    I'd want to see one in operation before I ran out and bought one. That being said, IF it works, in a year or two they'll be a lot better, and everybody will be makin' 'em.

    There was a similar camp stove with youtube videos, We chatted about it last season. I never seen one in action, But I "assume" without the convection blower. You'll need to cuddle up to it.

    Yeah, I agree, but the convenience of pellets instead of wood, if it would heat like a wood stove................

    You could always use them "BIG" pellets. :cheese: If you already have a wood stove me thinx. I gotta say for a camp or cabin stove you'd only use once in a while. No wood fetchin, haulin or finding kindling. Just bring some fuel with you. Sounds way too easy. I'd have to see one in person first!

    That's sorta my point, J. Burnin' pellets at home already, buyin' a few ton for the winter. Instead of trying to get a woodpile stocked up at camp for that week or two of huntin' season, then gittin' up there and findin' out somebody stole all yer wood, haul a few bags of pellets in with ya.

    This was the one I seen last year. The stove in the link that you posted seems like it would warm a larger area or warm faster, as there was a longer exhaust path and would give a better heat exchange..

    Either way, it would be convenient and in-convenient at the same time. Whether a wood stove or pellet stove, you have to carry it. Then you would have to carry the pellets also. Which ensures a dry fuel, but most of the time (depends on the region, if hunting in the Tundra, good luck with Dry anything) you can find wood that has been dead or broken branches.

    All depends on where you are going, what you are doing, and how long your stay will be.

    I do think they are really neat though. I wish I stayed in Ky longer when I go hunting. Would be a good excuse to buy one.

    As with anything, the longer they are out, and the more companies that build them, the more stride will be made in the overall efficiency and cost.

    Well, now we know what Rube Goldberg was doing in the off-season!!! :p Interesting as all get out and just as ugly! Might as well weld some channel onto the sides of the exhaust zig zag for more heat transfer. It so crazy that it appeals to me but I think I'd have a hard sell to the boss!

    They have a domain name parked but no website yet. They are on Facebook so Google says but I can't see them.

    feed system looks like the one on my old traeger grill. Gravity feed... the grill went about 1 hr maybe on a hopper full, betcha this stove would do about the same. Good for an ice shack, I bet, though...
