good day! we are building a 16ft yurt and are looking for a multi purpose heating and cooking wood burning stove. we have narrowed it down to these two models. do you have experience with both/either of these? is there something better we haven't been able to find? we're on the southern west coast of canada.
I don't have experience with either of the stoves you linked. I have a Cylinder Stove http://www.cylinderstoves.com/stoves.html the outfitter package. Which heats my 216 sq ft canvas tent so well, that I can have the windows open on a cold fall night and still be quite warm if I don't dampen down the fire and burn slow. Cylinder stoves do have a flue oven option also, that can give you some oven cooking ability, though I have yet to buy this myself so can't report the functionality of that.
I have known a lot of folks who have gotten the Frontier stove. They have all said good things about it.
