Hey guys... So 3 years ago when we purchased our home, I picked up a large used stove locally and did the install. After some modifications (secondary air, fire brick), I've been able to get decent burn times out of it (12-15hrs on a full load). The stove is fairly large... 4 cu. ft. box. 8" vertical flue (double wall from stove to ceiling, stainless double wall class a from ceiling to rain cap). This stove has severed us well.. but it has seen some abuse over the years. The firebox walls are no longer straight, etc. It is pushing 35yrs old so it's somewhat to be expected. With all that said, we are looking for a large stove with 8" flue that can get LONG burn times while producing decent heat. Our house is ~2k sq ft. and the old stove could keep up fairly well until temps got below zero.. after that, it would struggle but would still be comfortable without overfiring. I'm leaning towards the BK - King... only issue is the closest dealer is 2.5hrs out. Are there any other stoves I could look at of similar size, burn times, etc? I like idea of being able to run the King in the lower settings during the off seasons (40s-50s) as our current stove will have the house at 85 if it isnt below freezing out. The other thing that kinda concerns me is the pickyness of these new stoves when it comes to wood. Our wood supply is typically stacked for 2 years but there have been times that we've ran down a bit and had to tap into stuff that wasn't as dry as it should be. The old stove didn't mind at all but these new stoves... not so sure. Anyways... thanks for any input.
