Building a rocket stove doesn’t have to be hard, all it really takes is 4 concrete blocks at a cost of around 6 bucks.
Pick up a few sticks, twigs and leaves, start the fire, and your really to cook. All the heat is funneled up through the block chambers, creating a massive funnel of hot air. The good thing about rocket stoves is they need very little fuel. Make sure your blocks are dry to prevent cracking. Do not over heat.
