    Welcome to the Woodstock family. You'll LOVE that stove, beautiful install too! Yeah, ceiling fan will help a lot, like BG said, probably set on updraft will work best.

    Definitely sounds like wet wood. You really need good dry Hardwood to get the full benefit of this stove. If all you have is less than seasoned wood try burning with smaller splits and more air.

    Randy, like Todd said, your wood is definitely still a bit green. When it is dry that stove will amaze you even more. With 425 and only 1/4 full firebox that isn't bad but the 1 1/2 hours of hissing worries me a bit. Definitely make certain there is no hissing before engaging the cat. or you will have problems. If I were you I'd try to find some good seasoned wood for this year and use what you have on hand for next year. Then you'll get full benefit from the stove with no worries and you'll also stay warmer. Good luck.
