    Any one use Rocket Stoves?

    These things seem to be catching on in the last year or so. I built a 4" to test the concept several years ago and I am thinking about building a bigger one like this... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvlOelD5HOE

      I cant copy/paste pics here for some reason. I can post it to another group and post the link, but i hate doing that. Amazon has a rocket burner with a grate on top that is close to what I built. I may add the griddle to that and see how it works. I have some 6" gas pipe I have been looking for an excuse to use for something and this is the best I could come up with. https://www.amazon.com/Pancho-Villa-...1EJ990GXVZ73S2

        turns out the pipe I thought was 6" turns out to be 4. plan B is to buy a 20' stick of 6" square tubing when I only need 3, or roll my own. I have some Ideas on how to do a combo rocket burner/ grill/ griddle. I messed around with the 4" and some 1/2" x 1" splits. It will get plenty hot, but seems like it goes through fuel pretty quick. A bigger hopper and longer/ thicker sticks will help burn time and increase heat I like the 2 input system that the one in the video has

                  Dragon fan with 3” duct to get it farther away from the heat. Wired the fan to a power adapter Because it’s so battery hungry.

                  You can see that the rocket stove concentrates the heat on a 3-4” circle in the center of the wok. You can tell because above 800 the seasoning is gone. (This was a test shot, I normally get food in there as soon as the oil is heavily smoking around 600).

                Dude, this set up is awesome. I love it! Do you run lump in the stove or do you burn wood? I might get one of these things. They look like a blast. Dude, this set up is awesome. I love it!

                  I’ve been using briqs for this so far. It goes through them fast but as you go you can just lift the wok and toss a few in the top.

                  I’m sure it would work with just about any fuel.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  the good one grill
                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

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.

                  kareubequ bbq 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.

                  masterbuilt gas 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'.

                  Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
