Today I found myself bribing myself with a stunning 1800's wood cook stove...

Is there any way to 'cylinder' (abused here as a verb) biogas or would that be too expensive? I'm thinking of that large, unsustainable hog CAFO industry in your state and whether or not the state universities there working with that industry ever tapped the biogas from the manure pits. It's clearly not an ideal source, but maybe a containering/delivery technology has been investigated there that could be a benefit down the road for yours and other's gas cook stoves ..(?)....

It of course depends on how long and much you cook on the stove, but the average usage is only what, 30kg of gas per year? And that brings you a very efficient, clean burning flame that provides you precise, on-demand heat. Firing up the woodstove just to bake a couple of eggs in the morning doesn't seem really efficient to me. I don't have the numbers right here so the calculation might be a bit off, but from the top of my head burning a kilo of lng produces about 3-4kilo of CO2. The average tree removes about 20kg of CO2 from the atmosphere, so if you planted about 4-5 trees per year you'd be carbon neutral in your cooking.
Also, so mayonnaise doesn't come in glass jars in the US?
