I'm a first season user, but I would never want this smoke and dirt in my home let alone expect my wife to tolerate it. There are still some occasions when I open the door at the wrong time and get a ball of fire! Nope not in my irreplaceable historic home. I'd expend far more emotional and physical energy trying to control the smoke and dirt, than the extra time in the woods (that I enjoy) gathering wood to offset the lost btus. Just one vote but absolutely not. These things deserve a Mancave.
