Uncle Mud and Three Small Rocket Heaters

The Mud Family got a special treat at the 2020 Texas Mother Earth News Fair where we got to unbox our second Bulgarian Gamera Rocket Heater, the "Tiny" and fire it up with two of its tinyhouse cousins, the camp version of the Liberator from rocketheater.com (tell them Uncle Mud sent you) and our own versatile DIY CottageRocket.

Obviously each of these heaters has limitations but the one that is arguably the weakest in performance also has the one important thing going for it that lets it lap the competition (including my CottageRocket and the best home made rocket) in that it is actually available to the masses as a UL Listed, Insurance and code approved wood stove anyone can install (with or without a mass bench). That is why I show these to people. A thousand people replacing a crap woodstove with one of these will do more good in the grand scheme of things than a couple of us hiding in the countryside comfy on our perfect cob rocket benches.

Thank you for all you do.
