We had a rocket stove workshop on July 3rd and we are currently finishing up our first rocket stove that will be used for cooking and canning. 

Here is a good link to a powerpoint presentation that lays out some of the design details.

Right now I am trying to determine the optimum flue height and distance from the bottom of the pot to the top of the flue.

Here are some pics of the workshop: More pics to come of our stove, including test results.

Thanks for the great power point! I look forward to hearing how well it works-Janaki

Here is a video to the first trial run of my Rocket Stove - it boiled ~ 1 gallon of water in only 10 minutes using a handful of small, scrap sticks.
