wood stove

  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    It’s been getting down into the 40’s at night around here. Today I ran through the last of the kerosene that I had in a kerosene torpedo heater that was there since last winter. It reminded me to check my other back up heaters. Bugs love propane and propane heaters. Had some in my new to me...

    So I have an old wood stove\furnace in the basement of my 1858 New Englander house that I was wondering if I could re-use upstairs to heat a space of about 400 sq. ft. Last year I replaced the 50-year-old boiler (yeah, you heard right) with a new boiler and even got a new oil tank. All these...

    The land lord said my fire place is non functional but I am thinking they meant for actual fires since the flue doesnt seem to be there. It seems to have a stove pipe non rigid liner with an inch of insulation the end has the piece to hook up to a wood stove but behind thst end the masonry is...

    Okay, so after much research and a lot of advice from people on this forum, we have decided to go the route of a wood stove, as opposed to a fireplace or insert. This is a very big investment for us so I want to make the right decision before just going out and getting one. Now the question is...

    My new long term survival cooker is very functional and durable. This wood fired cooker will cook 35 kg of beans, or pasteurize 35 liters of water. It will heat bath, laundry or kitchen water and you can actually do laundry and dishes in the 40 qt pot. It will cook breakfast items or fry 3.5...

    Last night I was attempting to break the spot welds on the obtrusive handle of my old faithful 14oz GSI cup so it would nest in my new addition GSI 18oz cup/pot. Needless to say the surgery was not a success and "a holy cup does not a water molecule contain". Well since I had my cook kit out I...

    So lets see em. Lets see your complete cook kit. Not linked pictures but actual pictures of your complete cook kit. That includes, stove (whether it be wood, gas or alcohol), pot set, bowls/canteens and mugs, and utensils that you use. And lets not judge one another's kits because we all have...

    ...and I've been collecting firewood from wherever I can get it for free. I got a bunch today from a buddy of mine who is a farmer and was cleaning up his fencelines this week. He had a bunch of oak, hickory and box elder. I read somewhere that box elder wasn't the best for an inside wood...

    I want a modern, wood-burning stove. But, I want to be able to cook on it if that turns out to be a good idea. What's out there? The little bit of looking I've done so far hasn't turned up anything.

    Here is my take on the perfect ammo can tent stove. http://youtu.be/H1wTzqVHUQU (Sorry didn't yet write more. Unlike others, I don't do the little buttons on my phone too well with my banana hands)

    http://e-goodstove.blogspot.com/ Stumbled across this today. Figured it might help folks who aren't in an area with an abundant wood supply, or who would prefer a more efficient solution than a traditional cast iron wood cookstove. While the concept of building something like this out of cow...

    http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/hsh/2318792603.html Never heard of it, and I can't seems to find any reviews on "Earthstoves". I'm looking for something inexpensive. What do you think? thanks again

    I live in apartments now, so this is obviously not an immediate objective. The move is however, not far away and I am more in the mindset of acquiring as many "goods" as I might need in a long term off grid situation. I assume a wood burning stove would be an enormously sought after item in a...

    I'm looking for an alternative heat source for home. What would the average cost be of filling a 25 or 100 pound propane bottle? I haven't filled one in decades. Which best? Propane or wood burner?

    I searched and I can't find the instructions on how to build a wood burning stove from an old hot water heater. Can someone please post a link? Thanks in advance.

    I was looking online this morning for an oven that would sit on top of a woodstove, or even plans for making one, and ran across the Grover Oven. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200544623320&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT It looks pretty awesome to me and I wanted to share with...

    I just recently installed a wood stove in my house, which has been a goal for a while now. I have heard you can cook on these stoves, but mine is fairly small as it is one of the new efficiency stoves. Not a lot of room on top to put a pan to cook on. Then I had a thought, what about getting...

    I am building a small cabin and I would like some suggestions on a wood burning stove to cook and on and heat with. I am in Middle Georgia and it will only be 900 sq.ft. so heat control is important so we don't get run out of the house with heat. I am also looking for a Solar kit that will run...
