    I don't think a single burner cast iron propane stove would get you hot enough. I did that with my Charcoal burning GOSM vertical. Works pretty darn good. Possible a double burner would work if you can get the measurements for one??

    Great news. I am in the same situation. Exactly where and what did you buy?

    Where did you buy your stuff? Also I plan to do the same thing with my OKJ. I am planning on using a thick cast iron pan and use wood chunks. I am wondering on the quality of the bark I will be able to get. I also plan on trying wood pellets as well. I do not think though I will use water in that pan I will use a separate pan.
