Living Published on September 26th, 2011 | by Jeff McIntire-Strasburg UPDATE: Added another plan to the list… this one made from tin cans. Just back from a weekend trip up to the Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage, and between board meetings, was able to join in with the community’s annual open house and Village Fair. Many, many interesting things going on, but one of my favorites (given my interest in appropriate technology) was a stand selling popcorn popped on a rocket stove. I’m really intrigued by this beautifully simple concept, created by Dr. Looking for an alternative to the traditional outdoor barbecue grill, or even for heating your home (at least partially). 1. This one requires no more than stacking some bricks… though I’m guessing they would need to be made of a material like adobe (for the insulative properties). 2. You’ll need just a few more materials for this one from the Aprovecho Research Center, but it’s still pretty simple… 3. 4. 5. #6 The tin can rocket stove (10/1/11)
