Hey all. New to wood stoves and this forum. Just wondering if anyone has any info on these old Aurora inserts. From what I can tell, Aurora went out of business in the early '80s but the product is good. The previous owner had put a grate in the unit which, after discovering fire brick in the bottom, I promptly removed. Is it supposed to have brick on the sides? Mine is set in to a block/stone/crock chimney so I feel confident running her good and hot. It's been going down to the low 20s here in east TN and I can comfortably keep it 78 (and up to 82 on occasion). Currently burning partially seasoned hickory, oak and fully seasoned magnolia. Any pointers, tips, knowledge, general info, etc... would be greatly appreciated.
