If you don't know what a rocket stove is, have a look at "rocketstoves.com" or search at Youtube where there are tons of very good videos to get inspiration from.

I really like your design.
But it seems like it might get clogged with ash at the bottom of the burn pipe?
Or it might be hard to start the air convection through the larger pipe?

I had no problems with the ash yet.
But you're right, you have to be very careful when you start the fire, to prevent getting a backward-draft. I always push some sheets of paper down the chimney and light them to start the draft in the right direction.

Next time I definitely make a 'real' rocket stove and not a pocket rocket, then you don’t have these problems.

As far as the smoke drafting the wrong direction, just blow the feed tube like you were blowing out a candle. That should get the air flow going in the other direction and the heat will do the rest.
