Yeah, those darn things seem to cause more grief than good. I just never have had good luck with them. I mostly rely on wooden matches myself. Besides wooden matches are much better at lighting wood fires the most cheap lighters.

Just came in from running the dog and filling the bird feeders. It's 7 below F with a 25 mph wind out of the west. Put me in the mind to read Robert Service The Heart of The Sourdough, and maybe Jack London To Build a Fire. Then warm up the oven and make some brownies. Cold afternoon on the cornfield.

I remember attending college in Iowa and walking around with a Pendleton shirt as a jacket. It was a dry cold as compared to the bone chilling dampness in the East and Great Lakes region. But I was not there at 7 below, that is cold, damp or not. Stay warm. I suspect the Spam froze and split the can... shame to waste such tasty food.

I found a no-fuel solution for that problem: and earlier version of Camco's Olympian GM12X Continuous Ignition Multi-Sparker
It works with any appliance that allows room to get the tip into the gas at the burner - I bought it for the furnace in my old trailer. The poor operation of butane lighters at low temperatures is also a non-issue with the electronic design. Unfortunately, mine was left with old batteries in it which leaked and ruined the contacts, so I'm back to butane until I get around to fixing or replacing the electronic one.

Love the stove!

I love to bake. Originally had problems with cookies, cakes and muffins burning in the middle of the pan immediately above the flame line. Perfect remedy is to purchase 4 unfinished clay 6x6 inch tiles from Home Depot or Lowe's. Then place together on the stove bottom above the flame line. No more problems! Would get the stove again in a heartbeat! I agree with the others that there is nothing better than hot, yummy things coming out of the oven on a chilly morning!

That make sense to me. A pizza stone would do the same thing (if the right size and proportions could be found), and could serve dual purposes. Of course, carrying stone (or similarly hefty materials) in a lightweight travel trailer is not an obvious choice...

some possibilities:
Bialetti® Pizza Stone (15"x14")
Emile Henry® Grilling/Baking Stone [ceramic] (13.5"x12")
Sparq Flatbread Pizza Stone [soapstone] (16"x12")
Bialetti Ceramic Pizza Baking Tiles (7.5"x7.5" each; use two of the set of four)

This is what I do to bake in my BBQ, works great. Keeps the excess heat outside too.

Having the oven in 3 of my trailers, I never used any of them.
