Rocket stoves are no rocket science, but there is still a science to how they work. Luckily, they do not require elaborate mechanics, and they surely aren’t dependent on either gas or electricity to cook you a delicious meal and satiate your hunger.
So, what’s a rocket stove exactly and how does it work? A rocket stove works chiefly on wood fuel. Creating a simple exoskeleton for the stove, you insert a piece of wood to burn in the combustion chamber and let the flame and smoke rise through the chimney which is vertical and insulated. This makes the combustion to be complete even before the fire reaches the top cooking area.
Not only are rocket stoves simple in mechanics, but they are also extremely feasible for a traveler’s life, with their usually small size and easy portability. And yes, they are cheap on the pocket too. In fact, you can make them on your own, in a shape you deem best. Rocket stoves can be created using scrap and recyclable material. They are also used for heating homes or small spaces. Once you have a decent idea of how to make one, you can build a rocket stove in emergency situations too with no elaborate list of materials required.
