A barrel stove is an excellent way to efficiently and quickly heat up a home. Barrel stoves hold an impressive amount of wood, which means it keeps your home warm straight through the night! The Air-tight version has gasketed doors, which means that you'll have a great overnight burn going. These stoves also heat up really fast, providing quick relief from the cold.
The stove barrel kit uses a 55 or 30 gallon kit, not included. You can obtain that easily from a retailer in your area. Kits consist of a feed door and ash door, 6" damper coller, and legs. The door has a latch with spin dial draft control.
Assembly of the barrel stove is relatively easy- cut out an area for the door and flue on your barrel and you've got a wood stove! You'll also need a good hearth to keep the barrel on. The stoves do get very hot, so if there are children around it is advisable to use a gate to keep little hands from touching it.
