Likes: My first stove. Very easy to run. Load it up with wood at night and 8-9 hours later I have a full bed of coals to start a new fire with. Looks great, have had many compliments.
Large fire box. Ash dump nice feature.

Dislikes: I've run out of dry wood :(

Comments: Must watch during first hour of lighting if using very dry wood. Will heat up fast. With a little more practice I'm sure I can get 1-2 more hours out of it.I'm still learning, I've only had it a month, I make two fires a day. I would never get a smaller fire box.
