coal nut wrote:The newer kodiaks have a "black cast iron hopper" that hangs right under the top loading door. The pics you are showing are the tapered firebrick design they went to years ago. The hopper is indeed a hopper. It takes up most of the inside of the stove. You cant even see the back of the stove due to the hopper.
