Is it possable to convert an antique wood stove to use propane and wood ? How easy is it to regulate your oven temp. with wood ? Don't know if my wife :mad: would like wood for cooking, so the propane might seem better in the summer. If I try this, I would go to a countertop built in cooking burner fot the summer. Any thoughts, THANKS!!!

Some of the old coal/wood cooking stoves had gas side arms.
It was a combo of the two that made them nice for summer cooking.
The stoves have been converted to kero or gas in the past just need to find someone who still does that work.
You may be better off buying a stove that has already been converted.
