How To Make A Rocket Stove Made From a Five Gallon Metal Bucket

Have you ever heard of the latest trend in self sufficient living called the rocket stoves? Well if you haven't already, prepare to be amazed, and if you have... here's a tutorial to show you how to make a rocket stove from a five gallon metal bucket. Usually stoves are made in a way that the chimney column rises towards the sky, so that the smoke can follow along and escape. While that has been common practice for most designs, now there's a new method of creating stoves to have horizontal chimneys instead. The reason for this change is because it actually saves a lot of energy, and ends up requiring less wood to create the same amount of heat. This design is something that is a great resource for third world countries where cooking food is very difficult, it saves needing to gather a bunch of wood, and it's also a great way to heat houses if you scale it to be larger.

There are a lot of tutorials that are popping up on the internet nowadays, and I'm sure they will continue to funnel in as more and more people discover just how useful of a design this rocket stove is. This particular article explores a step by step method, and walks you through the instructions with diagrams and simple explanations. Technically these aren't quite legal in the US or Canada, but you'll have to look into building laws to know exactly what's true. Although, it can't hurt to learn about, and build one purely for educational purposes either! It's a great design, and I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more of it in the coming years.
