Lookin to buy a stove for my Cimarron. The price/weight of seeks med/large are negligible, but is the burn time of the large worth buying it or should i just go with the medium? Other stove brands i should consider?

I have the medium it will burn you out of the tent burn times are not very long but doubt you will gain much time with the large.

Awesome, I have a 1.5 year old. He's a handful! Currently having a rare moment of sitting on the couch!

Large you will be able to have larger pieces of wood. As for the burn time they both gonna burn fast. I’d go with the large personally.

I hear that the stove luxe sells is very good....3w? Has glass in the door. I have a medium so stove. Large has maybe 30% more capacity. Less capacity and you just stoke it more......the luxe stove has no csr service at all...once you open the box it is yours and the listing says the box may contain..I am gonna see how well the medium stove works in the new to me ti-goat vertix 7.5....it is plenty in the Cimarron.

go Bigger. had both. Weight isn’t sig enough to feel imo, and the added versatility is nice. I ended up going longer pipe as well. Now I have something that works with multiple shelter sizes and I’ve found a nice flow with.

I have the smallest wood stove that TiGoat made. I believe it is a 14 inch cylinder stove. It puts off plenty of heat for a Cimarron, though you have to do a good bit more processing work for wood to fit in it and feed it more regularly. The upside? Significantly less volume in your pack than the large stove designs.

i just sold a medium u turn and replaced it with a large. The medium heated my Cimarron just fine, but you have to cut or break up the wood very short, and stoke it constanty. The weight and size difference is nothing. Go with the large.

Look up Four Dog stoves. Well revered and a bonus of a MN company. Not cheap but really light and quality appears to be top notch. Haven’t used one personally but have been researching as well.

I have a 16 man Teepee from SO. We got the Big Mama I think it's called. It gets warm. The long stove pipe also gets warm. Burn time is not long. If you keep a pile of wood in the tent and set an alarm an hour or two before you want to get up you can stoke the fire and warm it up.

They do not burn through the night.

Also, folded up it fits in my Cavern. I feel it's safer in there than on the horse.

I hadn't considered the issue of cutting up the wood into smaller pieces for the medium. Great point

This is a goodpoint. I remember being limited with the girth of the wood we were cutting. It's not that the opening was too small, but after you get wood in there, the available space is less. A larger overall stove would let larger pieces go in.

We found dried out aspen and burned them. Small ones less than 4". We bring in a light weight saw that folds down. 20 minutes of cutting can do you for a night.
