Preppers stay well-fed and warm after disasters with survival cooking on a DIY home-built rocket stove

***Fund Raising - Its that time again. We still have our $300 deficit, no jewelry sales so far in January, and a major car repair, so we really do need help this month.  We are in the middle of some extremely interesting rabbitholes as you might have guessed with the exposure of the Motorola Company and their skin tattoo and today we have more exposure coming up on the Motorola company which will point fingers as to that tattoos real purpose in our lives.

We have several areas of research we are into and would like to continue doing what we do.  Its been a journey of discovery and we would not want to stop at this critical point and we need your partnership help to keep going.   Please support our efforts in this venture so that we may make it more difficult for the evil ones to complete their agenda. (We are also waiting for confirmation on the arrival of the twin star, but I won't put it up until I get another reliable source.)

Again, we also would like to express our appreciation to all those who visit our site, pass on our work, and contribute in some way, especially in the "comments section" where some leads are given to us by our readers. Those then turn into rabbitholes that we press down to extract truth and information.  And the money contributions allow us to spend the time we need to find and distribute this information even with all the harassment we get doing so. You have no idea the time spend just reading everything and from that we select the best we can find to put up for your education and edification.  

Bless you and keep you all safe, and have a prosperous and happy  New Year.  My best wishes for your attempts to keep your New Year's resolutions made this year.  I am even wishing that for myself.  LOL

Vatic Note:   Its not just that we yearn for heat and food, but we must have it to survive, especially in cold weather.  This below is in line with our series on Preppers items that need to be shared with everyone so we all have a good chance at surviving these insane creatures ravaging our beautiful country and our wonderful people.

We just did one on how to heat the inside of your house, cheaply when the power goes off or when you can't afford the rate increases they are piling on us at this worse time ever when the economy has been destroyed by these same owners of our utililties.  Check their boards of directors and who they are affiliated with and you will see it the same khazar zionist bankers. 

Have a barrel outside with a cover on it, where you can put clean warm clothes, underwear and socks in case clothing becomes a victim of whatever disaster you may experience.   I learned that from the croations who had done that and it saved their lives.  Anyway, just print these survival things I post and keep them, study them, work on preparing them and that way, no  matter what happens you will be ready for anything.

After a disaster when power is out, the two most important things people yearn for are heat and food. A rocket stove is a useful survival tool because it produces a very hot flame and needs very little fuel. These stoves are highly efficient woodstoves, which can also burn coal or other biofuels. They are simple to construct, making sustainable cooking stations that can also be used as heating units at campsites and in your own backyard.

Rocket stoves are inexpensive to build, and can be quickly erected from bricks, blocks or stones around your yard. Because they use such a small amount of fuel, they’re down right cheap to maintain and can be augmented with solar panels and other modifications to provide a wide range of heating and cooking facilities. If building one for use indoors, remember it needs to be vented.

It’s best to build your rocket stove ahead of time, so you have the opportunity to purchase any necessary items; or at least purchase what you’ll need and stash the parts somewhere safe for later. Please refer to the links in the Resources section for videos and other photos.

Building a simple DIY rocket stove

1. Clear an area in your yard from grass and debris. Allow enough distance for safety from the house, shed or other structure.

2. Dig a hole deep enough to lay a base with thinner concrete blocks or bricks, laying them flat in the hole. If you have a driveway or patio space, build your rocket stove on the surface to save time and effort.

3. Assuming you’re building your rocket stove by digging a hole first — level the bricks or blocks in the hole, fill part way with gravel or other small loose rock, then top off with a layer of sand. This creates stability. If you don’t have gravel or sand, use whatever you have on hand to create a stable base that’s as level as possible.

4. Using metal snips and wearing heavy work gloves, cut a hole in the bottom of a #10 steel can to fit around a 4″ or 6″ wood stovepipe elbow. Slide the elbow into the hole; it should be a snug fit. Remove the top of the can around the can’s edge and safely discard the top.

5. Stack the cinder blocks around the edge of the base in a square or rectangular shape to a height of about 18 inches. Height is adjustable. You might need to blow air into the stove to get the fire started, so the final height should be convenient to reach when bending.

6. Lay the can on its side in the center of the base with the elbow pointing upwards.

7. Place blocks, bricks or rocks around the can and pack into place with earth or mortar. Fill in spaces around between the outside of the can and the stones with wood ash, dirt or sand to insulate. If you’re using cinder blocks, fill holes with dirt, mortar or sand.

8. Attach a piece of stovepipe to the upward-pointing end of the elbow so that it extends straight up. Stovepipe and elbow should fit snug.

9. Stack additional blocks or rocks around the perimeter of the stovepipe, mortaring into place until you reach the top. Then add one more layer of brick or block around the top edge for clearance from the top of the pipe and the open flame.

10. Fill the block column with dirt, wood ash or sand to insulate the piping.

11. Place a barbeque grill, large cast iron trivet, or a metal tire iron on top of the blocks to finish your rocket stove.
