Hi OOPS! :D

A Rocket Stove small enough to be a good backpacking stove, is a Tall Order to fill.
A #10 Can isn't really tall enough, but i did have some success using one with a tomato Juice
can as a Chimney. A Heineken 24 oz Keg Can will fit in the Tomato Juice can as the cooking pot.

The chimney has to be well insulated, or the stove won't draw.
Vermiculite and Fiberglass are both light enough.

If You build the feeder tube at a 45 degree angle, Gravity will feed the fuel to
the fire, and leave You free to do other things. I used a Soup can as the feeder tube.

Thanks for the Video!
Cheers!
