This little stove is simple, well constructed, and compact, and can put out an amazing amount of heat! The draft on it (fit with a 3" stove pipe as designed) doesn't pull all of the smoke if the door is open, which means it can't be used for that open door firelight effect. However, it can be stuffed with deadwood, seasoned hardwood, or lump hardwood charcoal and, by barely opening the draft, it can be set to slow burn for most of a night. I used it nightly for two winters in a row now, and stayed cozy warm with it. The draft could be improved, but it's still a worthy base camp stove. Definitely good for the 4 to 8 person size tent.
We are using this woodstove in our 34ft 1983 RV that we totally remodeled to suit our needs. We use this stove for heat and we also cook on it. When the temp dropped in Telluride to below freezing we were able to stay warm with the stove by adding wood every 2-3 hours. In Baja we are using this stove daily to cook. We can fit a frying pan and small saucepan on top at the same time and use the area below the stove to heat up tortillas or leftovers. We often cook on it several times a day. We searched high and low for a small affordable woodstove that works for us and this one does the trick.
