How will you cook when the power goes out?
My brother lived in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit. He was displaced for many months. So I know how important it is for all of us to be prepared.
To fare well in an emergency, you'll need food, water, clothing, shelter and something to cook with.
The first four of these are obvious to many people. But lack of the fifth one could kill you if you are caught unawares. Many people think they are already prepared to cook in an emergency, because they have a Coleman stove in the basement, or they can just build a campfire like they did at scout camp, right?
But if the emeregency lasts longer than your supply of Propane, where are you going to buy some more? What if large pieces of fire wood are hard to obtain? Then what? The hard truth is, that the water may not be safe to drink for weeks or months. What everyone needs is an easy to maintain stove that won't run out of fuel, so that you can always boil the water before drinking it, if necessary. A good emergency stove will literally save your life and the lives of your children.
Fortunately, a ROCKET STOVE will solve these problems, and you can build one (or buy one) for very little money. And you can efficiently cook your food and boil water, with just a few twigs!
You can have a virtually unlimited supply of free fuel to cook with.

This video was very helpful for me when I built my first Rocket Stove. The only problem that I encountered was that I wasn't able to locate a 5-gallon can like the one shown in the video. I solved this problem by adapting the instructions of the video to what I did have: a couple of large tin cans (these are the 'institutional size' or '#10' size cans).
HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN WITH TWO #10 TIN CANS
First, you'll need two #10 cans, like these:
AND two pieces of 4-inch stovepipe as shown (from the hardware store):
AND some tools as shown (also not shown are JB Weld, vermiculite, ruler, pen or pencil):
Second, you need to download my simplified adaptation of how to build your ROCKET STOVE from two #10 tin cans, from the following link:
