Good one, Tommy!

If you hadn't explained it,.... that the picture would have made for a lot of head scratching trying to figure out how you got a fire in it without a stove pipe. :lol:

Paul, I picked it up from a member in November 2019 and used it all last season. It’s a heat monster for sure! I broke it completely down over the summer and rebuilt it. Perfect stove for my house. I love it! I did light the G116 for a few weeks at the end of last season, but fell back to this beauty. I know these suspended pots inside and out so I’m more comfortable with them.

Remembering now how long the burn time you got with the Crawford..... I can see why you'd want to stick with it. :yes:

I think that long burn may be the record winner ?

Great work Tommy!!!

Thanks for the compliment! I got a 96 hour burn at the end of last season, but that was basically until the last glowing coal snuffed out. I was letting it die out and wanted to see just how long it would burn for. I did manage to revive a 72 hour burn on low idle with plenty of fuel left in her.

thats pretty awesome, my gibraltar has gone three days without adding coal, and recovered. i never tried to go much further, i can jam in 100# of nut, how much does that thing hold?

It holds 50 pounds of nut exactly. I’ve run stove coal through it and it seems to run better on it, but I can’t get bulk stove coal in my area. I opt for bulk nut, just because it’s much cheaper than bagged stove in the end.

the only thing ive noticed between pea nut and stove sized coal is recovery times and low reliable burns.. so i can turn her down lower on pea/nut combo, but it takes longer to get back hot again. the stove size can go from an idle to melting steel in like 10 mins. but seems to be much harder to get burning down low and slow.
