A pretty basic build, but this stove has awesome draft ! No need for electricity, when the SHTF it will still be working fine. Once the 16 ft of vertical 6" stove pipe going straight up through the roof warms-up, combined with the draft created by the 40" high Metal-Bestos heat riser, (6" stove pipe mounted inside the hot water heater, now a space heater) just above the fire pot, makes for an awesome rocket effect.
No problems burning pellets (or anything else for that matter, tree branches work great too) in this unit. It is very efficient, just a few brances, or what have you, yields a lot of heat. The fresh air intake, draws like there's a blower upstream. Clean burning too.
This is a proto-type rocket heater I knocked together out of some old crap, scrap odds and ends I had laying around, except for some new 6" stove piping.
