So the Castine was delivered today and was hooked right up to the insulated nearly 30' chimney. It pulls a good draft and my wood is well seasoned (felled early last winter and split immediately). I'm doing the break-in burns now and am on the 2nd one, taking it to 300F for an hour. All the windows are open since it is pretty stinky baking off all the manufacturing oils and such. My first impression is that this stove is fairly difficult to get up to temperature. Perhaps it is because it's the first time I'm using it and I'm being careful not to load it too full of wood per break-in instructions. I did "goose" it by cracking the ashpan door for about 15 seconds when I got it started the second time. Anyone else out there have a Castine that doesn't get up to temperature as fast as you'd like? Any tricks or tips? Also wanted to ask if Castine users out there leave the air supply full open until it hits the temperature they like or do you throttle it back once the fire is off and running. The stove the Castine replaced was an old (20+ year) VC Resolute. Thanks!
