aka clay stove.

Found this little monster at a Viet grocer in St. Pete, FL. Have since spied them in two other sizes at Viet grocers West Palm and Lauderdale Lakes.

It looks pretty similar to the improved Lau bucket stove pictured online.

The No. 2 size bucket I have been using is about 12" across the top. It is a clay lined galvanized bucket, with 3 standoffs on the top to allow combustion gases to vent. Wide slot at the base for combustion air and stick feeding. Basically a third world wood/charcoal stove for cooking your family's rice on.

Can use charcoal above the built in grate, or burn sticks below it. No charcoal starter needed, couple of sheets of newspaper under grate gets it going.

Have been using it:
with a cast iron grate for steaks, burgers;
under a wok;
with a 13"x5/8" kiln shelf as pizza stone to pre-cook pizza shells;
as an outdoor fireplace.

A fine piece of kit for $17.99.

I've been looking for one of these, and expect to find them on the net but can't.


Any referral to a seller is much appreciated.

I just bought one (used it for the first time today) at a local Asian supermarket in Dallas so they are around. Found this as I was looking for info on them:

Looks like it'll be fun.
