    Harman also has a secondary burn chamber in the back of their stoves. Must be similar to VC's.

    Back in the mid 90's I had an Energy King wood stove with a 3.2 cu ft fire box. It didn't have a steel baffle with holes or tubes. It had a metal strip shaped as a "T" with holes running through. Then there were firebricks resting on top of it creating the insulating heat for secondary combustion. I thought it burned great, even on low it always had lively flames and clean glass. Later when I moved and started looking at stoves, Energy King changed their design and went to a cat stove.

    Corie,
    If it's a challenge you want maybe you could incorporate both technologies, cat and non-cat? Then make it a top loader with a grill/rotisserie option?
