I love cooking on a simple wood stove! Whether it is cowboy coffee (boiled), pancakes (hot cakes, griddle cakes… whatever you call them!), fried eggs, grilled cheese sandwiches or what have you, the final result always seems to taste so much better!

Recall the old saying that one has “slaved all day over a hot stove”. Well, it needn’t even be all day to get quite warm! Otherwise, it makes using wood triple purpose: 1) warm up cutting/chopping it, 2) warm up burning it, and 3) cook your food in the process. Makes good sense to me!

Even a small stove works wonderfully!
