Thank you all for your links-perhaps they will help people who have not heard of rocket stoves. They truly are wonderful.
I have cooked several meals very quickly with just a handful of twigs collected from the yard. I have made one stove with with coffee can and soup cans, bricks(should use the fire liner bricks) and we have a manufactured one that we purchased which is good for wood or charcoal.
Given that 1 is none and 2 is 1.....and so forth, we have many options for meals and heated water:
1. fireplace 2. BBQ grill 3. Sterno stove 4. Rocket Stove
5. Solar Oven 6. Outdoor fire pit 7. Coleman Camping Stove 8. Solar Shower for heating water for bathing 9. I guess we could use one of the slots on the generator for the microwave or electric skillet/griddle.
Hopefully that’s enough. LOL
How about a regular woodstove? Or even a wood cookstove?
I have one of each but the cookstove isn’t emplaced. Only will be if necessary.
