I've had an 18" Smith Cylinder stove for the last two seasons. One season in a Megatarp and now a Sawtooth.

I love every thing Kifaru! Huge fan boy! But this stove just doesn't seem to be as well engineered as the rest of their products (sorry Aron this thing kinda sucks).

It seems very unstable and sloppy.

Also it seems when it gets hot tbat it's a fuel hog. Like it's a constant job to keep fuel in it to keep it from going out. I understand it's not air tight so it won't burn for ever. But when I get it going it seems I've got to really work at feeding it.

Kinda wonder if the medium box would be a better bet. That or even a Ti Goat 20" or WiFi. I'd really like to feed it split logs or larger branches. With the Smith the door is pretty small which also makes lighting it a pain.

Also see Lite Outdoors has a large cylinder stove but it's a tad heavier but the door on it is generous.

A few guys said to look at Seek as well.

The Smith sure does heat the shelter but but just wondering if there's a different option that's a tad larger and has a better fit n finish.

Just try a seekoutside box stove,a damper is the way to go to control the burn.I have tried, liteoutdoors, kifaru, para,small and medium stoves,at this day seekoutside and liteoutdoors was the best,only thing i dint like about the liteoutdoors was the lack of collar set,the best results was to use it with a SO damper set.Now i am only using seekoutside.

I was gonna order the medium Tigoat WiFi for my LBO but since they aren’t taking orders right now I’m gonna go with the LO 18” cylinder stove.

Ruta Locura is the son of the guy that owns TiGoat. I believe they said their stoves are the same as the old WiFi stove. I'd check those out.
