Great idea for a rocket stove, simplepeddler. That is very doable! ;) Are there any vents in the bottom of the cyclinder other than the bottom intake under the fuel supply shelf? Spray paint the unit with some high temp grill paint and the welds will look perfect ;)

No vents, just face it in the wind and go.
They really work well.

Heavy Duty Stove for some heavy duty cooking. We definitely need something like this in the backyard. :D
I could do my low country boil on that.

Nice, very nice. Stable :D

Luke has the right idea. Let the big guys cook, call him when it's ready :mrgreen:

Is it insulated or is it the first burn in the photos?

That was indeed first burn, but it's insulated with vermiculaite between the burn chamber and outside walls.

I would think it would be "high risk" to put a cutting torch to a propane tank.

How empty can it get? I think some gas is always left inside.

It's actually a freon tank............but there are risk there too.
The guy soaked it in an amonia solution to kill the freon first.

we welded a coupling in the top, funneled the vermiculite in and "settled" it the screwed the plug in.

Luke is a special kid indeed, his downs has given him many struggles and he has spent a large part of his life at St. Jude's children's hospital.

He is a miracle on on all levels, and a rock star at his local school where is single mom is a teacher!! Remarkable what them two have accomplished.
