Barrel stove.

Post by pr0wlunwoof » November 25th, 2017, 11:50 am

Decided to make a barrel stove. Our half hog roast for New years gets kinda cold so I decided we needed a stick burner to help offset the cold. Bought a kit that included the door, legs, and flu collar. I put a flat top on it so we can cook something on it if we want.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

The basic kit only took a few hours. The flat top was not fun as the barrel didn't lend itself to the mig too well.ImageImageImageImageImage

Got some high temp paint on it, and I gotta say it looks pretty sharp.ImageImage

That's pretty flash. And yes the thin material of the barrel does not make mig a breeze. Lots of little stitch welds and a lot of time in between to cool.
Anway you done it and it looks great. Well done.

We just got it installed today. We got about a teen foot stack. Elevated the whole thing so you can see the fire and load it easier. Makes for a nice piece in the hearth.Image

Nice, I know I shouldn’t even say anything about it because I don’t a picture of it. But I made something like this for a little old house I used to rent of course it weighed about 500lbs but it would warm the whole house at night. I would throw a few oak logs in it and at about 3 or 4 in the morning I would know the wood was gone so I would rush in there and throw a couple more in it and they would light on their own. I left it there when I moved out.

We didn't get it cherry hot yesterday but I plan on loading it to the rim today through the night. Last year was cold, but it should freeze tonight.
