We got our antique wood cook stove home today and used it the whole day. We processed chickens, heated water, cooked coffee and even our dinner on this stove today.
This is a Dixie V wood cook stove with four burners, a griddle, oven and water heater. It is wood fired and can also heat your home.
This one needs some new sheet metal due to mice having a nest inside which then ate through the metal. But otherwise it is in decent shape.
I plan to clean it up and see how long it burns with a load of wood. If it burns all night then it will go into the off grid tiny house. If not then it will have a permanent home in an outdoor kitchen.
Right away I got a fire going to burn it clean inside and out. It had been sitting a long time and was dirty.
We put a pot of water on to boil and then used that to help process three roosters which we had extra.
Then later I put on a percolator to brew up some coffee for Melanie and myself.
Melanie prepared a dutch oven full of mostly foods from our own homestead which I then put on the stove to slow cook the rest of the day.
We had to leave for a few hours to pick up a friend at the bus station. We got back late, about 8:30 pm to find our dinner nice and hot. It was good.
We plan to use this antique wood cook stove heavily on the homestead.
