    Our wood/coal cook stove is out in our pole barn. Waiting to put it in the summer kitchen but I won’t even think about starting it until lumber prices come back down to earth.

    My wife and I are a couple of millennials that just got a wood cook stove put in the basement. We’re excited to get cooking but don’t quite know where to start.

    Anyone have suggestions on a food to make that will encourage a good first experience? Eager for simple recipes and instructions.

    We cook exclusively on wood. Start with soups, chili and stews. Easy not turn burn. We make all the normal foods. You’ll get it, takes a little practice

    Good for you all having a wood cook stove, think it is verry important to have a heat source and able to cook with.

    Always have water on, love the press and percolater. Weekend try to make a special meal, still simple home cook meal. Cornbread is a cood idea, hmmm can already smell it. Oe home made pizza, think the man will enjoy that.

    We have a Kitchen Queen wood cook stove. In Northern Michigan it’s our only heat source, keeps us toasty. Can hold a fire all night, sometimes 12 hours. It has a nice sized oven, I cook any and all food on it. It also has the stainless steel water tank on the back and is my only source of hot water in the kitchen. It’s made heavy duty and to last, amazing stove, I love it.

    I would say soups on the stove top, roasts in the oven. Your temperatures don’t have to be precise, and ‘low and slow’ is a good thing.

    We have a wood cookstove in our living room. It has allowed us to cut heating costs of propane from using gas stove. We have cooked breakfast like eggs, ham, sausage and bacon on the top as well as veggies. In the oven I have made bread, stuffed peppers, garlic bread, meatloaf and many other items.
