    I'd place the thermometer on the top step about 6" from the flue for the hottest readings. What temperatures are you seeing there and at what stage is the fire?

    I'm no expert (1st year burner) so this may not mean much. I got into my first multi-day burning this weekend and found the hottest spot for my thermometer (QF 4300 w/fan, ash pan & legs) to be just above the door on the left side front of the stove. I also have one on the stack about 24" above the unit.

    I 'thought' putting the thermometer on the top step would not truly reflect the heat of the firebox, due to the fact that the fan blows on the bottom of that plate to eject the heat into the room. I pretty much assumed the same about the lower plate as the air coming off the bottom of the upper step crosses the top of the lower step.

    I look forward to hearing more about others thoughts on this.
