Hey all,
Time for a new project. I used left over firebrick from my indoor batch rocket heater to build a 4" core.
I was thinking I could build a nice little efficient outdoor stove or oven for cooking soups, stews, stocks etc rather than leaving the induction cooktop on for many hours.

Any suggestions on designs that are tried and succesful?

I have a lot of clay bricks also so I thought about adding the exterior of the core in them, leaving a gap and filling it with perlite to insulate. Then building the brick up into some sort of small oven that fits a large pot or a cooktop...

Hi Benan;  That sound like a fine idea!  
Sounds like you have all the parts on hand to give it a go!
Please take plenty of photo's as you build and let us see what your creating.

Definitely will do. Here's the core. Have plenty of blanket to make a 5 minute riser.

Any chance you could share the plans? We just had a tornado take out a transformer in our town. Looks like it’s going to be a long week without power. For now we are surviving on the camping stove, but I don’t know if we will have a continuous supply of propane.

Hi Tatyana;
A basic rocket stove is easy to make.
If you have brick available, you can build a simple L tube or a J tube.

With an L tube your fuel lays horizontal  and you would push it back towards the chimney as it burns.
A J tube has its wood standing vertically and gravity feeds it .
Both would have a 10" long tunnel to the riser(chimney)

With both styles you want to have a 6" square hole , tunnel and chimney.

If this isn't clear then ask any questions you like.
