The following are simply other peoples opinions, however it doesn't sound good - check out this thread from the boiler room. If you live in a state with less restrictions than mine you might want to check out Heatmor, CB, Empyre, Cozeburn, Greenwood Aspen - there are a lot of choices out there. Good luck. I have a CB E-Classic that I like a lot. However, my choices were limited due to VT restrictions. Pete

Those people on that forum was some upset and I don't blame them any,if what they say is true.One thing I did not really like was the way the stack came down into the fire box.The smoke should really go through a chamber or baffles than out the chimney,I feel.But that's only my opinion  on it.
