    The stove was cool enough when I got home tonight to take out the baffle, and get all the ash swept up & out. Reinstalled said boost baffle correctly :) I hadn't cleaned it since the end of November.

    Not to bad, but glad I did it, mostly build up on the outsides of the firebox front, including the 2 holes on the farthest left & right of the baffle. This would explain the lack of air flow on the outside of the firewood that I was seeing before. Also explains the coaling problem I was having, again on the outside areas. .

    We're going down to 40ish tonight, and I think the PE is going to be called on to do the job for the whole house.

    It's burning wayyyy better ;-)
