Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MountainMan Good stove kit
First time using wood stove for heat, decided to get this kit. I installed everything burned off the paint from the barrel then repainted using Rustoleum high heat black paint. Turned out nice. I use this to heat my cabin 270sqft with 13ft high ceilings. Does excellent job at heating. Had a little bit of a learning curve to use this set up. I had to build everything on a small budget to get away from propane and electric space heaters which were killing my wallet. I spent roughly $250 completely installed and heating the cabin. I had same little troubles with drafting that others have mentioned, but, I added another 24inch section of pipe to the top of my stack and bam this thing is perfect now. So if you have issues with it not drafting good try that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lincoln2douglas Double Barrel Stove; works well
I built a double barrel version of a barrel stove using this kit and the double barrel kit to increase heat exchange efficiency. I am raising the temperature in a 30x80 un-insulated pole barn by 10 degrees with one load of firewood. I am sure that I could raise it more if I burned more wood. I recommend this system. Total cost, including both kits, stovepipe, elbows, fire sealant caulk to go around the parts, insulated 4x8 sheet for heat reflector and paint was $182.

Good overall product. Makes a good amount of heat. I'd recommend getting stove pipe caulking for all flanges and joints to keep smoke from coming out.
The air vents on the door are a little small so I end up cracking the door a little to feed the flame.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mwmurray This product was okay.
This product was okay for the price. This fireplace needs a better dampening system to it, the air flow is not quite sufficient. Does put out good heat for a small shop.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jimactech great for desposing of yard debris or heating the outside deck.
I easily cut barrel with a grinder and cleaned edges with a file. Drilled holes and mounted door and exhaust damper with the hardware included.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Piper US Stove – Made in China???
Although I see many glowing reviews of this stove, I found the casting to be of a cheaper quality. I don’t believe the product pictures accurately represent how sub-par the paint is. I was also extremely disheartened and disappointed that this product was made in China especially considering the manufacture’s name is US Stove. I wish Home Depot would add where a product was made to their description.
