Tried this last night – works
If video doesn’t show – here is link. Love the simplicity.April 7, 2014 at 12:30 pm #7503
What a simple, amazing thing. I have a ton of twigs collected and cured over the past few months that would be perfect for this. I am getting the block this week – thank you, tweva!April 7, 2014 at 12:40 pm #7506
Anika, we ended up putting brick on the top of the block to raise the stove ring up a bit. That helped even out the heat on the pot when we added more fuel – so stuff didn’t burn like in the video. Still worked great.April 7, 2014 at 12:42 pm #7507
Yes, the grilled cheese’s tragic scene made me cry! haha Good tip, thank you!April 7, 2014 at 2:26 pm #7514
Thanks Tweva, very good. Best things are always simple.April 7, 2014 at 3:11 pm #7527
If you don’t have the H-block you can knock the end out of a regular block so the fire can burn through. Looks like all you need to break is about half way down the center. Leaving the bottom half will keep some of the block’s strength.April 7, 2014 at 8:20 pm #7580
tweva, Oh I can do this in my sleep. If you do not have an h brick just cut the side of a brick and use that.
Thank you.April 7, 2014 at 9:14 pm #7598

Thanks so much, Tweva. Going to get some blocks right away…As Selco said, best things are simple. KISS…April 8, 2014 at 3:57 pm #7701
Thanks for sharing, tweva. I’ll be trying this one!April 8, 2014 at 4:21 pm #7704
Reminds me of a stove my old Scoutmaster taught us some 30 years back.
Thanks for the memory, will pass it onto my Scouts.May 8, 2014 at 4:11 am #12868
If you add an additional cinder block on top, the higher ‘chimney’ just might make it burn more efficiently. Just a thought….May 12, 2014 at 2:22 pm #13488
Cool idea. I’ve been researching rocket stoves lately so it’s cool to see one on here.
When I get back home in a couple weeks I’ll do a post on making one with some tin cans, much like the one in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_p2_OgDBksI
(I’ll make a topic about the guys book also shortly. I’m not finished it yet but I really enjoy it so far)

Great links, Tweva & Mr. Red- will plan to read his book and see what other things he discusses.
