Slightly OT:testing mini-prepsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Just need to burble a bit to folks who will understand: 1. Got the Ivanhoe kerosene stove working last night (got it last fall for $65- probably my best Y2K bargain so far). Heated a pot of turkey and noodles on it, then set the box oven on top and baked some cookies. Plenty of heat and no kerosene smell. 2. The Buff Orpingtons (chickens) I got in December are now big enough to make nice roasters- probably going to choke my first-ever chicken tomorrow. Wish me luck....

Good for you! It helps build my confidence in all the stuff I have tested as well. Nice seeing others test and mostly OK. I hadn't thought to use the box oven on the kero heater (I suppose eventually it would have dawned on me - hehehe). Thanks for your post.

dont choke them, make a large funnel out of some tin plate, drop them in head first, cut off the head and let them drain, no flopping no mess, when i lived in mexico this is what they did at the outdoor market, worked real well.

Al: That is, in fact, what I did. Made my killing cone out of a 1- gallon bleach bottle. Somewhere I stumbled across the phrase "chicken- choking" in reference to Voudoun or some other live-animal-sacrifice bunch, and liked the alliteration, that's all.
