Whether you need to sterilize some water or cook a meal, you need a way to do so. Boiling water or cooking food can take a lot of time and energy unless you know a few tricks. Here’s where building a rocket stove may come in handy.
Of course, you could always just use a regular fire to do the job, but that’s going to take more time, which means it’s going to use more fuel. With a rocket stove you don’t need a bunch of fuel to cook or boil anything; in fact, you don’t need much more than some small sticks.
Rocket stoves are a great alternative to even your everyday stove, making them great for when SHTF. The stove in the video is made entirely of cinderblocks, although you can make rocket stoves using other items such as bricks or even blocks of wood. Even if you’re not a prepper and maybe you just want to live off-grid, rocket stoves are a great option.
Just because you can boil water to sanitize it, doesn’t mean it’s completely clean and clear of bacteria. You should always keep an emergency water supply just in case disaster strikes. If you run out, then you can move on to having to boil river water, or even toilet water. Remember, it’s always best to tinker with these off-grid tools and equipment before something drastic happens. Take the time you have now to learn which methods work best for you, and as always, be safe.
