If one were to stay in a single spot long enough, the Clary pellet stove might be very effective used in a sort of "attached" outside tent-like structure.
I'm reminded of an experience I had with a sort-of-similar arrangement:
There's a big snow-and-hunter's camp up on the Chewuck River near Winthrop, Wa. No frills except outhouses, of course, but there are a lot of camper-built stone "fireplaces" there that have tall backsides/sides that reflect heat back atcha. A few Octobers ago I spent a week there in one of the spots that had such an arrangement. I parked the trailer so that the fireplace was just outside my deployed-awning rail and jury-rigged a trailer skirt and "sides" for the space the awning
Naturally I had to exercise restraint per size of the fire due to proximity to the awning
, but I had the advantage of low-spark local pine for fuel- and how those stones stored and reflected the heat! I was able to "capture" so much heat that I just left the trailer door open and warmed the inside, too, and it worked even better once I allowed the heat to get under
the trailer by way of removing the skirt from the doorside.
It seems possible to me that a similar arrangement could be made with a freestanding stove, and if fuel is hard to come by this pellet stove could really be the bees knees in such an arrangement. Obviously it would only be worth the trouble if one was staying in one spot for a goodly stretch as I was, but still- food for thought...
Thanks for the info re. the pellet stove, Jason!
