    This will look familiar to those that have read my other tutorial about building a rocket stove.
    Read about making the full sized version here: https://members.gunnook.com/content....a-Rocket-Stove

    Well, I'm calling this one "Son of Rocket Stove".



    By miniturizing the design you can make a much smaller version that's even more portable.
    This version can be stashed in a backpack, so it's a better option for survivalists, hikers, and campers. While it won't be as powerful as a full sized rocket stove, it is still very capable and will still boil water and cook food.

    Here's the materials you'll need to build one.


    • 1x 4" diameter 28 oz can and it's removed top lid
    • 3x 10.5 oz regular soup cans
    • Insulation (Kitty litter, sand, perlite, vermiculite, dirt)
    • Wire hanger
    • (Optional) Stove and fireplace mortar
    • (Optional) High heat stove paint





    Here's the tools you'll need.

    • For safety wear heavy gloves, the edges of the cut cans are dangerously sharp. Safety goggles should be worn also because of the danger of flying metal particles.
    • A Sharpie for marking cut lines.
    • Tin snips or a Dremel rotary tool for making the cuts.
    • A straight edge screwdriver for starting cut holes if you're using snips.
    • A hammer for punching holes with the screwdriver and flattening can.
    • A can opener.
    • A file for removing loose metal from cuts.
    • Pliers for straightening bent can edges.
    • Fireplace and Stove Mortar. (Optional) This isn't really needed, but it does help to seal up gaps making the stove more solid, more efficient and makes sure loose insulation doesn't leak out. It's also good

    The Rocket Stove is one of my favorite survival stoves. Because of the way it's designed, a little bit of fuel goes a long way, it produces enough heat to cook and boil water. These stoves will burn wood, paper, cardboard, fuel cubes, charcoal, pretty much any type of solid fuel. By having a split fuel chamber more air is drawn into the chamber causing the fuel to burn much hotter, forcing the heat produced up the chimney and focusing it on whatever cooking implement is over it.

    There are lots of advantages to using a rocket stove than an open fire pit.

    • Less fuel is needed
    • Less heat loss
    • Less ash is produced
    • Less environmental impact
    • Faster water boiling/cooking
    • Less chance of forest fires
    • Will burn regardless of wind or weather conditions
    • Less smoke
    • Small enough to be portable and not too hard to make, the rocket stove is an excellent survival tool, and great for camping also. In this article I'll show you step by step how to make one for yourself from common household objects.




    Here's the materials you'll need:

      

    Soak the cans in hot water and dish soap if needed to remove labels and glue.

    You'll need insulation for the inside of the stove, this material will stop heat loss from the sides of the stove. Common materials used are: sand, kitty litter, vermiculite, ...

    Don't throw away those used fast food straws, they make handy containers that can be used to hold and protect any number of useful items.




    Use a drinking straw to store matches away from moisture.
    Cut straw to length.


    Seal one end of the straw using a pair of pliers and a lighter.


    Insert matches with the heads toward the already sealed end, ...
