A Full Description of This Amazing Stove!

The new Patented  GAP 2020 model by Independent Stove LLC is a gravity feed non-electric pellet stove. Designed and built by Gary Wisener and Gene Bradley, also known as Smokey, owner of Smokey's Stoves located in Grants Pass and Medford Oregon. Gary is the inventor of the first gravity feed non-electric pellet stove the Wiseway. Gary teamed up with Smokey who was instrumental in distributing his first stove throughout the market. Gene or better known as  Smokey realized what the market was wanting and together, they designed a Fireplace Hearth model that would accomplish everything the public was asking for, a stove with a large glass door for viewing the fire and able to vent through their fireplace. Together with Gary the Gap 2020 was invented with an improved firebox design and new innovative feed control system along with the ability to operate in a negative pressure environment, this new stove meets Canada Mobile Home requirements.  Smokey's is the exclusive distributor. The GAP 2020 completely different in so many ways from its looks to how it operates it will amaze everyone, in fact, nothing on the market will compare to the innovative features this stove has. During EPA testing at Omni test Labs in Portland we were informed it was the first stove in five years to pass Canada Mobile Home requirements, that requires a stove to operate in a negative pressure environment.  The GAP 2020's innovative patented design and functionality will have people amazed at how easy to light and operate. This stove has an operating heat output between 300 degrees to north of 1000 degrees, making the GAP 2020 a serious contender for anyone wanting some serious heat. But controllable down to a small room steady and rock solid wherever you need to operate at. The GAP 2020 was safety tested to 8 different installation applications the one that makes it stand alone is its ability to set in front of any fireplace and vent through the opening and up the flue, it was also approved to vent through a O-Clearance fireplace as well as a Masonry fireplace. An additional leg kit and insulation kit is required for the O-Clearance application, but a simple 4" liner is all that's needed to vent the stove. Because it was required to be tested to UL-1482 a wood stove test it still needs a min 16" hearth in front of the door in the USA and 18" clearance in Canada. With an 88 lb. hopper, the stove on low can run between 3 and 4 days on a full load, but that would vary with draft conditions. Now for those that have no fireplace to utilize, a 10 " pedestal along with a  rear heat shield and reverse the flue to a vertical position and you can place it almost anywhere in your home as a freestanding model, installation in bedrooms are not allowed. The GAP 2020 was safety tested for a flat wall, parallel wall whether left or right, a diagonal corner or Alcove installation, so you see the GAP 2020 will fit anywhere. You can even cook on this stove, a 4-gallon water jacket accessory, side shelves and drying rack are available and a oven is in the works.  Proud to be made in the USA and not China says a lot. Taking orders now through Smokey's Stoves and am already blown away with the response we have received from its limited exposure to the industry.
