Review of Large Country Franklin stove

Franklin

There seem to be a number of manufactures of these things. I found mine to be a bit on the poor side. There were no seals on the doors which made control a bit of a hit and miss affair. Nice when the doors are open and it does kick out a bit of heat but wouldn't be a choice of mine in future.
