I posted the below comment on another thread about a week go:

The prevailing advice is: don't use metal in the burn tube and riser. It will function for a while, but eventually corrode.

Admittedly, your video didn't show (or give any details on) the internal riser.

EDIT: This is the thread I referred to - https://permies.com/t/82837/rocket-stove-video-weld-easy

tnx for input. yes, have read this. but rockets are used for many different applications. seasonal use at a lake cabin will negate the need to make it out of masonry or ceramic.

primary heating 6 months out of year...i agree steel is not ideal.

I rewatched your video to see if I had missed this info. You briefly mentioned a cabin, but no mention of how heavily you were going to use it. I really recommend you include this sort of thing in your future videos, as I believe this is really important for beginners to understand.
