Kelly Hart posted an interesting story the other day about a Rocket-fired Oven and Griddle that really caught my eye. I think lots of readers would be interested in learning more about this stove. There’s some additional info on the Firespeaking.com website that will prove useful.
“The new Rocket-Fired Griddle Oven was built during the Natural Building Colloquium at the Black Range Lodge in Kingston, NM. The Griddle Oven was designed and built by Flemming Abrahamson of Fornyet Energi and Max Edleson of Firespeaking.
The Griddle Oven features a rocket-style combustion box which offers clean combustion as demonstrated by virtually no visible smoke exiting the chimney. The heat generated travels beneath the griddle top as it also wraps completely around the barrel oven before exiting the chimney. The result is a rocket stove with amazing versatility as it efficiently cooks just about any type of food you can imagine and can also be utilized to heat your home. Pancakes, fajitas, eggs and more can be cooked on the top griddle surface while lasagnas, bread, stews and pies can bake in the barrel oven below.”
Note how you can sign up on their website to receive free plans for a smaller version. A smaller size should be more suitable for most people.
