    Default Rocket Stoves

    A great tool to have, "JUST IN CASE!"

    Heavy Duty Grover Rocket Stove: A Minimal Wood Using Cooking Stove

    This is the most heavy duty rocket stove that you can get on the market today and it is new for our customers. It is made of mostly 11 gauge cold rolled steel with a 5 year warrantee under normal use and conditions. This 17 lb. rocket stove is built like a rock and you won't be disappointed in owning it.
    What do you do when your propane runs out, and you don't have large quantities of wood to devote to cooking? Of course you need some alternate source of combustible material. Wood works great but in conventional wood burning stoves you will waste a great deal of wood in heat energy that didn't go towards cooking the food. This Heavy Duty Grover Rocket Stove eliminated that problem entirely by allowing you to use small twigs, leaves, and pretty much any dry plant matter will do, such as weeds, dry sage brush, etc.

    Buy the Heavy Duty Grover Rocket Stove today for only $160.00 plus get Free shipping to the lower 48 via UPS Ground. Please allow up to 3 business days for shipping. Please call or email for Hawaii, Alaska & Canada for shipping estimates.

    Another interesting option:

    Swedish Fire Log (Finnish Candle)
    Quote This is something that I’d heard of but only ever seen in a TV program by Ray Mears, so when someone turned up at a BCUK meet up with a log prepared for this I was interested to see how it would actually work.

    The log is prepared by cutting lengthways with a chainsaw to about a foot from the bottom.

    In this case the log, pine, was cut three times giving six vertical segments.

    The cuts are then loaded with birch bark and other tinder or kindling and this is lit to ignite the log segments.

    In this particular case some small twigs were also added to the kindling which turned out to be a mistake as they blocked the vertical air flow needed to ensure good ignition.

    After a slightly discouraging start these twigs were removed from the cuts and with just bark the result was much better.

    The original idea behind the fire log is to create a controllable fire which can be lit on snow as the base does not heat up and can be packed into the snow to keep the log vertical.

    Once the fire is burning well, a billy can, kettle or skillet can be placed directly on the top for cooking or heating.

    This is an interesting technique if you have a chainsaw, but a similar effect can apparently be produced by splitting the trunk with an axe and packing the sections carefully apart.

    yes they are pretty cool and great to have around.. im getting one next week.. the XL stove


    The WoodGas Camp Stove XL has all the features of the standard model that I tested last year. These WoodGas stoves are efficient cooking devices that burn almost any fuel that you can find in nature. Sticks, twigs, leaves and pine cones all work well with this stove, which uses a battery powered fan to force air into the burning chamber to create a robust cooking flame. The XL weighs in at 2 pounds 3 ounces, making it a viable choice weightwise for backpackers, but the overall dimensions may be considered too big. The WoodGas Camp Stove XL as well as the smaller LE model are great for emergencies

    im pretty sure you can do the same thing by digging a hole in the ground certain way too.. i have it somewhere in my papers..
