Had a friend stop by the other day. “Hey could I see your rocket stove?” he asked. I was a little surprised, but I was happy to show him. After setting it up and getting a small fire going. He began to look over the rocket stove and putting his hand on the stove.

This is what he said about the stove:
“I saw than on the discovery channel” he said. I have not watched any discovery TV for a long time. If you know what program talked about rocket stoves or other rocket things please post below. Thanks
“Unreal”
“Wow”
“A few sticks of wood to cook lunch”
After talking about the book "The Rocket Mass Heater builders Guide by Ernie and Erica Wisner"  https://permies.com/wiki/57365/Rocket-Mass-Heater-Builder-Guide. And after showing him the great pictures in the book he wanted to build one.

In the end it was a fun and surprising day for me. Just wanted to share this story with everyone at permies.

You go around planting seeds. Some will take, where you least expect it. You just never know!

That's a great story. Getting others hooked by directly showing them is worth more than a thousand words could ever describe the same thing.

Do you have a link or episode number to that Discovery channel program?
