Re: LPG vs diesel for heat / hot water / stove
Yea biggest issue with any of the Dickenson diesel stoves is that it is only going to be usable in the winter, in the summer it is going to give off way to much heat into the cabin even in Alaska or Maine. I used to know a lady who had a beautiful Waterford Coal stove that made awesome bread and long cooked casseroles, but even in the winter her kitchen was 90 degrees, summer time with windows open you could not stand to be in there if she decided she wanted to make some bread in it. Oh but the steel cut oatmeal that had cooked overnight on it, that was good stuff! She always had a bowl of it for me when she knew I was coming. She had a second stove she used most of the non winter months.
