I'm New

Hey, hello, I am new here and I don't have a electric or gas stove, I live in Grampop's hunting cabin and I have Internet by satellite and elctricity but the stove is woodstove.
I'm hoping to find some help on a woodstove.
Happy New Year !

Oh thank you all. I have figured out how to make meat loaf and a roast but I want to make more stuff. I made the fire pretty constant I guess, but it was hard doing it. Is there a better way? I raised the heat from the fire to the desired temp and I haven't died yet from my stuff, but I am afraid to say I don't know what I'm doing here and I do need some help.

Oh, and Larry --
I use a meat thermometer and build the fire to the right heat, which is 350. That was my meat loaf.
I did a roast and built the fire to 400. I put my boston butt in there and kept the temp up to over 400 and it was good, but I need help. All of this was guesswork. Guessing does not work well with cooking.
