I’m not entirely sure, but I do remember that when I first got it my thought was, “This is hefty and well made.” It’s got 3 cast iron pieces, at least. My best estimation would be 35 - 40 lbs. Sorry that I cannot be more precise.

Can this be used in a cabin?

Can be used in a cabin, we have been heating our cabin with one for over 50 years (not the same one, barrel burns out) but check your insurance company, most will not insure building with this type of heater inside. May need to find a smaller "mutual" type insurance company in your area.

MATT, YES YOU CAN USE THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL, BUT THE DOOR SHOULD FIT WITHOUT THE BUNG INTERFERING WITH THE DOOR. THE PHOTO OF THE DOOR APPEARS LARGER THAN IT IS.

Does it have a gasket around door

Asked by Al January 22, 2019

Answers

I don’t remember if it came with a gasket or not. I’ve seen some talk about these kits having issues with the door seal, so picking up your own gasket rope kit is probably advisable. I still haven’t built my stove yet - but I have the kit and am glad that I will have it when it’s needed.

Happy Sapping
Not only does it fit a barrel, but I’ve put my kit on to an oil tank that I cut out and had a friend weld. The only draw back is the damper doesn’t let in enough air to get a big fire going needed to get a big boil on the sap. Another thing I’ve noticed is the door is showing some rust, possibly due to the heat from the wood fire. However, it works well and looks awesome. I would purchase this product again.

First of all, this is made in China. And its not very good cast iron. Tots of voids and such - clearly the result of poor sand and worn patterns. It arrived quickly, but one of the legs that goes between the barrels was broken. Called US stove (per included directions) and was assured a replacement would be sent out immediately. Received it almost 14 days later. And it was the wrong part. Not that it mattered anyway: the between barrel leg kit is too big to match the coupler that is shipped with the kit. Speaking of too big, the legs really don't fit the curvature of a 55 gallon drum. Additionally, its pretty obvious that the legs were originally designed to have two bars holding them together, not just a tiny 1/4 inch machine screw and nut. A fender washer is a must for safety. And, be prepared to use a grinder on the legs to get a good finish - lots of flash and such left in place. Lastly, carefully reading the manufacturers instructions, the stove is not recommended or intended for actual use. Just temporary outdoor use only. Not intended for heating. I guess its for looks only. Its pretty darn clear to me that this was seriously re-engineered to be a cheap knockoff product of what was originally back in the day an excellent product that was a testament to backyard engineering and DIY craftsmanship. As you can see from the picture, I did some serious mods to make this effective.

The barrel stove is a primitive stove that has never been designed as a home heating appliance for everyday use in living spaces. It is designed for use in open air situations and workshops. It has not been safety tested for indoor use in relation to UL and CPSC safety standards thus we cannot recommend that it is used in a living space.

This particular kit has been in production for many years and cannot possibly fit every barrel each consumer may use. I apologize that it did not fit your intended use situation. If you are truly unsatisfied with the product please contact Home Depot customer care for a return authorization or you may contact our customer care center for a complete kit replacement.

From the looks of your photo you are using two barrels. You should also purchase the BKAD500 to obtain the legs that are designed to go between the two barrels. The BSK1000 that you are reviewing is only designed for a single stove. USSC

Winter is fast approaching. This is a four year testament review to a barrel kit heater. I purchased everything I needed to put a barrel heater in my shop four years ago and could not be any happier. On the coldest days this system will run you out of my shop. As one can see, I sat the heater on blocks for better air flow, used black stove pipe, and a heater barrel sold here at The Home Depot. I learned that the key to a long lasting system is to apply high heat paint on my stove components and change the pipe and barrel out if pin holes appear. I highly recommend adding 5- 6 inches of dirt (yes dirt) or sand-spread out evenly to the bottom and getting a grate for the wood to sit on. This keeps the heater bottom from burning out prematurely. An old trick used by many wood heating people. The heat is regulated by the damper and the air flow door on the kit. I do not recommend this type of system for indoor applications. The Home Depot sells many quality stoves and triple wall pipe systems for safe in- home use. I highly recommend this simple kit and type of heater solution for those on a budget. Now is the time to get ready for the colder days ahead!
