So this incredible stove....that I would love to learn more about seems to use quite a bit of stove pipe - where are good sources of this? I have looked for stove pipe for my woodstove that I need to get set up before winter and it is extremely expensive. The rocket stove is toted as being economical, but this one item seems to throw it off...(hundreds of $). It seems to be the hardest to get reclaimed...does it need to be stainless steel?

Rocket Mass Heaters are cheaper than Masonry Heaters in almost any configuration, and provide much the same quality of heat. The barrel is slightly less durable than your average masonry heater components, but it also provides something they do not: immediate comfort from quick radiant heat.
