    Got me. But from the looks of it, you'd want that front and center. And since it's an oven, I'd think it would be in the main area at least adjacent to the kitchen. That thing is beautiful!

    They had one going at the pig roast back in 2011. It is quite impressive!

    It takes more than 3 men and a boy to move that beast. Here is my wife standing beside it so you get an idea of the size. No, not the size of my wife, it is the stove I'm referring to.

    Shouldn't she be sitting on a milk crate? ;)

    Judy doesn't sit on milk crates. She is the one that checks and cleans the chimney.

    What Dennis didn't tell you all is that Judy is 6'-3" tall!

    Am I understanding it right that the andirons fold down/out when the door is opened? If so that will just be something to burn myself on when loading the stove. The stove is a front loader no reason for it to have andirons imo.

    For sure folks will have to wear gloves when filling this stove. Which, I've always stated that everyone should do every time the fill the stove unless it is a cold start.

    Me bad. Since getting the T6 I only put on gloves if I need to handle a split. That big door and firebox have helped me get down to one burn or less a season.

    I always wear gloves reason being, I never throw or chuck my wood into the stove, especially with the soapstone inside the Fireview, I always set my wood in... that way no cracked stones!

    Likewise I don't chuck logs in. If needed, I use a poker rod with an L on the end to position the logs in the back. No cracked stones going on season 5. Note I think that gloves are a good idea in general. The big mouth of the T6 has just allowed me to be a bit more casual with loading. Now watch, my first fire of the season will result in a big arm hair singe.
