Looks like your oven has a "glow" coil. That being the case, you will not be able to light the oven without power. It has to glow to open the valve, and there is no override for this. Sorry.
About the cord, you could install a plug on the cord, or simply replace the cord. (I realize you say you are trying to get one). Other than this, turkey on the grill is always good.

Put a torch on the probe. If the flame comes on them the thermocouple is weak.If nothing at all replace the safety valve.That is if you have a standing pilot. If you pilot is an electric one then it should be so bright it is hard to look at but if it is dim orange it is weak.

Tips for a great answer:
We get asked this question many times.
If you light your pilot light, hold in the button and then when you release it and the pilot light goes out, generally you need a new thermocouple. Gas repairs can only be undertaken by a qualified gas technician so you can't do this job yourself.
The thermocouple is a safety device that recognises that the pilot has a good flame and is enough to ignite the main burners. The thermocouple open that valve to the burner.
In limited circumstances the thermocouple doesn't need replacing, either the shield that aims the flame to the thermocouple has become dislodged, or the pilot jet is a little blocked by debris. Either way, having the appliance serviced by a qualified gas fitter is the way to go. I am sure you will have seen news stories about explosions caused by gas leaks and faulty appliances.
