hcarlow, right now being warm as only a solid fuel can provide is my biggest priority, followed closely by convenience and least amount or work.
My 2 cents. During summer use for DHW I fill hopper once every 13 days and empty ash tub every 3rd day. Winter hopper gets filled 3-4 days and ash tub once a day. Convenience and least amount of work doesn't get any better then a stoker.Keystoker Ka-6 Journey begins
