    It looks like the price will be in usual Englander territory.

    My camera is on the fritz and I own the only cell phone left in the country that won't start the dishwasher or take pictures.

    Grisu: I look for it to stick to Bob England's credo of making stoves a working man can afford to heat his house.

    The main thing is setting the air control where you prefer for the burn and then twisting it to open up higher startup air. Then when the stove gets up to temp it drops back to your preferred primary air setting automatically. Kinda like Quads ACT except it is temp controlled, not just a timer.

    it was then and is now..

    i wasn't going to bring it up, but since it has been mentioned. its pretty awesome to watch burn in the lab. Mark and Brandon and the guys in the lab did a great job on a difficult project. cant wait for this one to hit the streets.

    oh and BTW, floor protection "ember protection" is the requirement from what i understand. no more "big R factors" to deal with. you guys asked for it, here ya go.

    Be careful Mike. Or I will tell the pellet guys about the new one too. ;lol It's not only "smart" but a looker too.

    Was that the same pellet stove running in the seminar tent? I apologize I don't give pellet stoves much of a look over.

    Sorry to disappoint you but you have to share that distinction. >>

    It is reasonable priced and even good-looking in addition??? Now they are really challenging the competition.

    Thanks Creig for getting the hearth family together for this event. I hope you can do it again. It was great to meet a few of the brothers here.

    I can certainly say that I was very impressed with all the stoves there. One that really caught my eye was the little stove (biomass) sitting outdoors. It is amazing what they can do with that little 2 pound stove and I can see that not only those who backpack and/or camp could use them nicely but can also envision something like that being used in the military and also in the poorer nations. It takes so little fuel to do so much. But then, I could make so many comments on all the stoves because they all will fill a need. My congratulations to all the folks who entered.

    To the gang at the Hilton, we apologize for not being there but we wanted to. We also had to pass up another invitation at that same time but the ornery one and me were about burned out by the time things were getting started.

    To Craig and the moderators who were there, we really wish we'd had more time as we wanted to talk to all of you. Time sometimes seems to be the enemy.

    That is actually a quite nice looking stove (maybe with the exception of that spiral handle and then even in brass! ugh ;)). Now it just needs to make coffee in the morning and our stove recommendations will have been made a whole lot easier. ;lol

    Don't feel bad Dennis, I didn't make the after party either. I was pretty worn out after being in that tent all day talking to people and helping diagnose problems. I had a 2.5 hr drive back home so I rolled out after everyone left to go to the hotel.

    It was great to be able to meet you and the wife.

    i'd seen the Biolite camp stoves online in the past, pretty neat piece, i said so to the fellows demo'ing them at the tent, wife thought it was kool as well being able to charge a phone off the teg powered system mounted to the side of the little firebox. you can burn pellets in it or scrape up some pine needles and twigs at a campsite light it off and build a charge from the heat.

    nice product

    When Dennis took this pic there was a kinda wild eyed guy with a lot of life on his face sitting just to the right of the fellows in the foreground. The next morning as I walked to the tent he was asleep on the ground under a thin blanket with his belongings around him a hundred feet from the tent. A homeless fellow had found a place to get warm in the tent and a few snacks.
