I'm looking for advice on purchasing a stove for a 12 man tipi and possibly using the same stove in a silver tip. Preferably I'd like to have only one light weight stove. Would a 16" tigoat stove be enough for the the 12 man? Thanks

Not sure about the TiGoat because I don't have one. But the Seek Outside XL Titanium stove does a good job heating my 16 man Seek Outside Tipi. I think it would heat a 12 person tipi really well. and probably roast you out of a silvertip. How does the TiGoat one you are looking at compare in volume to the XL SO titanium?

You can always build a little fire in a big stove, hard to do the opposite.

The ti goat is (660 cu in) 7.5"(diameter)x 16"(long) and only weighs 1lb 14oz with 7' of stove pipe.

What is the size and weight of your so xl?

bellboy,
I remember looking at an oversized ED-T cylinder stove with a 10" diameter. This Ti stove in a 16-18" length would have some pretty good capacity for a longer burn time. Also a longer stove means less saw work to cut the wood to fit it. I also like the "Sheppard " stove from Hill People Gear. I don't know if they are still available.

^^^^This. I have the same stove for my 12 person tipi and it has been going strong now for the last 5 years. The main features that I like about it is: 1. The door is big enough to put big sticks/small logs into it, and 2. it is deep enough to easily put a full size Duraflame log in, when using it in areas where wood is not available.

A buddy of mine has a Ti Goat stove (can't remember which one), and IMO the biggest issue with it is not being able to put anything of any substantial diameter through the door. It seems like you have to almost constantly be tending to it/feeding it, for it to stay lit.

I noticed the door does seem small. It looks like the lite outdoors stoves have the largest door

Look at Lite outdoors. Many sizes, pretty light. I have an 18" for a "6 man" tipi and it will send you out the door. They redesigned the doors a year or two ago and they are really big. Good service and I have been very happy with mine.
