Some of the scouts wanted to make one.  It's a car camping toy IMO, but the parents are going to go old school for AM coffee with this and a percolator on campouts.

How big is the lower vent/cleanout?  Nice work.

N/M, I see it now.  Very nice, I’m going to build one and leave it stashed at elk camp.


It’s the little things that make camp a home.

The metal mesh I had was kind of thin, so I tacked two pieces together just above the back lower vent inside the vertical tube.  It was pretty easy to make with the scraps I had in my shop.

I’ll probably do a direct copy of yours, maybe a bit bigger foot on it.

4"x4" tubing instead of 2"x2" would be cool for actual cooking, and I'll probably do one that size eventually.  This was all scrap I had in my shop.

My local distributor has some 10"x12"x.375" cutoffs... I always imagine making a huge rocket stove out of them.  I'd just need a forklift to move it around.

Rocket stoves are neat. It was too hard to pass up this one from Amazon for $35/shipped. A handful of us in the Amazon deals thread grabbed one, consider for the cost of materials and labor we couldn’t build one for that. They are now $75+.

Those are babies. I took a welding class at the local vo-tech last winter and made one out of 6 x 6 x .25 that stands about 3 ft tall. I used a piece of metal grating for the top piece. I still need to attach the cleanout and wood feeder doors on it.

They are great for cleaning up the yard's twigs as well.
