Seems that stovetop likes to stay around 550, which is plenty to heat the house. 'Course, I was hoping for snow this weekend to test things out but was disappointed.
Also still need to relearn fire management... this thing burns totally different than the dragon.
Ok here's all you need to know about burning in your new stove:
â€¢Burn a beer can to keep the chimney clean
â€¢Stick a green round in there with each load to slow the burn
â€¢Never burn pine
â€¢A good hot controlled chimney fire will clean that chimney in no time
â€¢Cut split and stack all your wood for the winter in October
â€¢Just put one or two splits on the fire at a time
â€¢Never take advise front anyone named Bart
Stick to these foundational truths and you'll be warm all winter long.
Dang, I'm not doing any of these things. No wonder the house is cold all the time.
Except for the beer can, that pretty much describes me two years ago.
Hogs why didn't you help the man with his clearance non issues while you were there.
I only took care of the tough stuff...
Glad to see you were able to get everything loaded and unloaded in once piece.
Your a good man.
I was all worth every nickel and minute, I think. House is steady at 74, secondaries are churning on only my second load of the day... I'm gonna go for an all-nighter tonight and see what happens.
I am gonna close this one and let the traffic go to Blue's other thread on the subject.
