That's what happens to mine if I lower the air too soon.

Something I have noticed from some people's posts, I get secondaries very early in the burn cycle even with a cold stove, right around 300 or so and...
What brand of stove pipe, might be the paint, I do not have that.
I pretty much let the stove do its thing but at about 650 (surface single wall I like to idle it down and then the stove plays catch up.
It may be...
BG's PE seems to run with cooler flue temps if I remember correctly but many report high flue temps, its not just PE's either.
I have asked this...
Not sure who told you that, green wood or wood that's just wet from rain or snow is not a good idea, water don't burn.
My flue temp goes up no matter how I run the stove, big loads, small loads it don't matter, if I want a hot fire I am going to have a hot flue.
I know some don't agree with the times for drying wood but this is from woodheat.org
"Some people like to cover the drying wood pile. I do not. I’m...
Well I travel for work and I have seen lots of wood stacked with no top cover so it must work in many places.
Well it should be fine since the EPA stoves are tested with 20% wood and that's whats recommended.
Not sure how I have been doing it for over 30 years with no problems.:confused:
For sure what is wrong with 15 to 19%?
So your flue temp is low? Mine runs high with the new stove and have no idea why and cant seem to find any body with any idea either.
If you don't need the pipe for clearance issues you wont gain any thing.
What is your flue temp when burning, been using regular stove pipe for over 30 years and no creosote in the pipe.
You avoid creosote by burning with a warm flue and dry wood.
Well I guess its a true berm, we built the dirt up around it.
All the south glass makes it hard to heat when its real cold but working on getting...
I find that interesting, any one venture to guess why, don't know much about how this stove is built.
Yea 16% on the outside might not be dry enough.
Well send me a piece and I will check it with mine.;)
Will 200 degrees cook it off cause that's what they claim how warm they get.
2500 sq feet, berm house (walk in basement) with insulation on the outside of the block walls, big heat sink, below zero temps with a south wind are...
If that's coming out of the chimney and the pine burst into flames right away it very well could be, pine that dry can off gas very quickly causing...

OTR=ITC Off the rails = in the can:)
Wait There's Fire?
I did some testing a couple of years ago and even at 22% my wood did not sizzle, its reported on wood burning sites it happens above 25%.
I wonder if...
The non cat EPA stoves are known for doing this, some conditions can make it worse (pens post)
