Nobody wants another Katrina disaster, or any other kind of disaster for that matter. Unfortunately, disasters happen. When they do, clean and safe drinking water is on the top of the list of survivors. Being able to cook food safely and staying warm is a priority also. The Rocket Stove is a great choice for accomplishing these priorities. Debris and rubbish is potential fuel for the stove and it shouldn’t be a problem gathering fuel…unfortunately. If finding dry fuel for the stove is difficult, establish a fire in the combustion chamber and place the wet fuel in the oven to dry out. I wouldn’t let the wet fuel touch the combustion chamber due to possible unwanted ignition. There is plenty of room in the oven for drying and baking.
