Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Randy This barrel stove kit more than met my expectations.
I set this barrel stove up to make maple syrup. I cut the top out of the barrel to accommodate the sap pan. The sections of the barrel I cut out, I split in two and attached along each side of the barrel to make a channel to hold the gasket to seal the bottom of the pane to the barrel. I used long strips of fiberglass insulation that I wrapped in tin foil, to keep this simple gasket from melting. So far it is working great and we have boiled down about four gallons worth of syrup.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BUBBA333 works great
i bought a double barrel kit. works great. took some time to get everything assembled straight. I have built a block building outside my 2800 sf house and taped into the duck work to heat my house. T
he kit doesn't let enough air in, so i opened the 3" port on the btm of the btm barrel and it works great. this way you don't need to leave the door cracked.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kinnick It does its purpose
I built a double barrel smoker with the kit and its adaptor kit. The door is heavy duty and I am pleased with it. There is not enough air getting through to the fire so a lot of the time I have to leave the door opened. The stands are ok at best. They could have engineered a better stand product with a little more time/care. Otherwise, this is a decent kit without fabricating one homemade.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by stove Quality as expected
The fit of the legs was disappointing, but everything else worked well enough. Very poor quality hardware, as to be expected. The overall result is wonderful and was overall a relatively simple project for amateurs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian works well.
For the price, it creates a great stove. I actually used it to create a maple sap evaporator. The ball on the handle could use some improvement. I had to replace the bolt after the one sent me stripped out.

Easy to use kit took less then 15 minutes to complete.The handle on the door latch is the only thing that wasnt up to par and broke before I could even get the paint burned off of the barrel.

Bought for a smokehouse works well for that. The door has to be left open a bit ( 1/2 to 1 3/4 in) to get a good draft. The kits hardware was missing,more annoying than expensive.
