Hello all,
I,m new to permies and very exited about what I have learned about rocket stove tech.
I am thinking of building a cob oven powered by a rocket burn chamber and riser.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I purchased some used fire brick for about $1 each and intend to experiment a bit. I had an idea about the cob oven construction. Has anyone ever tried to use a candle to promote drying the oven slowly while reducing cracking?

Thank you
Dom

Hi Domenick, I haven't used a candle in these circumstances, but I *have* stacked rocks and blocks around a TLUD and then used those (when really hot) as portable thermal masses for a variety of purposes - handling with thick gloves of course. Good luck with your project!
