    Use a Hard wood log with a rot whole (or drilled if your that ambitious) soak it for a day then set if directly on top of a already burning fire. we used it to melt glass, aluminium by the end of a week we had huge piece of melted glass an aluminium at the bottom an that log lasts hours so long as you make sure it is wet an also works better if you set some sort of burnable platform to sit on an... it was my rocket stove before I even knew what one was lol

    The roll of paper would be much effective if the bottom end was covered. Because the airflow went to opposite direction the heat go as well

    This video itself should be conclusive enough to debunk any and every 9/11 conspiracies. Heat and temperature use two different measurements. BTU's matter more than burning temperature.
