To compensate for the high heat, lift the skillet slightly. Love this idea.

Blocks will crack from heat eventually.

    True, yet easy to rebuild every few years

When the fire gets too big, then pull the top block back a little so there is not as much room for the heat to rise, then when the fire drops back a little, u can move the block back.

Been there, done that, no t-shirt. The blocks crack because of the heat. Useless.

Um those bricks are $2.50 a piece.

    never seen h block

The bricks will crack soon. Not made for intense heat – but OK for learning how combustion works.

Reply

Haha fire on these bricks/concrete makes them EXPLODE! learnt the hard way… This is very dangerous

Reply

I’m sick of these posts on every page claiming to build this build that for almost no money !!! Be real or at least honest !!!
Those bricks cost 2.50 each and can’t take the heat ??
You need to at least cover them in cob but even then why not make one that lasts ?

    Oh yeah we can so do this

    Reply

All of the above. These work for about 3 fires.

Reply

I will have one of those it’s just perfect

Reply

We call it a Cajun cooker.

Reply

that will cost more than $5 and it will also crack upon using more than a few times..just dont do it.

Reply

    I was thinking the same thing. But you could build something similar with fire brick.

    Reply

    Jan Phillips where do you find that?

    Reply

    mhmm one could/ a little more assembly and more than 4 bricks, its a basic fire chamber. go a step further add the secondary burn chamber so that the gassification is complete thereby increasing fuller burn efficiency. .

Concrete blocks should never be used in fire pits as they tend to explode!

Reply

That is dangerous! Concrete explodes when introduced to fire. SMH

Reply

That will last five minutes until the cement heats up and falls apart, especially if it’s a rocket stove. Five dollars for five minutes?

Reply

yes mine exploded after few days of cooking. thankfully it caved outwards

Reply

So not only useless, but really? $5 for 4 blocks. It’s all bollocks

Reply

Another stupid thing from ecosnippets….concrete block are not desing for heat..

Reply

Neat way to do some conservative cooking. I would like to suggest to the video folks that they use something to control the opening size where the fuel is burning. Doing so will help them keep from torching their tuna, or grilled cheese, or whatever was in that white bread failure. ?

Reply

Ugh, most cinder blocks are made with carcinogenic coal ash, this is not a smart thing to make for cooking.
