Cooking Castle - A flat pack rocket stove Outdoor

101 Like

This is a re-mix of the Rocket King on Amazon. I took my inspiration from that design, however I added a bottom plate, a top grate, an upper shelf position, changed the dimensions, thickness, air inlets, shelf, and storage method. This flat pack rocket stove is 10"x7"x7" plus the shelf. The shelf has two positions, one near the bottom to load wood fuel, and one at the top to support canned fuel. The base has a bottom plate to contain ash, and has air inlet holes on all for sides for even air flow. These holes double as a place to add a carabiner to clip all of the parts for storage. The upper grate supports smaller pots or cans, and also adds rigidity to the stove. The unit pictured is 14ga aluminum with clearances for easy fitment. If you want to use thinner material, I suggest tightening up the fitment slots, or just adding nubs to them. If making this out of aluminum, the top grate must be steel.

    May i ask why the top plate should be steel? is it because of food poisoning reason or material durability reason? Thank you!

    It melts if it's aluminum. The sides hold up fine, it's just the grate that is in the direct flame that has a problem.

    I cut this out today out of 16 ga. cold roll steel for the sides, stainless for the grates, and its absolutely wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

    Made this out of 14 GA. Works great, but bottom plate doesn't do much, I prefer running it without, and saved material. I prefer to dig a small pit. The top won't fit, but again to save on Mat'l I'd pass and just run a pot on it's broad 4 corners. The corners already protrude past the cook surface, might be an area to look at re designing, but I run without the top and bottom. Great design Kevin.
