Wood-fueled stoves required close attention and a practiced sense of timing.
Stoves were essential, and they required close attention and a practiced sense of timing. Wood-fueled stoves took time to heat up to cooking temperature, but an unwatched stove could (and did) start a catastrophic fire. Firewood could be difficult to find on the open prairies of the East Texas Blacklands, so people traveled to purchase wood for fuel or used smaller branches or scrap wood.
