Likes: great stove, been a wood burner for 40 years.this one is the best.

Dislikes: windows get dirty.

Comments: if you have the time and like to keep the windows clean.
1. build a fire in the back 2-4 splits.
2. keep the front doors cracked and damper wide open.
3. around 200f start to add more wood and close door.
4. when you have a good bed of ash and add more wood leave
door crackes until you have a good flame.
I always stay near the stove when the doors are open.

best way yet to keep my 400 windows clean.
