    Old tin stove ID

    Old tin stove up in our barn . It must be for outdoor use ,because there is no stove pipe outlet .It only weighs about 12 pounds . The tea kettle fits snuggly in the insert . Could it be a Smoker or an early Charcoal grill ? Maybe for a boat ? Camping ? Or maybe the farmer brought it down in the field to keep his lunch warm? Any ideas ?

    Re: Old tin stove ID

    If used as a cook stove, even outside you would think it would be vented. A smoker of some sort
    could be the answer but then why the kettle, it wouldn't appear to be an effective way to heat water
    but it does appear to be a good "fit".(maybe to wet wood in waiting to produce more smoke? )

    Haul it outside, fill the kettle, fire it up and see how effective it is in heating water. (joking)

    Cool piece, heading out to a back forty dump, i`ll look more for an answer when i get home.

    I wonder if the two metal loops are there to facilitate carrying the stove--like a backpack.

    They were light weight so it can be carried deep in the forest in older days ,by wood cutters.Thats why you have the 2 loops on the top,you would slide a wooden pole in it and carry it away.
    To dig or not to dig.....that is the question!!

    Re: Old tin stove ID

    It looks like more of a 'smoker' than a stove but is there any chance it's not either?
    WAG, incubator, chicken warmer moderate the temperature with warm water in the kettle

    I looked into some of those idea`s as well, even thought maybe something along the lines of a
    branding iron heater, with the absence of any real cooking surface or chimmney its hard to pin
    this one down.

    Any chance its home built?

    WAG-Perhaps an oven, rather than a stove. Intended to be placed over or next to a fire/coals. The "stovepipe" seems to be vented through the bottom; it could be filled with coals to heat the oven and the kettle.

    Re: Old tin stove ID

    I'm thinkin a chuck wagon or covered wagon stove/warmer . Fill with hot coals to keep food and coffee warm on the trail.

    i think this object is an oven, that sets upon the stove. that would explain the lack of ventilation.
