|The Blue Ridge - $119.95|
The stove comes in two sizes, the Trekker and the Blue Ridge, based on the two major sizes of readily available ammo cans. For my purposes, the smaller “trekker” just didn’t seem to fit my needs, so I decided to purchase the larger Blue Ridge model. My plans are to have the stove serve as a heat source for an ice fishing shack that is approximately 5 x 8 feet. I feel that with the shack properly insulated, the Blue Ridge model should be able to adequately heat the small abode on all but the coldest of winter days.

As with any wood-burning stove, it is recommended that you only burn hardwoods. This is to cut back on the amount of creosote created, which could potentially cause stove vents and pipes to become clogged and cause a fire to occur outside of the firebox. If you plan to frequently clean your stove, it is likely that you could burn just about anything you want as long as you take the proper precautions. It is suggested that you can even burn charcoal, which I would have to agree would make for a nice even, long burning and controllable heat.

Be sure to cut wood pieces no longer than 11 inches in length, to ensure you are not struggling to cramp them in the firebox and potentially burn your fingers. This also reminds, when operating any woods stove it is always advisable to wear heavy leather gloves to save you from possible burns.
