I've been offered a nice gas stove free by my father; needs some minor repairs (electrical part broken) that I should be able to do myself. It's a Kenmore and probably a $400-500 stove new. Five burner, and nice and sturdy. My house is electric and I've about killed the burners on my electric stove canning on them. They just can't take the weight. I'm thinking of setting this stove up outside for canning purposes -- building a shed for it. Is it possible to get a regulator that would let me run it off a BBQ 4 lb grill cannister or will I need to have a an actual propane tank brought in and set up? I'm NOT a fan of gas stoves in the house -- I like 'em to cook on, but I'm not sure I can get over the willies that the thought of propane in my house gives me. So I'd like to install it outside. (I've seen the results of a propane explosion. I've also experienced the headache that results from inhaling too much propane because of a leak, in a separate incident. Yow.) And having a stove outside would be a good thing during the summer, too ... my house is very small and when it's 110 degrees outside it heats up in a hurry if I try to bake anything. It'd save on the AC bill, too.
