not enough wood if i was there.
i'll drop you off there tomorrow and you can make the pie higher.*
i only burn the wood.
Theres probably another 2 or 3 winters of firewood in there for you to burn. There is another pile of 40 foot logs off to the left of this photo. I usually cut those ones into 6' lenghts and haul em off to cut em up and split later. The whole area was about 3-4 acres of pretty dense 40-50 foot hardwood and poplar that was clearcut a few years ago to make way for a pond.*
yeah. saw the logs. that will do me. grandpa had lots left over when he passed. god i miss that wood stove.pansypoo
but wasn't that a cook-stove? (as opposed to a heat stove). *
the early 1900's wood/gas stove at the family cottage. never ran gas. but boy oh boy i used that stove.memories growing up waking up to grandpa cleaning the ashes out to build a fresh fire.
Yup, I hear ya. My great grandmother had one of those big old Sterling stoves in her kitchen when i was a little bastard. Lots of those houses had coal stoves in them too. And I used to live in an old farmhouse that had one of those 1930s wedgewood style cook stoves hooked up to a propane tank. It was pretty cool but it wasn't very big and the oven on it was really small so it wasn't very practical. But it looked cool. Plus I have an old Vermont Castings woodstove and was thinking of converting it into some kind of outdoor wood cook stove grill type thing. Was gonna do it this summer but never got around to it. *
i have pictures of the stove somewhere. and see similar ones on ebay. my aunt + uncle were letting it rot for not using it cause they are 'hot' people. now living with another branch of the family being USED.
You can buy em brand new too. Updated for the modern kitchen but they look just like the old ones.*
cast iron? cause i am using my old cast iron pans more.
steel, enamel, porcelein etc... i think. the place where i got my woodstoves carrys different kinds. i was oooing and ahhhing over one last time i was there but it was pretty expensive as i recall. place called Elmira Stove Works out of Canada makes them (see: elmirastoveworks dot com) makes a wood burning model too called the Fireview. i kinda like the old Roper stoves (kind of restaurant style gas stoves) that have 8 burners and 2 ovens and a broiler. Cook up a shit-storm with one of those hot bitches.*
cast iron?what were you using before?i always use my 2 black cast iron fry pans. and a steel fry pan for hot searing .. and a steel sauce pan... and a steel enamel dutch oven for melting down things like tomato gravy, and a alumin pot for blanching and steaming. those are the only pots and pans ya need for most anything. i think. and a round steel enamel pot i use for deep frying too.I cook on gas because i like it best for heat control.*
steel, but i made fajitas in the cast iron and sweet & sour chicken in my cast iron. with fraking, i think i want a electric stove.i think i'd want the old cast iron wood stove. a reconditioned one. or i see them once in a while at estate sales.ppoo
what do they get for em at estate sales? i noticed that a lot of the old ones for sale are reconditioned antiques.*
depends. i haven't seen them in a while but a plain newer one under $100. once saw a beautiful victorian extra nice one i think was under $300.and had been in constant use.
$100-300? Really? Jesus. I see people selling restored antique ones for 3-6-8 thousand.*
see, estate sales rock. but haven't seen a stove in years.
damn, i guess so. but i guess if you can get em that cheap and restore em and resell em for big $ they probably get bought up by antique dealers pretty quick.*
not really, but they do get bought i think. dealers here are kinda stupid if i can find stuff on the last day.
