    I visited a local showroom the other day. They said that even though the Avalon 1190 has a bigger fire box, the difference between the BTU output of the Avalon 1190 vs. the 990/945 was minimal. They also suggested that the 945 would provide more radiant heat because it extends farther out onto the hearth. The 945 would also provide a larger cooking ledge. Do you feel the smaller 945 would be adequate?


    It's true that it provides as much heat as the larger one and more cooking area. The only downside is less wood capacity and therefore a shorter burn time. If you can live with this, it would be a great stove - probably one of my favorite stoves of all time.
