My Pioneer stove is installed and running. I can't believe how well this stove heats. It was a little difficult to get the coal started but once it's going the heat keeps coming. The coaltrol works great also. So far I haven't had to touc :D h it. The real test will be in january when it's maybe 10 for a high temp. My wife is also happy so far. She loves the flame and the glowing coals. I would have to say this is one of the best purchases I've ever made. The only thing that would be better is if I had a coal mine in my backyard.

If you like the stove now you will love it when winter gets here. Trust me, it will become a gathering place. My wife and kids kind of snubbed their noses at dad and his goofy stove but as it got colder out I would find them in front of the stove all of the time. It was not because the rest of the house was cold because I kept it at 73 but rather like a lizzard soaking up the heat. So when winter comes keep an eye out for the stove lizzards!

Our bodies like radiant heat. Overheated 'scorched air' is not comfortable,, but radiant heat is.

Congratulation, great stove. One point, search the forum on keeping the door glass clean, I have not had much luck. I did read applying butchers wax helps & its better to do it with a new stove. Good luck.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've had good luck with the rutland glass cleaner so far. I've tried one bag of coal tha my dealer gave me but I picked up five bags of Jeddo coal which seems to be washed unlike the other. It was also $50 less than the other.In my area my choices seem to be somewhat limited but I'm finding other sources the more I look. Maybe I'll look into getting a full 24 tons and sell what I don't need. The prices around here range from $375 bagged to $245 loose. I really can't say enough about the Pioneer stove though. It easily surpassed my expectations.

Matt, congrats on the install. I'm sure it'll be more popular as the days get colder.
