Note: you will notice my kettle has an open spiral base so kettle doesn't cover the entire opening of the chimney. if your kettle has a flat base you will need to elevate the kettle from the chimney hole a tad to allow smoke flow. Flat stones or tiles on the corners to rest kettle onto will work.
this is so cool! i have been keeping my eyes open for a volcano kettle / kelly kettle to make hot drinks outdoors, but this would be really cool! thanks for sharing :)
nothing like picky spring leaves off of lemon balm, lavender blooms, peppermint, and placing in teapot when kettle is simmering away!! lovely drinks when cooled with honey while gardening! the simple pleasures count BIG!!
Love it. I have been looking at rocket stove designs but hey. all we need is what we have.
Hi Kate.. these are hollow cement blocks, also known as cinder blocks. you only need two tall-not the three i have in this photo... works either way
Wow! Thanks, Roll on summer, and I will build one. :-)
We have fire bricks and lots of twigs in our yard. :-)
yes, hollow bricks. I ended up having to go to Placemakers to purchase three of hollow bricks for $3 a piece. for the base a recycled U mudbrick at the base. (You can shape that with bricks) bricks placed on recycled u beam steel.. easy, and wonderful to have this addition in the garden. g.
Hi Gabriella, I've heard of the rocket stove. Do you have some information on it? is the one in the picture just hollow bricks?
