Rocket Stove now fully operational

Finally got the rocket stove working, seems there is a trick to getting them to light – the main chimney needs to be warm to draw air in through the side, so I put some burning newspaper in there, and that did the trick.

Not sure if I should cut the chimney down a little, bring the saucepan closer to the flame. I’ll see if I can find my hacksaw.
