A little secondary combustion anyone? Stove top temps around 750 degrees. I know, most of you cringe at that, but this is where she maintains secondary the best. These temps are supported by the manufacturer, so I'm not too concerned. The firebox on this stove is very small, so aggressive burning is required to pre-heat for the secondary system. I think the Thelin stove is one of the more unusual stoves on the market. Comments and comparisons welcomed. If this picture post goes well, more to come. Enjoy.
