    Here is a good link for using a wood cook stove.. I used to have a cook book that had some of these tips in it for maintaining and using your cook stove, I do not seem to be able to locate that book any longer, so was delighted to run across these tips..

    Wood cook stoves are like wives, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Pick a stove you like, learn how to live with it and how to make it work best and enjoy a long and fruitful relationship.

    My family has been using wood cook stoves for a long time .
    I got this one from an antique store, many of the parts were missing so I had to do the best I could finding things that would fit . we used it for many years and moved it from home to home .
    When I fianally moved here from the mountains, alone, the poor thing had given it's all, and the tin was shot , so I rebuilt it with heaviner boiler plate and it again performs wonderfully. DSCN4200.JPG
    As you can see there is a dog leg in the stove pipe .
    This I have done every where we go because it helps the stove to operate more efficiently .
    I took the liberty of making adaptors for burning gas so I can continue to use it in the summer months with out heating the house up more .
    this is the wood splitter I made, that sits next to the stove.
