Rocket stoves are a great item to have on hand. They’re great in a survival situation, or for camping. They can also be a little pricey. You can find them on Amazon for anywhere from $45-$160. So why not make your own for about $5.
This rocket stove you are going to be making is very nice looking and is very simple to make, and can be made in a couple of hours even if you are not real handy.
One of the nice things about this rocket stove is that you will be able to cook full meals using very little fuel. By fuel we mean leaves, twigs, and small sticks. Just a brief side note: main body of stove (largest can) is a one gallon paint can. It was purchased at Home Depot for $5.
Medium sized can is a pasta sauce can and the smallest can is a standard size soup can. For this video a 2 1/2″ hole saw to mark (score) the paint can.
To make your rocket stove you will need: 3 metal cans, gravel/sand and/or dirt! that’s it. The only tools you will need are a hacksaw, pliers and a drill. This stove is powerful, wind and rain resistant.

Papa’s got a brand new bag: Use a large Ziploc bag or (if you’re me) put some air into the bag of wine you brought with you and use as a comfy pillow. Wine bags double as a handy flotation device.
Frisbees: These offer amazing support for paper plates and make great water bowls for dogs.
Tick Tac boxes: Great for storing spices and keeping matches dry. You can also dip the ends of your matches in wax or clear nail polish to make them waterproof.
Pack pancake mix into Ziploc bags. When you ready to make them, add water, seal the bag and knead to mix. Then just cut the bottom corner off the bag and pipe the mixture into your pan.
Got a splinter? Place a small piece of banana peel onto the affected area and cover with a Band Aid. The splinter will dissolve after a day or two.
Dirty plates or pots? Use sand to scour the worst of the dirt off and absorb the grease then rinse and wash.
Need fire lighters? Doritos chips or crayons will burn for a couple of minutes and will act as great fire lighters.
Freeze water in water bottles to keep food cool over the first couple of days and for drinking towards the end of your trip.
