  2. Fantastic use for such a rarely seen ( a one ground) piece of equipment.
    Please keep us all posted on it's performance, i.e. did it survive the temperatures from the fire. Quite the opposite from being buried underground.

  4. Not sure about taking it camping but it's pretty cool if it withstands heat and doesn't crack. I'd quite like to find one of these and add to my current couple of BBQs

    1. I find it works well because it needs so little fuel to make a lot of heat, the one I have is a really heavy terracotta find of material.

  5. What did you do for the chimney/flu as I can't see one ? Do you think this would lend itself to having a hole knocked in it or maybe one of those hole drilling yokes you can get, Be very smokey without a chimney, what are you using in it, a Tealight?

  8. Someone is asking what type of piece this rocket stove is made of . I don not know its name in english, but I am going to try to give an explanation of this type of piece. In Colombia is known as a T made of clay. It is used for water drainage. Due to its T shape, it is easy to join another pipe of clay to receive a watercourse that comes from another direction. So, this the type of piece that has been used for this rocket stove.

    1. this stove is for cooking not heating so no chimney is required as your pan sits on top

  9. Please think about Carbon Monoxide poisoning fumes which can kill before doing this ! Carbon monoxide is a colourless and odourless gas, making its presence difficult to detect. It is formed when domestic fuels such as gas, coal, wood and charcoal are burned and by petrol engines. When fuel burns in an enclosed room, the oxygen in the room is gradually used up and replaced with carbon dioxide. If carbon dioxide builds up in the air, the fuel is prevented from burning fully and starts releasing carbon monoxide instead.
    TAKE CARE AND BE SAFE

    1. this is for outside not inside so fumes etc are no issue. I have no idea why anyone would want to use this inside or what would make them think it was okay to do so. Are we really dumbing down that much

  10. It's called an I.O. - Inspection Opening. An Earthenware Plumbing fitting that is used for drainage, stormwater or sewer.
