I am going to buy one or the other, but there is not a lot written on the F3500. The CAT warranty is better on the F3500, and they are about the same price. I'm looking for the longer burn times. I cannot figure out the size of the ash pan on the F3500. There is a lot written on the BK, so I have that info. All things being equal, we like the look of the BK better, and will go with it. Can someone convince me to to buy the F3500? I live in northern Ontario. Usually 2-3 weeks of -40. Thanks!
