Uncle Mud Liberator Rocket Mass Heater Review

So we've been burning this heater for about four years now but finally got around to hooking it up to a thermal mass and giving it a good firing and a review. Sky Huddleston has done a good job balancing the needs of mass production with the fine tuning that lets rocket heaters burn so clean. You COULD build your own rocket heater out of mud and scrap metal and it MIGHT work as well but it would probably not be code approved as a woodstove and UL Listed in the United States like this one or give you the choice to burn pellets or wood scraps. This is a really good heater for the money. Check them out at rocketheater.com and they will give you $100 off if you tell them Uncle Mud sent you.

There's a special moment when we get to fire up a heater and see how it runs.

That’s a nicely made stove. Have you tried it with outside air supply hooked up? I wonder how much overall efficiency is gained with outside air hooked up? Does outside air work ok when burning pellets? Does the pellet hopper come with it?
Thanks
