Wood stoves are pure awesomeness. If you are lucky enough to own one or are thinking about investing in one to save money and be more self reliant these great tips are for you.
When you start using a wood stove to heat your house, there is a sense of enjoyment and fear. I will explain. When I first used my wood stove I had it going perfectly fine for 2 or 3 weeks until I woke up to a room full of smoke!
I had a blockage in the flute and it was all my fault, I was using the wrong type of fuel. I went for the briquettes and not the wood I had readily available in my back yard. I learned from my mistake and now I have been using wood to heat my home for 3 years, no problems.
These 10 tips will keep your stove at its peak and give you more efficient heat… if you find this useful consider sharing with your friends.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
