i have a blazeking royal heir (the big one) i forget the model, i know there was two. anyway. i bought the unit used last year and i had a creosote problem where i had to clean pipes at least once a month. a week or so ago i took the combuster out and it was absolutely thrashed! now i know why my pipes needed cleaned once a month. anyway money is tight here and i am wondering if i can burn this stove without the combuster for a couple .. months. at least till i can afford one. i know what the combuster would do if i had a new one. but.. here is the 100 dollar question. what is the difference in burning without one and burning with a totally thrashed one like i did last year? is it a fire hazzard without it? i know it is best to burn with the proper equipment but i might need to go a month or two without it.. please be honest. is it a big hazzard? wouldnt it actually be better to burn wothout it as compared to a totally thrashed one?
