Comments: This is a good stove for homesteaders and off grid lifestyles. It can handle sub par wood - usually a 2 week season is good enough. The drier the better of course, but I find the fresher wood burns longer and is optimal if mixed with a few drier, more seasoned pieces. No cat or expensive parts to replace, Built like a tank.
