So we have an All American Pressure Canner- its really big- a 941 I think. It doesn’t work on our stove. We need to set up an outdoor canning station- anybody have any recommendations for a burner (is that what it’s called? Something that uses propane and is basically a grill/stove) to use with this?
I saw somewhere that on the Prestos there’s a warning not to use anything over 12,000 BTUs - is this true for the All American? I can’t find anything about safely operating it with an outdoor set up 🤔 sorry if I’m more or less asking the same things over and over, I might be a tad bit terrified of this thing
when using a gas burner , you are adjusting it to hold the pressure at a certain point , I had a big stock pot on my camp stove 1 year for heating water to pluck a bunch of chickens , but have never put my presser canner on it , as I have not used it in years Suzanne

mainelady on a FB canning group they told me to get a 1/4 inch steel plate cut from a machine shop or metal working shop to put under the canner. My Camp Cheif two burner is 30,000 BTU's for each burner and is way to high. Don't turn the burner all the way up and use a metal shield to protect ALL types of canners. I have not used mine yet but will do so this summer. lew92 may be able to give you more pointers on this.
Just when I think I know everything about cows, my girls let me know that I don't know anything!
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.

mamacherri10: good afternoon! I have not been on the website in a long time. Have a new jersey milk cow and am looking to see how long she needs to be dried up prior to calving? She is due the third week of May.
