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.

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.
