How to Make Charcoal
Robert Flanagan, SAFFE, January 30, 2008

I've just been playing around with my natural draft stove to see how easy it would be to use it for cooking and making charcoal.

I fed some extra fuel in the side to show the pyrolysis reaction taking place.

Biomass cooking stove burns wood to charcoal and saves the charcoal. One pound of wood cooks 6 kilos of rice and makes 65 grams of char.

Hybrid Stove Burning Bamboo Pan Cooking

Here is another 3 min video of the Hybrid Stove burning bamboo chips and pan cooking eggs.
Bamboo chips burns well in the Side Supply Burner but the pan only reached medium heat.
The heat from the burner seems to be diffusing and bypassing the pan. Enough heat is being generated by the burner but the pan module lacks focus.
Suggestions to fix pan module?
