(hand up) Yes. I've been interested in rocket stoves.
I have half an old 100 # LP tank that I've been thinking about making a rocket stove from.
I have some fabricating and welding skill.
Would be nice to see what you create.

I'd like to see how you make it. I've made one with a 55 gallon steel drum. Works great once it's warmed up.

I'd like to see your build.
I have a fairly large propane bottle (came off a fork-truck) that I think would be perfect for one of these.
... just gotta get it open without blowing myself up in the process.

Ol Hoot - be very careful!! Empty propane tanks have a nasty habit of going bang when you cut them with an angle grinder. Make very sure the tank is empty by removing the valve (Carefully!!!) and filling the tank with water for a couple of days. Leave the tank in a well ventilated area while you do this.

They are dangerous and that's exactly how I've been told to deal with it ... fill with water first.

just a thought, a larger propane bottle like that might be better as a grill or smoker?

I've got an ugly drum smoker, an off-set wood burner just about finished, a typical gas grill, a discada that sits on my fish cooker and a Coleman Camp Stove.
I like cooking stuff.

What I really need to do is get that sucker re-filled and have it set back somewhere, but I think the bottle is way out of date.
