pot too large for wood stove, now what?

I use large pots on the wood stove to heat bathwater in my cabin. Wanting to upgrade a 6 gallon pot, I bought two larger ones at an auction. Only to find my eyes were bigger than my stove surface and the pots I purchased are prrobably something like 20 gallons each! Only 60% of the larger pot fits on top of the stove, the rest would hang off the side. Wanting to avoid spilling 20 gallons of steaming water. Is there any way to make this safe? [more inside]

Woodstove problem

I just bought a new cast iron wood stove and have only had three fires in it so far. Everytime there has been a horrible chemical smoke that burns off of the body which I assume is the blackening ont he cast iron? It has been significantly less each time but will it eventually stop? Is there anything I can do to prevent this? Help!
