The fire doesn't burn against the sides or top of the stove. We have found the the 12ga. metal will let the heat penatrate and be released into the room much faster the 1/4 plate. Our Econo is only rated at 70,000 BTU. The Econo is just that , a inexpensive stoker. This stove in not meant to heat your entire home, nore do we ever claim it. If your comparing to a Harmon, better check price. When I spoke with you on the phone, you said a stoker was out, needed a hand fired ?????????????
I liked the hand fired, but people on this board are leading more to the econo stoker. If I go with a stoker, which model would heat my home? Phil at Outside Matters recommends your pioneer, or key stoker 70K hand fired.
