What Makes a Propane Stove Smoke?
How Propane Stoves Work A propane stove is a cooking device normally used to prepare food at campsites and other locations where the stove’s portability is convenient. The stove is powered by a tank or canister filled with propane, which is normally a gaseous fuel but can be compressed into a transferable liquid. Propane is produced both by natural gas processing and crude oil refining. The stove works by transferring propane up to the stove via hose and mixing it with air. By adding a spark or a small flame like a lighter, the stove creates a larger flame that can be controlled by adjusting the propane level up or down. The flame resides under a grate, which is where the food is placed. The food is then cooked on the grate using heat from the flame that is fueled by the propane. Propane stoves are generally safe when they are used properly, but they can malfunction. There are several scenarios that could cause them to smoke.
