I’ve been looking for a rocket stove, and have been toying with the idea of buying rocket stove bricks to have enough on hand to make a makeshift cooking stove should the SHTF.

I’ve also been looking at stoves like this one, but they’re pretty expensive. Well, I found this guy online, and was going through his area, so I arranged to stop by his forge. He doesn’t ship the bigger stoves. Wound up snagging the stove shown in this video for $85. I don’t think that’s a bad price at all.. can’t wait to try it out. It was surprisingly light and easy to handle/move.

I might request a bit more stability from the base, given the height, but it looks like an efficient stove.
For the price, it's a good buy!

I agree Kauboy. The first thought I had was that looks like it could tip over so easily. If it does, it should be an easy fix and much easier than building from scratch

Mount a picatinny rail on the bottom and attach two bipods. They would fold up for storage.

It is nice that we as a group are appreciated. I am glad that he stopped by for a visit.

It did take a bit to push it over in his video. I wasn't thinking about it being used on a concrete floor. My nephew said that maybe a couple of his rebar tent stakes would useful when using it on uneven ground.

Got to be honest...
I love new stuff. I especially love new stuff to make fires with.

With that said, my choice for a product to cook with is a Fiebox stove.
It's much more packable if I have to pack and go and is just a better choice for an on the run quick stove.

Hey everyone! Yeah I've been creepin around the forum a bit. I'm surprised that someone was able to post the video of my response before I was able to myself. Again thx for the feedback. And if you guys have any questions about the stoves or metalworking in general I'm more than happy to answer them.

on the go? Packable? Ya, I have some super light titanium rocket pocket stoves I use that are the size of a large cup.. they sit in my GHB. This is an emergency cooking stove for a BOL or my home if the SHTF.
