Should have titled this thread "Put my money where my mouth is" but I didn't. I've never burned but long have supported this stove as being the best thing since sliced bread. I was a BK fan before I ever ran one. So after a good run with a hearthstone Heritage and deciding that the stove is not cut out for the long run as a 24/7 heater I moved on to a Blaze King ultra on the same hearth. I included a picture of it for reference. It worked fine. So I knew what I wanted and went to the typical blaze king dealer, a hardware store, and was surpised that they were pretty decent. They actually had several key parts on display. A cat laying out to hold, the thermostat assembly totally out so that you could adjust it and see what happens, and also several of the stove models including the new sirocco for 1695$. The salesman thought I was odd and left me alone to do my inspecting. Then I walked over and told him to sell me one. I got the ultra with OAK, fans, nickel door and rails, and convection deck. All for much less than the price of a new Heritage. The ultra actually uses a different shaped front surface than the other models. Less round and more square. Same interior shape of course. The pedestal also comes welded on. He loaded my truck with everything except the nickel rails which arrived at my doorstep today, within 24 hours after I left the store. Everything inside the BK stoves is done exactly as it should be done. The only questionable thing is thin steel. They use 1/8" sheet for the body and 1/4" sheet for the top. That's right, sheet, not plate. So the first thing I noticed was that this stove shall be named the flaming roid. Check out the name on the box. I know a little bit of spanish and you first say the noun and then the adjective so Le roid de flames is the flaming roid to me. Ha! Oh and here's the old stove for comparison.
