BTG - Stove Power, Grate Diameter, Chamber Height

Discussion at the Stoves Camp led to questions about the power output of a stove relative to the diameter of the grate and height of the combustion chamber. Dean and I recommended, the Website for Environmentally Sound Biomass Stoves. While the entire site deserves study below are the links to some specific design topics.

Downdraft Barbeque
Peter Verhaart (Feb 7,99), Water Boiling Tests (Mar 6, 2002)

We have used it quite a few times now (we are not great barbecuers), it is quite convenient to operate. It typically takes 12 minutes to settle into smokeless and odourless combustion, our official propane fired bbq takes longer.
