DIY Beer Keg Rocket Stove

It is never a bad idea to have a rocket stove these on your homestead. I already have a smaller paint can version, but I think I will upsize to this diy beer keg rocket stove.

They are very useful when you use wood for cooking, because you do not need as much wood as with a conventional stove. Small twigs and pieces of wood will usually do the trick, thanks to the clever design. Approximate total cost is only about $10, to buy the vermiculite.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • empty 5 litre beer keg
  • soup cans
  • small can
  • pipe cap ends
  • vermiculite
  • hand drill
  • pop rivet gun
  • small metal plate

Anything extra that is found on the top of the keg has to be removed before you can drill a hole the same diameter as the soup cans. One of the soup cans has a pipe end, the other one one has a hole in the middle that the smaller can fits perfectly into.

The two soup cans will be attached together one on top of the other and slide down the cent re of the keg to create the chimney. The keg is filled with the vermiculite for insulation. This project should not take more than 1 to 2 hours to complete.
