that is not a rocket stove and i will speak to Ray about it. i see the need to start pointing folks to the differences between just using the hot stack effect and an actual rocket stove.  if anything that stove uses the Tech developed as the
Lorana stoves.  Sigh!!! 

this is the maddening part of trying to get this stuff mainstream.

Yes, I did wonder where the heat riser section was.... but he runs through it fairly fast, so I thought I had just missed it.

This wouldn't be the first time terminology was hijacked. 
Seems Ray thinks sideways-fire is the definition of 'Rocket Stove'. 

Maybe a proper break down list of the parts of a rocket mass stove/heater to emphasizes the necessary parts would help to educate.

On a similar subject:
Ernie do you know of any on-line information on home-built Rumford Stoves?  They too have very specific 'parts' which make them unique in their own way.

Thanks,
