    Got a rocket stove

    i came across this local guy on a craigslist ad who was selling custom rocket stoves he makes using recycled materials. i finally met up with him today and picked one up. Looking forward to breaking it in for some reverse searing or maybe just as a small campfire to make smores. i haven't fired it yet because i need to cut some smaller chunks of wood to fit it and didn't feel like running the chainsaw after a few vodka drinks (smarter than I am young!). also, i was thinking about hitting it with some high temp paint first but maybe not. i like me some patina!

    after looking it over i came to the conclusion that i could have made one myself using scrap pieces from local metal shop but i'd likely have spent more on welding wire, grinding wheels and welding gas (not to mention the time spent) than it cost to buy one already made. but i run in to this conundrum with everything I buy. i can't hobby everything as much as i'd like to!

    Fire that thing up!


      Totally cool ! ! !

      If you don't mind, what did it set you back ?


        it was $80. most I'd been shopping were $100-up plus shipping for similar material and construction and some were upward to $300. He was charging $100 when I first saw his ad and when he lowered it to $80 I figured I couldn't not save $20
        the guy is in Lakewood, CA. His name is Alan. he would likely ship but you'll pay shipping.

        this is him. tell him I sent ya!

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
