Deal on the brownies and beer...the breakfast, lunch, and dinner of Champions!

Glad to hear the living arrangements are working out.

Try an unglazed piece of ceramic tile or a pizza stone... tile would probably be cheaper... mine was free (a few quarry tiles of leftover stock laying around my Dad's place). The thick clay tile will absorb the heat and evenly disperse it.

or like they did in mine two 1/2" sticks of square steel welded in, if you look at the pics of mine you might see them. i have not used it for cooking cause for one thing you can't get a 16" chicago pizza in it

smitty love the solar cells i just wish i had some of those

Honestly I don't think I'll be using the wood stove a lot anyway, which was why I built one instead of bought. If I were gonna winter somewhere I needed a constant heat supply, I''d have bought a nice little pellet stove (most likely).

lol, Lorna....most times the simplest solutions are overlooked...I nearly did that one, until I bought a new set of baking pans. It just happen to come with 2 new cake pans....the hamster started running in the wheel....and an idea was born

smitty i have a magic shef gas stove/oven that i cook with and that is what i cook the pizza in
