Yeah, the DW is a beast! It heats like one too! All cast iron and the refractory sits on top of the fire so nothing can touch it. I don't know how they got the Encore to heat that much with such little weight compared to most mid sized cast iron stoves. I also don't understand how they gained that much weight with the new Encores in the same body? Looks like I won't have time today to install the Encore, but I'll get to it sometime this week, hopefully tomorrow. But who knows, after a long weekend and a Monday at work, building an addition to an elementary school. I may not have enough energy to get that thing in the house. Plus, we are supposed to get some more snow, so I'm sure to have some snow removal to do around here. But I can't wait to fire it up!
