Quick question for those of you that have experience burning locust. I am burning locust splits in the 3-6" range and 11-15% MC range in my Jotul Castine and have outlined my experience in two different situations below: Locust with other wood mixed in: I have noticed that if I mix the locust with oak, cherry or walnut I can run the stove up to 500-550 degrees and shut the air flow down to 1/4 open and it runs like I am accustomed to seeing the stove cycle with a 4-5 hour burn time with stove top of 550 dropping to 200. Straight Locust: I have noticed that it is more challenging to get the stove up to the 500-550 degree range and then maintain the normal stove cycle range unless I keep the air flow open anywhere from 1/2 to wide open. The burn time seems to fall in the 4-5 hour range but I do have an excessive amount of coals when I go to reload unless I run the air intake open further than the 1/4 that I am accustomed to. To keep the locust burning hot is it normal to provide more air during the burn cycle? Any ideas why I am seeing the difference in operation?
