Ceramic Charcoal Making Cookstove

Ron Larson and Richard Boyt, June 2003

Stovers: Richard Boyt and I are having a discussion on making charcoal-making stoves out of clay. Richard has sent me a new paper design below. This note is only on my own progress - which Richard has been kind enough to continue.

Initial Design Concepts:

  1. Wide bottom for stability
  2. Main body, grate, skirt, lid, cast lightweight ceramic.
  3. Preheat and control primary and secondary air.
  4. Remove pot, skirt, skirt top, chimney adapter, chimney for grilling, frying roast, etc.
  5. Fuel holder, chimney and adapter metal(?)
