I  have this pot belly stove in our kitchen, have never used it to cook on.

How would I get the bread brown and the pork crackling crispy, I would not be able to put heat beads on the top.

Would stews be the only thing to cook.

In the winter it is going all morning so maybe I should use it.

Top heat is what gets your cakes, damper etc brown and your crackling crispy. Your little potbelly is good for stews, casseroles and open the lid and do jaffles.
 

When I die I hope my missus doesn't sell my camp ovens  for what I told her I paid for them. pd

Hi Norweb
Had the same pot belly stove back in the 80's it was made with a masport brand they called it a "Fatso"
Was a great stove for cooking and really good for heating the large lounge we had. Good for a Queensland winter
I hope you have fun with it.
regards  Kevvie  (Kev) Cheesy

The stove is an Oregon by Masport, It is the smaller one. It came with the house when we bought it.

I also have a large fireplace in the living room which is 6ft long and 4ft to the mantle piece, the previous owner did cook with the camp oven in this fire place. When we bought the house there was a lovely mat in front of the fire place did not think to lift it up as the wife was so excited.

When we move in I then found out why the mat was there burn holes in the carpet.

Also in my studio I have another fire place, lucky I have friend who lets me  get firewood from his acerage.

Looks like stews this winter.

Good morning Norweb
I hope have many winter meals on your stove.
When I had my stove I lived on acreage I also had a ute and prior to winter I would stock on free fire wood from a demolition yard. I now have a "Kings"stove that stays in the caravan for when we go away. I  recently went to the big green shed and got some  "High temp enamel"paint  which I am going to stray on my stove
Regards  Kev (Kevvie)

Cook out side and just let it simmer inside for other meals.

This was two weeks ago at Loxton, SA. Lamb shanks staying warm while the room is warming up. Cheers

Any slow cook or wet dish.
Heating and cooking in one package.
How good is that.

We had a Fatso for years. I cut the legs of a 12” camp oven and cooked so many dinners on it, Corned beef to stews. The Pot belly is long gone now but I am still using the camp oven today.
