Canning questions

I was just given an 8 quart canner with accessories, jars, lids, etc. Does anyone can outside? We'd like to get something to do the canning outdoors to avoid heating up the kitchen. A turkey cooker has been suggested. My folks have offered their old propane grill with an "h" burner for

    Does anyone can outside? We'd like to get something to do the

    canning outdoors to avoid heating up the kitchen. A turkey cooker has

    been suggested. My folks have offered their old propane grill with an

    "h" burner for free. Any suggestions or helpful advice based on your

    experiences with this ?



    Thanks,

    My sister actually has a full size cook stove that was being stored

    on her front porch hooked up to the gas line. She cooks and cans on

    it. What you will need is a work area such as a table, and a heat

    source. I strongly recommend the Ball canning and preserving book.

    I have reciently started learning how to can. I have a glass top

    stove, so it takes much longer for the water to boil. A friend

    suggested doing it on the grill too on the side burner. I can't see

    why it wouldn't work. However, I just bought a pressure canner for

    those things you can't can with the water bath method and the

    instructions say to never do it outside on a grill. I can't imagine

    why. It's no different IMO than a gas stove. Any thoughts??? I may

    just try it anyway one day and see what happens.

    I think it might depend on the grill. If it's a gas grill then it would be no different. Maybe they mean a charcoal grill. You couldn't control the temp on a charcoal grill in order to shut it off at the right time. For safety reasons, they wouldn't want people carrying a heavy and very HOT canner to a nearby picknic or other outside table for cooling.

    the reason may be that propane hats at a VERY high temp. Much hotter

    than a gas stove. That may be the only reason I can think of.
