OFF TOPIC.......woodbrning sookstove question : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I just bought a Tennessee Cook Stove which burns wood. It is in pretty good condition but I need a few parts. Anyone that has information about these type of stoves, where I can purchase parts, and any web sites that have recipes cooking with wood, I would appreciate you sharing.

I don't know anything about that brand of stove, but I would look first to Cumberland Country Store right there in TENN. They have a web site.

Got grates?

Try for various companies. Also go to and doing a search for catalytic burner will turn up some stove parts companies.

WHAT?! You've never heard of a brning sookstove on here before? Gees!

Just as Robert Cook. I bet he's bought one already. It's used to brn-off the duct tape that get stuck on orphaned red socks.

I don't know anything about your particular wood cook stove but I have been cooking with a Stanley by Waterford wood cook stove for the last 10 years. The trick is to learn how to direct your heat to the "burners" and the oven is a bit slower than an electric, but they bake wonderfully. You can use most any recipe you regularly cook with, it's just a matter of practice. My stove is also plumbed into the hot water heater. If you do this, you have to have water in your system at all times, but when the power is off, you have hot water. Be sure that you have a pressure release valve in case the water gets too hot. My folks valve went off once and they ended up with boiling water down their walls. Now my Mom washes or runs the dishwasher after the stoves been on a while or switches the valve off so it goes to electricity (hardly ever happens!). Enjoy your stove!

You're right, Chris, my mistake. I thought Linda was asking about sood-brning sookstoves.

-- Elbow Grease (, March 08, 1999.

Thank you all for the answers to my sook stove questions.

Now, if she gets a hole in her woodbrning sockstove - does she repair with steel wool? Or polyanna-impregnated fiberglass?
