is in OK condition and is on an Island in the middle of a lake ( with lots of wood) and there is only wood heat oil lights and no hydro. Is mini rocket stove power possible?
 
When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
A rocket mass heater heats your home with one tenth the wood of a conventional wood stove
