Here it is! My very own homemade rocket stove. I've been enamored by the concept since I first heard of it, bought the materials last summer and finally got around to putting it together today. Now it's at my parents waiting to swallow up the ashes from their wood stove as insulation. The lid has been cut down to fit inside, over the ashes and around the stovepipe.
All I need is a metal grill to place across the top for the pan to sit on and a few twigs to burn and I'll have a highly efficient (and cheap) cooking appliance.
