Introduction: Brick Wide Rocket Stove

About: There's always a better way, just keep recycling those brainwaves!

Extra wide rocket stove. I tried the smaller half brick chimney but needed a larger cooking area. Works better for me.

Step 1: Base Slab

my stove was set on a garden turf patch. I inset the slab by cutting a turf patch and ensured it was level.

Step 2: 1st Coarse of Bricks

i used 2 half bricks but you could use 2 whole on rear. Ensure snug fit around internal corners. I made grill out of corner plaster beading which i cut into 3 pieces and hammered flat for tray.

Step 3: 2nd Coarse

i used full bricks for the 2nd coarse.

Step 4: 3rd Coarse Onwards

full bricks for subsequent coarse ensuring snug fit around internal chimney. Alternate brick pattern interlace for each coarse.

Step 5: Top Stove Area

i used an old oven grill tray. for additional height offset i used ceramic tile spacers.

Step 6: Fire Her Up!

add wood above air grill . light up with paper or fire starters and burn until no smoke.

Step 7: Cook on It!

Chicken curry. Yumm.

Step 8: Rocket Oven

Heres my rocket powered oven. Its a big oven pot with aluminium trays.

Kebabs n Salmon tikka. Took about an hour in the oven . Yummy!

Step 9: Rocket Grill

Heres my rocket powered grill.
This cast iron grill cost £20 delivered from Andrew James.

This should keep direct smoke off the food. It has a flat and ribbed side. Ideal for burgers n bangers.

Have yet to try it. Will post pics when I do ☺

Question 25 days ago on Step 5

If I counted correctly, it should be 35 bricks? Could it be taller, with the tray in a higher position?

bottom 2 layers are 4 bricks each.=8 bricks. each layer pon top is 5 bricks. you could make it higher, alll depends on how much heat you want to cook with and the wood. more layers means less direct heat.

Thank you, after looking at more closely, I see what you mean. The other question was if I made it higher, could I make the fire layer higher as well, for instance on put the screen on the 3rd layer?
