    I bought a few packs of these due to a shortage of seasoned wood later in the heating season....I figured about mid Febuary. I threw one in earlier today to see what it does. Stove was at 400::F.....nice bed of hot coals....throw in one brick....flames develop around bottom....then up sides and ends....they roll around the top and flame about 5 inces high.....one hour into the burn....stove temps at 301::F....and the brick is a smoldering block.....what gives ????....the air was full bore......thru in a piece of Hickory to finish the smoldering block.

    Burn two at a time close together, if they are like Ecobricks they burn better with "friends".

    I have the Ecos and another brands where the bricks are half size. If I put in 2 small bricks with a split in between the stove is off to the races. Don't under estimate those fellows. Too many and you could have a runaway mess on your hand. Last night I did a reload with 2 bricks and 4 splits. Hr later I found myself putting foil of the secondary inlets to getter slowed down. That was damper and primary full shut.
