Electric Company Couldn't figure it out!

by Gary

Back in the late 70's I purchased a 2-barrel kit from SOTZ,I set it up in my basement in Indiana, it was a L-shaped Ranch. I dropped down my forced air heating vents and vented out my chimney to the fire place vent above.
The first month of using it, my gas bill dropped about $200., it went down to $19.16.
They came out in the middle of the month and changed the gas meter, the next month it was about the same, around $20.00. The gas man came to my door when they read the meter again and asked me"What the Hell are you using to heat this house"?
When I showed him he said he was going to get one himself.
I also had a 30-gal in my garage.
I was more than satisfied with the product.

WARNING: the term 'blow-torch' is misleading..no such thing as a dual-purpose $ex toy. TAKE MY ADVICE NEW

dont know about u guys & gals..but last time i checked, a BARREL STOVE is what u would call your overly-rotund, fat f*** of an uncle, who has a serious drinking problem to the point where his own digestion system now collects disability due to the incessant abuse it has sustained over the years..& as a result, it naturally has a hard time keeping up with the sheer endless flow of MGD & occasional bottles of Jack he funnels down his gullet in between breaths. this causes it to build up in his mid-section (what he calls his "beer baby"), bearing the resemblance of what u & i would call "a barrel".. he accompanies this by burning whole-packs of Winstons at a time (as part of a well-balanced diet) in his mouth-hole while engulfing [what i would presume to be] his "lungs" in the plumes of smoke..(3,275 ppl die from smoke-inhalation yearly according to a 2016 Gallup Poll. why he is not 1 of them, your guess is as good as mine). in other words, he is the quintessential 'chimney smoker'..if ive not made that painfully obvious. hence, the man is ultimately, a 'Barrel Stove'.. if nothing else. also his name is Darrel. -just FYI.
