Forgot to ask if anyone knows of any other company makes and sells soapstone wood stoves if they are as good as Woodstock of NH says they are? Or if any of you know the best wood stove and/or fireplace to buy?

NH is a long way from Texas! Ha! Ha! But they say we'll get free shipping until May...

Hey, I don't even know if Yankee stoves will burn southern wood or not! Can ye help me out? What do you think, Burrhead?

Burlgoat, checkout these sites. Seems like anything else, you gets what you pays for.

Seems like I mention them a lot, but Lehman's carries so much stuff that country folk need.

They say they have the largest selection of wood stoves in North America, and they sell soapstone stoves as well as many other types. They've got "budget" stoves and "yuppy" stoves and everything in between. The stove showroom is worth a day's drive to Ohio to see, but their paper catalog is pretty good too...and has head-to-head comparisons of different makes and models, which is pretty handy.

If you are going to burn wood...The $180 Boxwood Stove from Harbor Freight, or one like it, is as good of a wood stove as any...the others are just fancier and bigger and will run you out of the room everytime...a Boxwood Wood Stove has the old traditional look, is easy to clean and take care of, takes up less room, and is set up for cooking if the power goes out. PLUS...it's about $1500 cheaper than the fancy ones. It's the only type of wood stove I will ever buy...great for shops too. For gas checkout VERMONT CASTINGS...they are real nice and will run you from $1400-$2000.

Like Salmoneye mentioned below...

A company called Hearthstone makes soapstone stoves here in Vermont.

I've got a 15 year old Hearthstone II that keeps us nice and toasty.

They're on the web.

Give em a look...

You probably won't get this but do you happen to still have the specs for the Hearthstone 2? I'm looking at picking a used one up but they know next to nothing about it.
