    Here is the cooker we've used for more years than I care to recall. I grew up with one of these in the kitchen and have owned and used one ever since as the cooler weather permits. When I got married my wife took right to it. She is an expert. Today she roasted an excellent chicken in the oven. But now that I am on this site I expect to expand our cooking versatility even more.

    Nice stove... If I recall, they cook food that tastes better than electric or gas...

    Now there's a term I haven't heard in years. Grandma used to make the best "cat heads 'n paste."

    And if you remember, when grandma made cathead biscuits, she didn't know what a measuring cup was.
    they came out the same every time.

    Beautiful stove. My gramma used to put out some mighty fine food on one of these. And there was always lots of hot water fir Saturday night baths in the kitchen.

    I can't say I remember my Grandmother every using one of those stoves, but I remember her telling us stories of using a pot on a hook connected to the fireplace that swung in and out over the fire. I used to love hearing stories of her upbringing in Ireland. 7 kids, two bedrooms, and a thatched roof.

    I remember my grandmother using one of those stoves and the Ice Man coming....
  12. That does bring back great memories. I can close my eyes and go back 60 years and smell the fresh baked bread and spaghetti sauce cooking. Kitchen was hotter than blazes in August, but the food and wonderful aroma helped overlook it. Thanks for the post.

    One of those stoves was at my father's hunt camp in the 50's and 60's.
    I remember many fine fresh kill meals coming off that stove.
    I would love to have one but they are now priced way out of my budget.
    It would be a fine addition to the cook shed and sit right next to the Lang and BGE.
