    My current house does not have any alternative heating options. It's all electric baseboard which for the size isn't too painful in the winters. But when the power goes out so does the heat. I have a small generator that will keep my appliances going but I need something for heating. I was...

    Lately I have had the past on my mind, namely propane lighting. In researching that period in history between non-electrical society and widespread electrical adoption when kerosine lanterns, candles and gas lights where more of a mainstay I have began to wonder how economical a modern house...

    Hey all, I just got the MSR pocketrocket for lightweight backpacking. Anyway, it uses small fuel canisters of IsoPro (Jetboil, MSR, etc). These are fairly light themselves, but I was curious about using the larger "green can" propane that you can buy at China mart are wherever. Has anyone...

    I've been a little surprised to learn how many folks are prepping for the future with a liquid or gas fueled stove for cooking. I do keep several of the white grill propane tanks stored, but that's for a short term event. For long term I have wood gas/biofuel stoves, but I'm open to other...

    Over the past few weeks we have been talking about spreading your survival gear purchases out over an extended period of time. Instead of dropping several hundred dollars at once, spend $20 here, $30 there, and after a few weeks you and your family will have a nice stockpile of survival gear...

    I know this question has been brought up a lot on here. But is it safe or not? I used my camp chef oven indoors for an hour with my carbon monoxcide detector right next to it. It detected nothing. I don't recommend anyone else do this! I figure I will get the "You're Gunna Die"...

    I have a question. After reading another thread about a camping stove / oven, it got me wondering. Is there a way to convert a standard natural gas stove in the house to run off a 20# propane tank after the SHTF? Are the burners too different to do this effectively or at all? Does anyone know...

    I'm googling around, and found a few items of interest, but I thought it wise to ask here before pulling the trigger. I'm looking for a good quality,dual burner propane stove, that's better than the little Coleman unit I have now. Something along the lines of this...

    I've been looking for info on this and can't seem to find any size or thread info... basically, in a pinch how easy is it to use a portable tank on a home oven?

    I have a coleman stove, propaine. It has two valves, one for each burner. There is no gas on/of on the connector to the bottle, just a preset regulator. Can I hook up a 25# cylinder (using the propper fittings)? The instructions say not to, but I cannot tell if that is a mechanical issue or...
