    2.8 CF, almost the same size but is not identical to the princess. Less pollution but less efficiency. Not sure the exact differences.

    I just got a reply to my inquiry from BK Canada. They say the Sirocco 30 will be unveiled at the Florida trade show in March with production to start in May or June.

    Thanks for that VE8EV.
    Just weighed a normal overnight Oak split and got 5.2 lbs., and I can get between 8-10 splits of that size in my stove right now. That's approx. 40-50 lbs. and the sirocco 20 says it holds 45 lbs. of White Oak and the S-30 holds 58.
    The big problem I have with my stove is controlling it during an attempt at low burn. It really doesn't like running below 500 without gunking up the flue. Too much in the SS.
    My old Ashley has been doing pretty well until the temps get to about 0-5::F or below, then it struggles to keep up.
    So, this tells me I need a larger firebox capable of holding more wood for the few days when it gets super cold, and that also has the ability to burn low and slow during less severe weather. Or, that it can burn at 600 for longer than 2 hours or so (my current situation).
    I keep talking myself into a BK instead of an E-30, unless the E-30 is also that controllable.
