First year's burn = musty smell?

    I ran my stove last night just to give it a test run and it was chilly out. Once the fans kicked on the smell was somewhat musty, kind of like when my furnace first kicks on after being off all summer. I'm wondering if you guys have done anything to make it smell better? Is there something you could stick in the blower area? I'm assuming the smell will go away as it burns, but would love to have a nice smell coming out of there.
