    that is outstanding heat,has got to be one great stove. my point for my situation is these bricks have made our life a little simpler and more comfortable with alot more heat from a small stove for a small cost as we've always had to buy some wood anyway, MERRY CHRISTMAS. oh stove still @225 and main house 65 with a not so cold 24 outside

    Stove is a Englander NC30 - key is wood is is down to 15% or less, Nothing wrong with the compressed blocks, lots of advantages, no bugs, easy to store, Very little mess to incur the wrath of the significant other., mostly decent heat output/time. Dis-advantages- got to buy them- then I would need a home exercise set up, yada yada. Have a great Christmas and New Year, Chris
