I have a small woodstove and a small cabin, so I want something small in an ash bucket, too. The ones I've seen are really big, and judging by the size from pictures is difficult. Is there something you'd suggest for me?

Most standard ash buckets are designed to hold approximately 6 gallons. A smaller model that we carry is the Minuteman ASH-01 All Black Ash Bucket - Black
. This model holds closer to 4.5 gallons and has a shorter height of 12 inches.

I am looking for an ash bucket that won't get roaring hot on the bottom. Last year, I used a pot (stew) and it got so hot it burned a round spot in my carpet.

You're most likely interested in one of our double-bottom ash buckets. For example, our Napa Forge Vintage Iron Ash Bucket with Lid
features a dual bottom for added durability and reduced heat transfer.
All the same, you should never place any ash bucket on carpet or other combustible surfaces.
