Mike Haasl wrote:That is a cool rocket.  I'm thinking it's more of a rocket grill than a rocket oven?  I updated the requirements a bit to reflect some of the key characteristics of a rocket oven.  For future submissions...



It is made from an old grill top, and that's what I intended it to be at first--an efficient grill that runs on wood. I found out that it works more like a convection oven. It's what Paul's video calls a "black" oven. It has surpassed all expectations.

Tonight I baked two loaves of sourdough bread as a two-for bb. Thanks to Josiah for the starter and Mike and Devon for eating fresh slices with me. Good way to spend a snowy evening, all quiet except for Mike’s peening hammer in the background.

I baked an apple crumble in the rocket oven at Wheaton Labs today!  It takes a lot of little sticks to get it up to temp but once there, just a couple bigger ones will keep it going easily at 350.  By "little" I mean the cross section of a sugar cube and "bigger" is the diameter of an apricot.  It got a bit dark on top but it didn't burn to the pan and was eaten in short order.
