Apparently I am the ONLY one disappointed in the fireview. So either I am doing something wrong or my drafty house is just too much for this thing. What stove top temps are you guys seeing after 4-5 hours of burning? My stove drops to about 250 and stays there for hours and hours on end. I could deal with it IF I could reload the stove with more wood, but there is so much cinder that I am lucky to get 3 splits in the box. The stuff in the back of the stove cinders forever. I am burning assorted maples, red oak, ash, beech, black cherry, and a little birch. I may be using 1/2 the wood but I am using 2-3 times the oil just to keep the house at a balmy 64 with this 10-25 degree weather. I'm glad I kept the dragon in storage. It is going back in this week.
