Hi Tim, I use the basic SkamoStove Board  is suitable for hot face or back up insulation of all refractory constructions. It will not decompose even when subjected to direct flame, but the maximum service temperature should be taken into consideration. This one is rated for 1100c or around 2000f they do make other more expensive boards but I prefer the cheap one to play with!
It is 25mm thick.

That is great, Fox! There are a lot of videos of people building their rocket stoves. But we don't have enough videos of people enjoying their rocket stoves. I'm glad your system works so well for you and your friends.

Well the winter is coming, we were hit by a huge storm last week with winds well over 100mph.
So after a long dry summer we are experiencing a wet windy Autumn but the vortex J tube is on a mission to boil anyone who gets to close……
