Stuff to put on wood/coal/pellet stove to make the house smell good?

BTW, if you put the pan directly onto the stove and not on a trivet, then you could toss in a whole chicken, some seasonings, carrots, onions and celery, dutch noodles and have a nice soup and a damn fine smelling house. Wink

What's a trivet? I just stick my cast-iron pots and pans right on the stove. We cooked on it during the power outage, but it was only canned goods. I need to get a nice big, deep cast iron pot to do some real cooking. I yeah, and learn how to cook. Confused

I don't set my pot of water directly onto the stove because it'll come to a hard boil in no time, I put it on a trivet so the water comes up to about 130 degrees and evaporates from there. But I could cook right on the top if I didn't use the trivet.

Oh, you mean the water boils over if you don't use the trivet? I haven't had that issue, I apparently don't run my stove as hot as you. Usually at about 400-500 degrees. For some reason, I've never had water boil over at this temperature. It boils, but not like crazy.

I didn't say boil over, just a hard boil. I don't need that much moisture in the air, so I use the trivet so I don't get a hard boil, but just hot water that easily evaporates because the inside humidity is already low. A full day of burning and I might go through 1/2 gallon of water this way.

Ahhh, okay. I go through about 1/2 gallon of water every 4 hours or so. Maybe I should look into a trivet.

They can be had for cheap if you shop around.
Here's one of the lower priced models that's currently available:

You don't want that, I hear they're all made in Poland.

There's actually a place in St. Marys Pa. on Rt.255 (the Million Dollar Highway) going toward Weedville/Pennfield that has a real "Wood stove" on display.
I'll see if I can find someone to take a picture of it and send it to me.

That one was just a pic I found on the Internet.
