    Tent stoves are different than home stoves. Even my Cubic Mini is too heavy to be used as a tent stove, unless it’s going to be a permanent setup like in a yurt. There are reputable dedicated tent stove manufacturers like Riley Stove Company, Four Dog Stoves and even ultralight titanium tent stoves from Pomoloy. An Amazon search will get you lots of hits on other tent stove options.

    How big a tent? Are you backpacking, horse/quad camping or drive up camping? Makes a big difference on what kind of stove. I have a 12'X14'x5' side wall tent which we used for fall/winter, drive to camping. I have an old Elkhorn stove (no longer manufactured). It is a rectangular stove with 2 wings to enlarge the top. It is moderately large and heavy and put out a lot of heat. It could, and did, double as an extra cook surface to keep coffee and stew hot. It would not usually keep fire overnight (you need a very large firebox for that) but most tent stoves won't unless you stuff them full very late and get up very early. I will pull it out and take a few pictures. If you are looking for a stove for a larger tent for other than backpacking, then there are a bunch of suitable ones out there. Kwick Kamp has some nice stoves for sale. If you need a small, fairly light weight stove, then a small version of the famous Sheep Herder stove would work. If you want some ultra lite, tiny techno wood burner then I have no ideas. A lot of them would be no better than expensive toys I would guess.
