I made myself a white man's fire in my fancy new rocket stove.
I started by creating a lot of smoke, then I got a raging inferno with flames reaching a foot or two out of the stove. I then proceded to burn my plate of beans.
Cooking on the stove brought up the question of heating with wood.
The rocket stove is optimized for outdoor cooking. A more traditional Franklin Stove is what one wants for heating.
As I live in a valley with a pollution problem, I would want to go the route of wood pellets stoves for heating.
IMHO, the path to cleaner energy will have us using equipment optimized to the task at hand.
