I use a stove made by Four Dog Stove Company in my 17x14 wall tent. I think mine is the 3-dog model which keeps my tent very warm but Virginia does not have super cold weather do deal with in November, which is when it is used most.

It is a heavy stove and would not pack well.

Another vote for Four Dog Stoves. I love mine with the side water tank.

Okay here you go. I will give you a few examples for the smallest one they make that I bought off my arctic Owen tent.

1. Three little tiny air vents
2. Water tank lid will not open completely and it's difficult to refill since you have to hold it with one hand
3. Legs are thin and unstable
4. Doors won't seal and are leaking

It's a garbage and I would be happy to sell it to you since you like it so much ...

Eldfell Swedish wood stove imported by Mansfield outdoors in WA. is a first rate stove worthy of inspection. Pricey but engineered well and a fire will last for hours.

That is strange, we have the same cylinder stove in our Elk season group tent and it works great. My personal wall tent has a 4 Dog Stove.

FWIW, If you are not packing in this may be a possibility. A buddy we hunt with in Colorado built a stacked barrel stove with the wood box on the bottom and the stove pipe passing through the top barrel that worked as an oven. The top oven part had a wire shelf to hold large trays of whatever meals need heating. Not too tough to build and not that heavy either,

First guy back at the end of the day, stuck in a home prepared pan of lasagna or whatever and sat back with a cold brew. Everybody brought 2 meals and we were good for the week.

When your all whooped it is really nice to take cooking dinner out of play.

I have one of those multi fuel stoves. It works great but does burn a lot of diesel fuel so we only run it a couple hrs. a day to heat the sleeping tent in the evening.

I have only used the 50 gallon drum conversion. I think you can used them on the smaller drums too.
get the barrel for free and about 50$ for the kit. then you'll need black 6" pipe and some elbows. I use a china cap as my pipe goes out the roof and not the side. out the side you'll need a support/steak.
On my last section of the 6" chimney pipe, I drilled about 20, 1/2" holes in to get extra air in the pipe to burn off embers before exiting..
I also installed a piece of 1/4", 12x12 steel plate on top that my buddy had laying around. On this we put on a Big pot with a spout for our hot water.

All of them do something better than the 30-06, but none of them do everything as well.

Another vote for the 4dogs, used mine in night temps between 0 and 15 last year on late season elk in AZ and kept my tent plenty warm. Will agree with the stoking tho, got about 4 hours out a couple large pieces of mesquite. Might try the kingsford this year. Mine was only a 12x12 tent an i had their 3 dog model i believe, it was whatever they recommended for that tent size. Heavy and kind of pricey but well made.

Had a 4-Dog stove and liked it. The front vent looks like it'll let sparks out, but it doesn't. As others have mentioned, the baffle provides a hot spot for cooking but it also prevents sparks from going up the flue. Never saw a spark fly out the flue, nor had burns on my tent.

The owner of the company is a straight shooter. I spoke to him before ordering my stove. Was going to buy a water jacket, but he recommended a big kettle instead. Reason being that you can carry the hot water where you want, like outside the tent. I kept the kettle on one stove shelf all the time where it stayed hot but not boiling. Sliding it over to the stovetop got it boiling quick. Saved a decent amount of money compared to the water jackets, and appreciated the advice. He had quite a few other camping tips, and I enjoyed the conversation.
