What stove is that? Looks like the same surround as my Osburn 1600. Nice hearth! I wish mine was raised like that to save my knees.
I get up at.. 4.30 to 5am. plenty of time to relax enjoy something warm.. talk.. she doesn't get up that early.. but early enough to have us time...You guys talk? That is so grown up...I wonder if we'll ever get to do that again . The kids basically dominate everything these days lol.
My mom grew up in Vermont and used to heat soapstone on the stove for us to use as footwarmers in bed. We brought the custom to Texas. Each child has a rock from our backyard (which is landscaped with river rock) that he or she can warm up in front of the ash lip and take to bed.I cook on the top of my stove (occasionally in it) a lot. But tonight is going to be quite cold, so I heated a brick for the kids to use as a bed warmer. I got the bricks up to about 300 F and wrapped them in a towel. Kids love them.
What you can’t see is the Dutch oven lid I put on the coals. Wait till it hits about 450. If it hits 800 and is still climbing crust will burn before the top side is cooked. I really like the pizza screen wood stove or oven.Looks great! I tried this but found I either under or overcooked the pizza. Plus, it I did taste like ash a bit.
I gathered some nice rounded stones from our property, mostly looks like Jasper type stone, and heated them for my wife last winter after her surgery. Very popular around here as well.I cook on the top of my stove (occasionally in it) a lot. But tonight is going to be quite cold, so I heated a brick for the kids to use as a bed warmer.
