Got a question for people with a Hampton HI300. I built my first fire last night mainly because I wanted to Not really needed in south yet but I got the itch and built a fire. Tried to use the top down method but it did not work out to well. But I was able to get a fire going without too much difficulty. I am using wood cut and stacked since last Feb. Wood seasons pretty quick in the Mississippi Summer I got a good bed of coals and put in three good size splits and some smaller rounds. Did not completely pack the firebox but had it 3/4 full I would say. Stove top temps got up to 400-425 and had some good secondaries going (IMHO). My question to fellow HI300 owners... What are your normal stove top temps when burning? I woke up this morning after not loading the stove all night with a good bed of coals and the stove top was still reading 300.
