DIY Rocket stove!!

Gotta love this DIY! :-D

That was the most bizarre thing I have ever seen. A wood stove, meaning made of wood. And, it is setting on a wooden table? What is a rocket stove? I see all sorts of them. What makes it a "rocket" stove? He is going to carry a cordless drill campng? Wouldn't it be just as easy to carry a metal rocket stove as a drill? I thought the drill had his other hand several times!

I do not get to see what he put inside the hole before he set the stove to boil the water ... How long will the stove last?

@Linda, pretty sure "Rocket" is a brand of an ultra-compact portable camping stove. most hikers wouldn't want the weight of the wood stove.
@Wan, bet a person being frugal with the fire could get a few uses out of such a thing. I think the guy is just feeding kindling through the hole. ?

He mentioned that he could take the cordless drill on a camping trip. So, he would not be carrying the log, but the drill. Oh, I did not know about it being a brand.

As for the other commentor, the guy poured something into the stove, something liquid, like alcohol or fuel. He put it back on the table to the left of the screen.

Even though it was bizarre, I was just fascinated. He even said the water was warm when he started, so he didn't know how long it really would take to boil water.
