I looked at this unit on Sunday, but ultimately decided to pass on it. In retrospect, I wished I had taken a camera, to post a couple of pictures here. It just looked like it would be too much work to bring it back. There was a missing gear on the feed mechanism, not sure how easy those are to source.
How does one work on the "guts" of these things? The only way I saw to access the firepot area was down the pipe that is at the front.
I think I need to "cut my teeth" on something a little simpler, at least for my first stove. If anyone is looking for more details, let me know.
