After living with a RMH for a couple of years I am sold on the idea of capturing a storing heat. I am sure that someone has experimented with converting the standard metal box stoves into mass storage heaters. How is that working?
What are the pros and cons? Who can I talk to about ideas?
I have problems with smoke back into a small space and I never have been able to get the down draft working consistently. I have been using a horizontal fire box successfully and may have found solutions recently to draft issues. Still I would like to help people get more efficiency out of their home wood heating systems. Modifying existing stoves seems like a good idea.

Would you replace your oven with a rocket oven?
