lol... I guess that's pretty much it! Don't knock it 'till you try it. Don't forget, I've burned other stoves (note the Jotul in my avatar), and there ain't no going back.I was wondering what the never ending BK yearly thread was like, but never found the need to go read it. Just figured it was a bunch of folks with too much time on their hands, oogling over how superior the BK is. Thanks for the confirmation.
They'd roast me out of the house. One is only heating two rooms of newer construction, maybe 1000 sq.ft. The other is in the old kitchen, but I must move the hot air from that small (500 sq.ft.) space to the other rooms of the house. I spend 95% of the time running my stoves on a very low setting, lower than I believe a T6 will reliably run.
No, it has a removable cast-iron top over a steel firebox. Hot air can naturally convect (or be forced, if you have fans) under this convection deck, right over the combustor mounted in the top of the firebox. Some have mentioned thoughts of removing the cast top to use it for cooking, but I've not read any accounts of anyone actually doing that.Does the Blaze King Ashford stove have a cook top?
No, very simple. Lift out flame shield, and pull out cat. Wrap gasket around new cat, tape it on with masking tape, and press it in. It just sits in an opening, held by friction and gravity.How about changing the cat. Any tools required? Is it difficult?
That depends on a lot of factors. Basements can really suck up some heat, unless they're superbly insulated.How would a Ashford perform in a Wisconsin winter heating a 2000 sq. ft house? ( basement install finished basement)
