A rocket stove is very similar to the standard masonry core designs. It is worth a try.

And how big the oven is.

Question Re: Rocket Stove Brick Oven

Gudday
I would think that the oven size or rocket stove size would not be the overriding factor but the ability of the ovens ceramic to take up the heat. The rocket stoves are basically a blow torch and a lot of that heat would be exhurst from the oven before being used or stored in the ceramic ?

Question Re: Rocket Stove Brick Oven

Gudday again
Further to my first thoughts perhaps the material of the oven should be more conductive ie steel so it would take in the heat faster . Back that with refractory layer as a heat bank an then of course an insulation layer.

As far as metal goes, the longevity factor is the reason that I am staying away from the use of it as much as possible. I live in an area that receives an overabundance of precipitation for the majority of the year. Most of the designs floating around wouldn't make it through one winter here.

The other issue is cooking temps and times. Metal is going to have a different result of holding and retaining heat than masonry even when it is only a layer. There are others that use metal as seen in the videos and pics on this thread. I would rather stick to a masonry oven. I happen to also prefer the look of masonry.

Wood fired kilns have their firebox under the oven and then the flames rise into the kiln. In effect a giant rocket stove. They fire to porcelain temperatures (1300 C)

I played around with air intake tonight. Bought some cheap grill mesh. Limited the opening underneath and bent the mesh to see what worked best. For the little bit of sticks that I burned it seemed to hold up well. I do want to add a wombat hole in the future.

Great point. I realize that a standard rocket stove isn't needed to heat up brick. I'm now researching kiln designs to incorporate some of those elements in this hybrid.

I am looking at rocket ovens as well but am thinking along the lines of less thermal mass and more insulation. Like one of the posts stated, a bit like a blow torch - not much good with a lot of thermal mass.

Here is one of my favourite videos of a traditional rocket oven at the Poilane bakery in Paris. If you love ovens and bread, this is for you.

McGuire Stove part 6 The finaleeee - YouTube I know this is'nt a rocket stove, but, I came across it. It features secondary air combustion,a very complete burn. This guy goes a step further and uses lava rock for a catalyst...his stoves are homemade as well as the videos but, the concept is on target. I may have him build me one, as the one in my shop really creosotes the pipe.... Look at some of the temps this stove gets...What if a floor was built over the lava rock area....or it was somehow ammended to the bottom of a masonary floor...Food for thought!
