Likes: Well built, nice looking.

Dislikes: Very sensitive to chimney height 15\' not enough, wood moisture content and wood size (prefers small splits).

Comments: I have 15\' of straight chimney and that is marginal; get smoke rollover when door is open and log placement is critical due to minimal draft. Burns excellent when wood is below 20 % moisture content and smaller splits are placed to ensure air gap between logs.
