    That's a good looking installation right there. As long as you adhere to the operating/startup instructions, everything should work just fine. Just realize that once the pellets are first fed into the hopper they will smoke-fill the entire inside of the stove but once it ignites into flames, you'll be good to go.

    Best of luck this winter!

    yep the first start to every burn produces the most smoke, then there is virtually no smoke during burning

    like that install

    If the stove shop burned it on a higher heat setting for that three hours
    then the paint should be cured and you're all set. I'd crank it to a higher
    heat setting just to be sure. Have fun!

    I'll second that! Bought Harman XXV last October and it was the best $3k I've ever spent. Makes the cold NH winter much more enjoyable.

    The Crapsman prybar will be your friend, and lose the harman tool.

    Funny you say that. My first year I burned Canadian pellets, I forget the brand and I had no problem scraping the burnpot with the Harman tool. Last year I burned Corinth wood pellets and the buildup was hard as a rock and it took a flathead screwdriver driven by a hammer to remove the crap.

    The stove shop uses a similar pry bar (from the automotive tool section in Sears) & said it works better than the provided tool. That's why I'm already prepared. Good idea to lose the other tool as we won't be using it.
