Cooktop for Permanent Shack

Recommended Posts

For those of you who like to do a little cooking inside your permanent shack, here's a little project that I did in my house.

The cooktop is a cast iron, 1 burner cooktop that is available at Cabela's. Best part is it is only $24.99

This stove is designed to be portable so I had to do a little modification to make it a permanent installation in my ice shack.

The first step was making my own legs for the stove out of small pieces of conduit. The legs that came with the stove are cast iron and really put the burner up in the air. I wanted the burner a lot closer to my countertop and also permanently attached.

The conduit legs also allowed me to use long (4 1/2") carriage bolts to attach the cooktop to the countertop. The bolts pass through the conduit legs and act as spacers. The bolts are then secured with nuts on the bottom of the countertop.

The other thing I was concerned about was grease splattering, and spilling onto the counter. My solution, although not cheap, was a small piece of diamond plate aluminum underneath the stove. Hey, it functions and looks cool too! I have one more piece of diamond plate I'm going to attach to the wall as a backsplash that has not been done yet.

I then just connected the cooktop to the propane lines in my house with soft copper tubing and flare fittings.

Mmmmm... I can smell the bacon & eggs already!

Why isn't there fish in a fry pan in the picture grin.gif. That is the only thing I know that I would do to improve it.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
