Using a Wood Burning Stove to Cook Off Grid
Using a wood burning stove to cook off grid is not as easy as many people would think! Sure, anyone could start a fire in the stove, put food into a pot or pan and heat it up but would it taste good? Will it be cooked enough so no one gets sick? There is a real skill involved!
To be clear, we’re not talking about cooking on top of a wood stove. Yes, it’s a stove and yes, you use a fire but this stove isn’t for heating the house. It’s an actual wood burning stove from the 1800s, styled for fires to be burning inside and coals moved around for baking bread and other goods. Imagine being in the deep south in summer, cooking over one of these inside!
Cooking off grid with one of these beauties would be a real lifesaver in a survival situation and though not many would ever get the opportunity to actually use one, the need for cooking off grid is significant! From a prepper point of view, being able to cook over a fire of any kind is a vital skill!
