    I'm right there with ya bro........... Impatiently waiting.....I ordered the Ashford also in brown enamel a couple months ago.
    Hoping this next batch comes out good . I know Blaze King is working hard to make this right.

    You made the right choice on stoves by picking the Ashford......I have had a Blaze king and a PH , You are right about the long time it takes to heat up a PH......For you it would cook you out of your house and you wouldn't get the long burn time .

    You are perceptive about seeing through someone who has been drinking the kool-aid too much and is rather drunk ....lol

    Speaking of that, something I noticed about the Cape Cod the other day nobody seems to talk about (surprisingly), is the fact the glass goes almost all the way to the bottom of the stove. This gives you great visibilty of the ENTIRE burn, not just the top of the logs and upper flames as with most stoves. You can see the entire bottom of the red hot logs glowing..... with the flames up above. I think it's a great stove if your looking for the "show".

    At the decathlon the Cape Cod was a visual favorite and crowd pleaser. They had a nice blaze going most of the time.

    Maybe true, but I think this might be a major problem for anyone who intends to heat with that stove. I have enough trouble with hot coals spilling out of my Jotul when I open it once per day, and that has a good 3" of space below the door. There have been past comments about the lack of firebox depth (vertically, below door sill) in the Cape Cod.

    Yea, hadn't thought of that "small detail". I'm used to having the side door to open, not the front glass door. ;) Maybe they should make a side load version of the cod instead?

    Personally I think it should be a law that all stoves that are primarily e/w loaders should have a side door==c

    Although I like side loaders, I've never once wished that my Cape Cod had a side door. I think it depends on the width of the firebox and the size of the door. It's easy with a 22" wide door!::-)

    I have plans for a Blaze King, hopefully next winter (I know, I know, my 2100 has less than 6 months use.... lol) I have to see what kind of deal I can get on them before I decide. The 2100 is working but I think it would be LESS work with the longer burn times a Blaze King provides.

    Before I ended up going with an insert I searched for a medium sized stove with a side door. The selection was a lot smaller than you might think.

    That's a possibility. I'm running the Cod right now and I gotta say, it sure burns nice! It's a hard decision to make.

    Do you think an Equinox would heat my 800 square foot area?
    A Brown Firelight would be sweet! Or a brown Ashford! Maybe I'll just hold out for the New BK Hartford?
