    That will answer a lot of questions for people who wonder how these things work.

    I did notice that it was actually consuming the wood. What's the time span on those pictures...like 3 days between each? ;-P

    RoosterBoy The Summit has a burn chamber/baffle , square box at the top. ( no burn tubes )

    At the start of the fire the damper was open and once you see the flames mushroom at the top is when it was dampered down to about 1/4 open.


    Gunner Verklempt, me too .........just brings a tear to your eye. I was amazed all over again.

    Warren I agree , I just sat there and watched so i thought wile i was there i would just get the camera out and take pictures from the start of small coal logs to the load of 2 bigger logs. over 3 hours. the whole load lasted almost 10 hours , about 1 hour 15min for the coal logs to burn down and then the two larger logs was in for a little over 8 hours going down to coal enough to relight.

    After the pictures of the 3 hour span (3 1/2- 4 hours) the fire dance was a lot less down to more of a blue flame on the logs with smaller wisps of yellow flame at the top.


    DonCT I agree , its amazing and mesmerizing . It did get a litte warm for a wile but i wanted to watch a fire dance to start off the year. As most know a lot of the show is at the top/middle with the help from the secondary burning and being dampered down its a slow dance of flames and not as violent as it looks.

    LOL , Roo always has goose bumps and is cold, she loves the fire. I'm just one of the kids with different "toys" , She like this toy tho .

    Spike likes it 70° and Roo likes it 80° so about 74° is where we stand in the winter.

    I printed some of the pics out on the color laser and taped them to the glass on all three stoves. It is getting warmer in here already.

    I swear I have been hanging out here way too much. I used to just cut the wood in the spring, forget about it until November and then hold out as long as I could before starting to use it up.

    Joined hearth.com and now one stove turned into three. Liners jammed in the chimneys and I am sitting here in my 72 degree office and keep staring at the stove wanting to light a freakin fire!

    I feel like the Feds are gonna raid the joint any minute and arrest me for being a cult member.

    ...and your honor, we also have a particularly damming video of a quite large fire burning at the Virgina residence of the accused, dated July 5th...

    "And on the eighth day, He created the Pacific Energy Summit. And He looked upon the secondary combustion and saw that it was good."

    "And he said unto Noah, go forth and gather two splits of each kind of wood. It is only a forty day cruise but it will be cold out there. Trust in me. I know of these things. And when designing the ark, be ye mindful of all codes and clearances to combustibles. The Ark Angel Elk will be along to inspect. And Noah was visited three times by the Ark Angel who failed him on the occupancy permit, twice. Clearances were one third of a cubit out of compliance with code."

    I am proud to bring a little levity into our First Responders' day. BTW: Whose night is it to wash the dishes?

    Here is a picture of the wood stove a local fire company was using to heat the fire hall. They actually sold it to somebody last week in a auction as part of the building of their new building. Drumming up business I guess.

    We have fire preventioned ourselves out of jobs. Sometimes we just have to do what we can to stay busy...Hahaha (Just kidding!)

    Seriously... They really did sell that POS? Unbelieveable. I can see some litigation stemming from the sale of that.
    It just so happens to be my cook day. But, I've done my share of dishes. (Probie!!) But, since I am now a Lieutenant.... Rank does have its priviledge

    I rolled the dice on the Porcelain Enamel and especially being Sunset Red in color........ The shop i went to didnt have any in stock at the time and all i had to go by was the hand out book. The sales man asked me three time if i was sure i wanted to go with the Sunset red color. I thought that was odd. I ended up calling the PE company 800 hotline and asked about the color and they said it was one of the best colors but people get cold feet when ordering RED on any appliance.

    I was brave and stood my ground and held my chin high ( and worried like he(( for a few months when it was on order ) WOW was all i could say when i seen it in person. Not one ounce of regret.

    "Sun set red" and "red" are not even in the same ball park in color. maroon would be more like it and when the stove has a fire in it the Porcelain Enamel gets a darker deep maroon.

    {Wikipedia, encyclopedia} Maroon is a color mixture composed of brown and purple. Although conceptually a color mixture, it can be regarded as a dark (and possibly also desaturated) shade of red. Derived from French marron ("chestnut"), it didn't become a color-word in English until ca. 1791.

    I am new to all this. Can someone explain to me a secondary burn? Is this specific to the Pacific Energy Summit stove?

    The Pacific Energy stove has a secondary burn chamber and a lot of us call it a non-cat stove. There are other stoves that are non cat with the secondary burn chamber.

    Here is a thread to got you started. If you have any more question ...Just ask away.
