    Can anyone give me some good info. on this nice looking stove ? I am looking at this page with the green/gold legged classic. Does it come in three sizes too ? Good stoves ?

    http://www.chimneysweeponline.com/pacspecc.htm

    Which ones come with this new EBT ?

    Does anyone know how thick the steel is inside ?

    I read most of it but need real input.

    Does it have burn tubes like my Avalon mission ?

    Firebrick ?

    Roospike, this is beautiful !!

    No tubes, pacifics use the old solid baffle system.

    I believe it's all 1/4", but roo would know for certain.

    Roospike, thank you for that information, that is quit a nice stove. I read all the threads and looked at all your pics and I must say I am very impressed.

    The EBT seems it would be a wonderful thing. Have you noticed it works really well ? Did you have another wood stove before this one ?

    One last question, what would happen if you loaded your stove with several big logs, dampered down all the way and left it ? Would it burn at a modest rate or really get going ?

    Thanks for all the answers.

    Thanks Robbie !
    O' Yeah , you can tell its there . You have most of the control of the stove but when you damper down it going to add air or take it away as needed to make for a long burn time and also so it burns at an autumn temp . Ya can't "choke" this stove out of air , it will do what it needs to do per the EBT .
    Yes i have had 4 other stoves in the past and 3 being "air tight" stoves. The other stoves i have had are not even in the same ball park per performance and burn time. This stove ( Pacific Energy Summit ) is the easiest stove to run per 1 air control knob and it does the rest. You still have to make sure your reload wood is carded before dampering down and you set it to how much heat you need in your home and the stove does the rest.
    Good question ............ as per a reload and you loaded it 75% or more and let the wood char and then dampered it "all the way down" the EBT is going to take over and allow XXX amount of air in to the stove to achieve a clean burn and the fire will not choke and as the wood load burns down and less air is needed for a long burn time the EBT is going to control the air to run it as low as it can but enough air not to choke the fire. The stove is going to run hotter per the amount of wood you put into the stove ..... Its going to put off more BTU's at the lowest setting on a full load vs only 2 logs at the lowest setting. I dont even use a thermometer to run the stove ........... Just as long as you dont "over fire" the stove , forget about it and let it run wide open you wont have a problem. Real life useage ? .... I normally run the air damper on the low side from 15%-25% , its very rare your going to run the air inlet all the way on its lowest setting. If you need less heat then you load less wood. The extra thick steel firebox is really nice because it dont "blast" you with heat like a thinner steel wood stove , it takes a little longer to heat up and holds heat a lot longer then any stove i have run because of the thicker steel so when you make adjustments to the air inlet the heat coming off the fire box is more even instead of super hot all of a sudden.
    No problem at all brother man .

    Wow........amazing..........wonder why it took so long for someone to invent EBT.........oh, I forgot, that is another question. :cheese:

    Very nice, off to do a google search and see what else I can learn, thanks.

    I think this EBT is a good thing for non cat stoves. It should keep the firebox hot enough for secondary combustion even if you damper all the way down and leave it. No tweaking with air controls to keep flames going. But I don't see how adding more air to the firebox will extend a burn? It will make it hotter and cleaner, thus shorter burn times. This technology makes the stove idiot proof so someone doesn't just load the stove up and shut down the air all the way and wonder why there is no fire or heat.

    What I like about cat stoves is once the cat is lit off, it doesn't matter if there is fire or just a smolder, it burns the smoke at a lower temp in the firebox and creates more heat and longer burns. No tweaking or worrying about air settings either.

    Assuming the stove is up to temp to lite off the cat before setting it. http://chimneysweeponline.com/hocats.htm & http://chimneysweeponline.com/hoebt.htm

    Yeah, I've read his letters. Infact, some of them are mine. He is pretty stuborn on that issue. People think cat stoves are dying out, but every manufacture is trying to build a stove that copies what a cat is capable of and make it idiot proof. Don't get me wrong, there are different stoves for different folks. They all have thier place.
