how to bake bread on wood stove : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I would like some information on bakeing bread on a wood stove or on my propane gas stove top. Does anyone know of some kind of oven that can function on these surfaces.

Get a stovepipe oven. Uses waste heat that goes up the stovepipe to bake bread. Neat little gimmick.

I saw a picture of a stove pipe oven in a Time-Life book on fireplaces, but haven't been able to locate one. I've searched through many woodstove sites, and called around here locally, but haven't even found anyone who knows what one is.

Where should I be looking?

For cooking in or on a fire, get a Dutch Oven. It is heavy cast iron, sold by Boy Scout type outlets or camp stores. You can also get a folding metal box type stove at camp stores. It sets on the burner to form an oven type cooking tool.

This is a good site for two ovens which could be used inside or out

Rocky, Lehman's sells a portable oven that fits over one burner on a Coleman stove. (11 5/8" sq x 12 1/2" H) It weighs 9 lbs and is $65. Check sporting goods stores to compare prices.

Cabela's has a coleman camping oven 12x12 sits on a burner 39.99 or they have the one that fits on the stovepipe for 259.99 Item # for camping oven hj-51-0725 chimney oven hj-22-2073-732 phone #1-800- 237-4444. I just ordered the camping oven and they said are back ordered for the end of Oct. Good Luck!

The Coleman camping oven SHOULD be available at Target, Walmart, Super K, Valu City, or a camping outfitter.

the easiest breads to make are quickbreads that don't require yeast. try cooking them in a castiron skillet with lid. this will work nicely on top of any kind of stove, also works well over a fire when camping.

I can stretch a buck farther than anybody I have ever heard of. It cost me $.35 to solve that problem. I picked up a convection oven free at a garage sale and a oven thermometer for $.35 at another sale. All the stuff for the oven is in the top with the floor of the oven just sheet metal. Cut off cord, set on top of wood stove and watch thermometer to adjust fire. It works the same way a coleman camp oven does but is the cadillac version of camp ovens!

Ouch - you have shot me down as far as an internet link goes. Lehmann's carried them a few years back I think (could be thinking about Cumberland General - see below) - don't know if their paper catalog still has em or not. I know an outfit called Cumberland General Store (I think) used to have them - about 5 years back if memory serves. They used to be pretty common back in KY depression era and earlier - my mother told me some of her relatives had them.

I might try an old hardware store that sells wood stoves. Go to one in a rural area - you'll probably find someone who knows what you are talking about.

By the way - here is a nice link on bread making

they cover some pretty old ways to do things.

Make english muffins, they're fried not baked. They can be made with sourdough or yeast. They keep really well.
