What do you do when your propane runs out, and you don’t have large quantities of wood to devote to cooking? Of course you need some alternate source of combustible material. Wood works great but in conventional wood burning stoves you will waste a great deal of wood in heat energy that didn’t go towards cooking the food. This Heavy Duty Grover Rocket Stove eliminated that problem entirely by allowing you to use small twigs, leaves, and pretty much any dry plant matter will do, such as weeds, dry sage brush, etc.

Description of the Heavy Duty Rocket Stoves
These Heavy Duty Grover Rocket Stoves have a rounded steel bar for a handle bar for easy transporting. There is a flat tongue inside feeding entrance where the wood is fed that allows air to draw underneath the wood to fan the fire. This particular rocket stove has a 7″ square aluminum accessory plate that can be placed on top that is great for evening out the heat when cooking and also great for smaller cooking pots or cans that normally wouldn’t fit on the top of the stove.
Rocket Stoves for Hot Meals in Hard Times
At a picnic one time we used three quarters of a 4 gallon bucket with wood and cooked for 5 hours and ate hotdogs, corn on the cob, potatoes and marshmallows. When starting a fire in the rocket stove, don’t over stuff it being that you want air flow to get the fire going. A small piece of rolled up paper or some dried leaves can get it started and you can use small twigs and branches or wood that you’ve split with a hatchet to feed the fire.
How to Light a Fire in Grover Rocket Stoves
Lighting a fire in these rocket stoves usually takes only one match, but it will take a little practice to get use to building fires in them. Wad up two or three small pieces of paper and drop them down the top of your Rocket Stove so that they can drop right to the bottom of the rocket stove. Next put two pieces Â¼ inch by 7 inch kindling in the feed hole and drop a couple of additional one inch size wads of paper down the top. You can also drop two or three 4 inch long and Â¼ inch diameter kindling pieces of wood down the top to get it started. Next roll up a piece of newspaper or start a twig on fire, and put it into the rocket stove under the plate into the bottom chamber, this chamber is used as the air intake after the fire gets going. If you have a shortage of newspaper, you can use junk mail/magazines etc, which for us is a virtually endless supply. Experimenting with lighting your Heavy Duty Grover Rocket Stove you will find new ways of keeping it going. I have found that after the chamber heats up you can increase the size of your wood (if you have access to larger pieces) so you won’t have to tend it as much. Also I have found before placing any pots on top, give it a few minutes to burn until the there is some hot ashes inside, otherwise you might cause the fire to smother causing it to smoke more. Everyone develops their own method for getting a fire going in their Grover Rocket Stoves that will work best for your outdoor cooking.
When you are finished cooking and your H. D. Grover Rocket Stove has cooled down, you can use the handle and gently bump the tongue on the ground to dump out the ashes and is ready to use again for your next meal.
