I know people have tried adding a Rocket to a wood stove with some success. Now what about building a small stove box into the rocket .
So lets say a small stove like box maybe ( 12" x 10" ) with a door/window . The door could be vented and the top could also have a opening that could be opened or closed for the rocket effect .

So then you have a rocket stove that you can enjoy like a stove .

John Moran : What you are proposing is a unit that loads all of the wood on a horizontal plane, usually referred to as "Batch loading', geting the Air flow and critical mixing right
is being extensively researched, often individual 'runs' of this class of Rocket Mass Heaters R.M.H.s meets the high efficiencies usually seen with the J-tube vertical load models.

Much more information can be found at 'Donkeys site', do a search using the toolbox at the top of this page !

Irregardless, I would not want any one to attempt a First Build with anything other than a more conventional J-Tube vertical R.M.H. . With over 100.000 R.M.H.s built word wide
most of them have been built (and 95% of all the 1st builds that Worked), using Ianto Evans Book "Rocket Mass Heaters" available for $15.oo as a PDF Copy from
