    Hard to post from the phone but the heat is on here. Woodstock is holding first place for clean burning. The twin-fire for efficiency. I can tell you that you want to be careful where you place that stove. For a small stove it is hugely radiant.

    The twin fire cranks out a lot of heat?

    Oh yeah. Small firebox and shortish burn but you know when it cooking.

    Matt drove 3600 miles to demo his concept rocket stove in a more conventional form factor.

    This still in prototype stage but it will clear a 10 ft. Radius when fired. It's kind of hard to wear a Hearth.com sweatshirt when these puppies are fired up. Jason's Tremont that mellow provided is blowing away the judges. It recorded zero carbon monoxide yesterday. Not bad for an impromptu retrofit for a big ole dragon. More later, I need some lunch.

    What's this about? Which stove is that?

    The Woodstock stove looks pretty good in that pic, but god, those accessories are killing me.

    latest results, interesting how the stoves are ranking with efficiency vs emissions. For some reason I can't link a pic from my phone. I will post pics on twitter, follow #stove13.

    I got to learn more about the Union this pm. It is an impressive stove, both for size and exceptional clean burning. There's a lot of tech behind this burner. I'm told the target price is $1500. If they can pull that off it should be a popular stove here.

    So far it is the leader for low emissions.

    Holy crap. If they can do that AND offer longer burns than the Progress, which is the rumor, I think I found my replacement stoves for the two VCs.

    I like it without all the stuff on it, I'm going to have to seriously consider that stove for that price, looks like a work horse.

    If it's $1500 with longer burns, they probably will have my money for two stoves. If I can swing it, it will be as soon as it is released. At this point I could still sell the to VC stoves for about $700-1500 combined as oppose to waiting until the cats and assemblies are shot.

    Someone needs to take the waterjet away from them, though.

    No kidding! $1500? That has to be a base price or something. Like not including leg or door options. They have sunk tons of money into this thing, I can't see it coming to the market for any less than 2K.

    Don't go squashing my dreams again, Webby. You had me all excited when you said the Ashford was $2k. Then you killed that dream like telling a kid there's no Santa. What next, no Easter Bunny?!

    Lopi is coming out with a steel version of the Cape Cod Hybrid in a mid-sized ~2.2 cu ft stove. Should be a very interesting stove if it matches the Cape Cod's super low emissions. Expect to see some interesting new options on the market by the beginning of 2014.
