Apartment Sized Wedgewood for Our Outdoor Kitchen

Those of you who have been following for a while will remember that I found our Oasis trailer (which turned into half of the Art Shack Micro House) while perusing the Craig's List posts for a propane stove for my dream outdoor kitchen.
Well, it didn't happen fast. What has it been, like 2 years? But I finally found the stove I had been searching for!

Although I was lucky enough to get this sweetie for under a $100, it did need a lot of fiddling with.
The "Brand new" gas regulator hose was faulty and had to be replaced - $15 at the store.

The burners are very deluxe but need a thorough cleaning to get the inner ring to light.

The oven was way too hot, so I adjusted it. The fine tune adjuster is just under the chrome cap of the oven knob.

 The burners were burning yellow, which is caused by a poor mix of gas and air.  Aside from the fact that this will not heat efficiently, it will also cover pan bottoms with a thick black soot that gets on everything.

 I adjusted the air ratio by opening these air vents.
Which resulted in a nice clean blue flame.

Now for the real test, the Reluctant Homesteader Cookie in the Wilds test.

Supervised by Homestead cookie expert Mr.J
With just a little hovering I got a nice golden batch of Macadamia White Chocolate Cookies.
Mr.J says "Well done! Now give 'em to me."

  1. You are so intelligent! Most would not know how to make the adjustments and fixes you did! I will have to see the little place one day!
