Hello Everybody,

I just uploaded my first Rocket Stove Heater video on youtube.

Me (13) and my brother (15) built this Rocket Stove Heater. I have been trying and designing for several months now, and this one finally works perfect!

I hope you like it, reviews are appreciated.

Congratulations to the both of you!, And Welcome to PERMIES ! and also to thr Permies 'Rocket Stove' Forum/Threads !

Your Rocket Stove wil come up to temperature faster and burn cleaner and longer if you insulate the 'Heat Riser"!
The stovepipe inside the barrel! I'm glad you decided to share your build !

For the good of the Craft! Be safe, keep warm! PYRO-LOGICALLY Big AL As always,all comments are welcome ! A.L.

Welcome to permies, guys.
Your stove do work, yes, but there are some niggles in it.
You should use insulation material around the combustion chamber and the riser. Earth isn't good enough, better to source some vermiculite or better still, perlite. A building materials outlet probably will sell that stuff. The mild steel stove pipe inside the riser won't last long when the stove is running properly, a stainless steel duct will function longer. The same cross section area throughout the stove is another important point.
Still a very nice job, cleaver arrangement of fire bricks and sidewalk pavers.

By any chance, are you located in the Netherlands?
