Today I was over at the local stove shop getting a chimney brush (that's for another post!) and saw the coolest little stove I've ever seen. Morsoe 2bou The stove retailed for around 1300 bucks. The firebox is VERY small. I'd say it' could handle 1 good size split at a time, but given the design, I'd bet that stove gets every BTU there is out of that wood.
