Solid heater, easily able to get over 8 hour burns (on low) with stove top still holding around 400. Top loading allows you to stuff it full for up to 12 hour burn times. The ash system allows you to keep the stove running 24 -7 without having to shut it down for cleanout (when you add wood in the morning just use a shovel to turn the carcoal and drop the ash between the grates and into the large ash pan.) The grill option is a must have for this stove as it allows you to grill over the heat no matter how cold it is outside. From the door it slopes inward to help elivate the issue that some stoves have of everything falling out when you open the door.
A little finicky to get its re-burn chamber active. The flue and the stove must reach a certain temp before it activates and burns efficiently. This sometimes takes a while to get the 525 pound monster hot depending on how cold you let the stove get. But, once you here the roar you get easily obtain 8 hour burn times.
Overall I am very satisfied with the stove. I am happy that once I get the re-burn chamber activated I can get 8 hour burns with little effort and no middle of the night feedings. I would recommend this stove to a friend.
