CUBIC MINI: GRIZZLY

Small Stove Review

The Grizzly is the big brother of the cub. Its slightly large firebox gives it a longer burn times and a bit more heat output. This solid little stove is well built and attractive. The Grizzlies small weight and size make it perfect for spaces like sailboats and RV’s where weight and size are a concern.

    1. Hi Bob-

      Cubic Mini doesn’t recommend using elbows at all when installing their stoves, but quite a few folks have done exactly that using our kits. Two 45 degree elbows seem to work fine as long as the flue system is otherwise well designed. We even have an adapter to make it easier to use our parts with cubic mini’s odd-sized flue flange. Check out our 3″ flue parts here:

    1. Hi Kevin-

      Burn time on all small stoves is going to be limited by firebox size. Having a stove this small that won’t overheat a very small space has the trade-off that it won’t burn very long without stoking. Folks we’ve talked to who have the Grizzly tell us that they can usually get around two hours of burn time without stoking if they load up the firebox and tighten down the air controls. If this is your only heat source, definitely plan on getting up a few times for an overnight burn, or just bundle up and restart the stove in the morning.
