One common concern for prepping is how you will be able to heat up and cook any food if you don’t have the nice stainless steel range to cook on? You might have a freezer full of the best steaks but they are awful tough eatin (yes that is the correct spelling) if they aren’t cooked to a nice medium rare at a minimum. A great Prep to either have or know how to make is a Rocket Stove.

Rocket Stoves were developed by a man named Sam Baldwin back in the early 80’s. What makes them so great is that the Rocket Stove concept achieves efficient combustion of whatever you are burning (normally small pieces of wood) at a really high temperature. It can do this because the unique design of the Rocket Stove allows a good air draft into the fire and this ensures you have a near complete combustion of the fuel and associated gases. Because of its simple year ingenious design, it has been used for cooking purposes in many third-world locales (notably Rwandan refugee camps) as well as for space and water heating.

LDSPrepper has taken this idea and adapted it to 5 simple cans most of us would either have laying around or could easily get our hands on. Using the steps in this video below you can actually build a rocket stove yourself with items lying around your house. Check out his video below.

[…] make a great surface that produces a lot of heat without a big footprint. There is an article about how to make a rocket stove out of a few cans that you should check out […]

[…] here is to boil water for hot drinks and food and to get a bit of heat. I’d use my BioLite but a basic rocket stove made from an old number 10 tin can would work great. Carry fuel and ignition. Snow means getting a new supply might be impossible. […]

[…] A rocket stove and thermal-mass heater can heat my pot of water now, have a cavity and lid that acts like an earthbox/slow-cooker and a cabinet to serve as an old-school warming box, be shaped into a lounger, slowly dissipates and keeps my house nice and toasty, and with embedded plumbing can have additional water right there still hot or warm for a hand wash or a faster mug of tea. A coil of hose in a greenhouse ceiling can provide some of the same benefits. […]
