Has anyone seen this stove in action?

This is very cool!  Provided it works well and can be used safely indoors, I'd buy one.  I wonder how easily it can be vented out a window if need be.  I would assume that if it is being used as an emergency stove in a home, then you wouldn't have a permanent venting setup.  I skimmed the description, but didn't see how the piping would be set up to send everything outside.

I re read it, and it is only a cooking stove, not a heat stove. Just cut a hole thru a window, put in tin, and vent thru a window.

Ah, well then.  If it isn't useful for heat, then I would rather invest in something that is.  Cooking is not something I'm concerned about, but keeping warm in a winter such as this is definitely a major concern.

But it is a kit, you supply the drum, lots in the scrapyard. Says it don't ship to Canada, but shows lots of Canadian customers. 45 gallon drums can last a year or two, and you simply get another one.

Years back before I started building my house I built drum wood stove myself and used it in my big drier to dry my construction  wood. Drum wood stove gives you enough heat for medium size house. Very simple to built and give tons of heat. In case of emergency it would be the easiest and fastest.

That's a great barrel stove!  I was looking at it and thinking it would be even better if they had something to mount to the top to allow you to set a pot or kettle on.  Sure enough, they make that too!

Yes, Greeguy, something on the stove to put a kettle or a pot on would be perfect.  How would I make a drum stove like this safe in a house?

There is a pad you put under a wood stove to prevent sparks, or an asbestos style blanket, or a 4 ft square piece of tin, or galvanized. Just to keep sparks off your floor.
When I was 16, I ran away from home, lived in an old shack with a 5 gallon gas can (old metal style) for a stove. The shack was 8ft square, and that stove kept me warm for a month. HINT, never run away from home in winter!!!!!!!!

Well, I think it's time to start looking for a used barrel or two and a sheet or blanket to put beneath it.  And time to order that kit.  If I can do that before next winter, I'll feel much better about the whole keeping warm during an emergency thing.

You can buy barrels, almost new, for $20-$30 at scrap yard. Get the one that the lid comes off, and is held on with a big clamp. Easier to clean out the ashes. You may wish to fire it up outside a couple of times to burn out the plastic coating on the inside of the barrel, and get rid of any toxins that may have been shipped in it.
I bought one for my rain water barrel. Did you know, there are places in the USA that prohibit you from collecting rainwater, without a permit!!!!!

Awesome info.  Thanks!

That is just so unbelievably wrong.  I get SO frustrated when I hear stuff like this.
