Yes we add wood the entire time.
to properly cook a Jambalaya, or Gumbo are Sauce Piquant you need at least two hours. (or a twelve pack of cold brew)
I've never looked into "burn time"

it is double walled and we insulate the void with vermiculite. It holds the heat and is lighter than sand that some folks have used.

That food looks good.

That rocket stove, then, weights less than a lb. ?

There are plenty you tube uploads, just look for "rocket stoves"

I'll get some pics of the other we made.
It's amazing what you can do with these things.
We cook in black iron kettles up to thirty gallons, I would love to have on big enough for something like that.
the week of the Jambalaya festival, we can go through literally hundreds of cords of wood.

This would be a "greener" way to cook for sure.

That's the thing......not sure they would be BPLite so to speak.
Likely weighs in at around 2 pounds.
It would make a great cooker if you primitive camp.

We line the boys up five or six at a time, let them cook and the dads judge the winners.
Cooking for boys and men is a real big deal at our camps and hunting leases.
My son could whip out a Jambalaya before I even felt comfortable with him cutting the onions....LOL

"greener"
Because this "model" Rocket Stove uses less wood or makes less smoke?

Do you use a modified #10 can for the inner can?

Thanks!
He is a great kid. I am blessed to have a three of those.

We use a large "bean" can. Like the larger baked bean can.
Then the feeder can is a standard veggie can.

3 of them :o I'm not sure that's a blessing. I think I'd rather have 3 girls :o (up until a certain age) ;)

It's awesome that you have a close relationship with them. Don't let them stray :o (No girlfriends)

So your son had to cut 2 large holes for the feeder can. I bet you helped out by furnishing a "Greenlee" knockout punch ;) with hydraulic compression system 8-)

Zelph, you speak with the wisdom of a master!!

It's too late for number one son, he is 22 and his girlfriend recently gave birth to our first grand child.....Charli Rose, a blue eyed, black haired diva sure to break many hearts.

Number two child is the girl with the biggest dimples on the LSU colorgaurd. (flag team of the band) She even smiled those big dimples on the big screen during the National Championship game!
the youngest still thinks I actually know something and loves the outdoors and all that goes with it.
He could win survivor I'm sure.

We are still doing it the hard way with the holes. You have to teach these kids the old school way and they learn better.
We first made dies to give us a template that matches the curvature of both the gallon can and the bean can.
Then we use the red curved tin cutters and go at it.

We then cut the top to fit tightly inside the gallon can and allow the bean can to come through the top about an inch.

Then we cut tabs in the gallon can and the bean can creating air flow and a mechanical hold for the previously inserted top.

Hope this make sense!
