    Wood Stove Cookin'


    Anyone who has a wood stove has the ability to prepare meals with their stove. I picked up this old fireplace ‘arm’ from a company that went out of business 15 years ago (you can find similar items on the net or could easily fashion one yourself in your shop). I can hang pots from it or use it to roast or grill. I had a buddy weld up a base for it and I screwed it into my hearth. Very, very sturdy. When I’m done with cooking I can just swivel it to the side or slip the arm out of the base and remove it completely.


    The ‘arm’...


    The base...


    Cornbread and Baked Potatoes (both staples...LOL!)


    The beef goes in...


    Fresh Cornbread!


    The beef comes out...


    Baked Potatoes, Beef Steak and Corn Bread
    it works for me!


    Remember, at least these three things:
    1. You don't need alot of coals to cook in a wood stove.
    2. Everything will cook faster than you are accustomed to.
    3. Always keep fire extinguishers nearby.

    my uncle ryan (who lives 50 miles from any civilization... he's rather insane) recently learned how to bake bread with his wood stove. he has just a regular old wood stove, it looks like....well... your typical cabin wood stove.

    he's also made pizza, cake, and roast beef over his stove. poor bloke has too much time on his hands, but MAN is he ever a good cook!

    you two, aside from the insane mountain man part, have alot on common!

    [​IMG] Now that is a whopper of a steak!

    I love to cook things over the campfire but never attempted to bake pies or bread in a dutch oven yet. I am a CW reenactor and I think my "boys and girls" would appreciate homemade bread cooked over the coals. the only problem I have is, the park or the host of the events would bring over GREEN wood. Quite smokey!
