    Todd,

    Nice looking stove. I think any stove would look good on that hearth too. I've seen a Blaze King at a dealer some distance from me and thought they looked pretty good. I like the big firebox and cat combustion system.

    BTW, I see you still have a Woodstock fall away door opener hanging on the right of your Blaze King on your hearth... :)

    If I ever rid my basement of my Englander 30NCH, I would consider a Blaze King.

    Good luck,
    Bill

    Todd, I,m blown away. Another stove. I had to chime in on this one. Enjoy the experience.
    Cheers!

    I knew it was only a matter of time before you just had to test drive a stove with a t-stat. Personally i think any stove would look good on that hearth.

    Shame though now you won't get to play with that stove as much.

    Looks great.

    That's about as believable as when I say that. :p

    Yeah, the t-stat was a big part of my decision. I really like the Woodstock PH but it doesn't have as long of burn time and I'm just not sure about the hybrid thingy. If it was a straight cat with t-stat I'd have one.

    I'm thinking this new stove has even more control than my Keystone and can put out more or less hourly BTU output for twice as long.

    Did they say specifically what would happen?
    Maybe you would have to rig some kind of shield, some sheet metal with a little air space behind? Or a teeny computer fan...
    That stove be lookin' good in my book! Looking forward to the reports when you let 'er rip with a big load of some heavy wood! :cool:

    I'm going to move it out a few inches. I have plenty of room out front.

    Todd when you get a chance could you do a video of the thing burning at its realistic lowest setting maybe give us some numbers on that setting as well.

    It came up in a thread when BKVP first signed up. You can follow from this post on http://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/blaze-king-contact.73186/page-2#post-925004

    Here is a possible solution posted by BKVP "You can try moving the stove out to the minimum 6" or us a non combustible material that is also non heat reflective.
    Thank you

    Chris"

    Picture a stove with no flame, some charred splits with smoke coming off them and black glass. ;)

    Wouldn't be much to see. I spent half an hour the other day cleaning my glass off from the two day burns this spring. Rutland cleaner and a single edge razor blade.

    I've got my new ultra installed and burning too. Will have to make a thread. Similar experiences but I have some cat operational questions for you pros.

    The looks are growing on me for sure.

    Looking forward to seeing it. Maybe do a before and after shot with each stove.

    Do you have the OAK connected?

    I guess this means you won't be going to a Woodstock Open House!

    I'll be here all winter long bragging about my burn times just like all the other BK nuts. Once I get it figured out I'll let you all know how it goes.

    My guess is it will look better and better as the cold weather comes in. :)

    Looks good!!

    Once this Lopi burns out I will look into a BK model. :)

    I know, I know, I am not a big fan of Blaze King's styling......but that stove looks good sitting on that beautiful hearth. Not a bad light show, either. I'd buy one of those 'Kings if they'd change the outside shell. Very nice, clean install.......totally love the hearth!

    OAK is for sure connected. I'm hoping to fire up a thread of my own here tonight. Being new to cats I have some dumb BK and cat questions.
