Have you purchased the awesome Rocket Oven DVD created by Paul Wheaton that walks you through the steps to build your own rocket oven? But are you feeling like you wish you had a print guide that had some more information about j-tubes and would help you get the most out of the DVD?
I mean some of us just like having print material as we work on a project.
If so then this Unofficial Companion Guide will help fill in some small gaps in the material covered by the Rocket Oven DVD. This includes information on how to build the j-tube that powers the rocket oven.
But if you have already purchased the DVD, then stay on this page to see how this guide can help you get started with your rocket oven.
The guide has 20 pages of information that when combined with the DVD will give you all the information you need to build your own rocket oven. Here is a 1 page exert from the guide:
The companion guide includes a complete list of all the tools and materials including links where you can buy them, so you can quickly get started without any hang-ups. This guide also gives you the exact run-time for each section of the DVD (and the included extra materials and safety microdoc) with notes, so you can quickly jump to the section of the DVD that you need while building your rocket oven.
But the biggest hole in the Rocket Oven DVD is the building of the j-tube part of the oven. This is what the oven sits on and is what powers the whole thing.
Really a j-tube is simple to build but the DVD only provides you an overview of the j-tube instead of covering each step to build one.
If you are like me, you will come away from this DVD looking for more information on how to build your own j-tube. Which is a bummer since the rest of the DVD is so good and provides such great detail on all the steps to build the oven part of a rocket oven.
That is where my companion guide will really help you.
I have scoured all the information I could find online on building a j-tube and compiled it into a simple guide.
With the information in the DVD and the information in the companion guide you should be able to build your own j-tube and finish your rocket oven.
Just imagine all the homemade pizzas you could be cooking in your new rocket oven!

The cBook loads very slooooooooowlllllyyyyyy! I tried to print it using PrimPDF and only 2 pages would have been converted to a PDF File.
I saved the article as a .html version. Usually when you have something like the html file of an item you can pull it over the icon of almost any Browser and let up on the mouse and the item will open. Well, I tried 3 different Browsers and it would NOT fully open in any of the three.
I tried going back to the cBook article to try and copy it from there into MS Word and then turn it into a PDF and I could not copy it.
I'm with the rest of you. I like to save articles for times when I'm not busy to sit down and read them. That is the convenience of computers!
I also vote for going back to a PDF format for articles like this one.
