I was just in the middle of emailing Larry myself and was going to congratulate him on not only the updated splash page but also the news it contains on the reincarnation of sorts for the Chubby stove. I'm betting Larry never thought the Chubby stove would have endeared itself this many years after its debut. It's not perfect - but it works well and has a neat design that keeps it going as a nice alternative heat source.

Im sure in the next few weeks Larry will explaining alot of the changes and the reasons/benifits behind them (I think most of them are indeed a plus), If he does not come on then I will make a thread about them (I just wish Larry would ask Rich to make a section for such things to better help users of this forum and allow a place to discuss Chubby's).

In essence he has taken as much solid welding out of the mix as humanly possible and geared toward cast iron bolting (I wont go through them all in this thread because it would be better discussed in its own section). This has some key advantages in terms of replacement parts. I would like to feel the new external shaker function with a full bed of hot coal (its smooth as butter empty for sure). The price point is certainly good considering all the additional cast pieces in his new units and compared to any other manual coal stoves under $2k this one is tough to beat (im not even sure their are any true coal stoves under this price point :shock: )

Glenwood !!! Im 99% sure thats what you must be thinking??? One of the most proven stoves in history ;) I personally don't agree in certain areas that bolting on cast iron is superior construction then welded steel but the ability to replace parts yourself when needed and the potential cost savings on labor cant be denied. We can go through some of these changes with regards to the new Chubby and it will interesting to get everyone's view. If I ever save enough money to buy one I will be the first in line to buy one of these beauties ;)

You should get same page from either link, I would guess you have the old page cached and it's coming from temp internet files.

Did he change hosts? If he did it might be a DNS issue which is usually cleared up in hours but could take days and results can completely different from one user to the next since it's dependent on who they are using for DNS lookups which is usually their ISP.

Whatever the case I'm seeing the right page on either link.
