    To me, coals in the stove represent an active stove, if for no other reason than it hasn't cooled down much yet, and you can start getting more heat out of it by just throwing in a few chunks of wood. If the stove is out, however, getting warm from it is going to take some work and some time, and I never have any of that to spare in the morning. So I think a stove containing coals is worth a lot more than a dead one.

    That's my definition of burn time too. If I have to do more than rake the coals and load up, the burn time has expired! It may not be throwing much heat at that point, but to me burn time and heat time are not always the same. Might not be heating, but I would still consider it to be "burning".
