I come to the Experts with a question about my hearth. I just bought a house with this hearth in the master bedroom. It has been cleaned by a chimney cleaner and I started a fire in and had about 20 minutes of white smoke. I used fat sticks from Plow & Earth and newspaper to start it. Any suggestions on getting a better fire started? I also have an insert in my main chimney. The cleaner told me it didn'y have a flue insert so it would be difficult to clean properly.How hard is it to find a flue insert and how much do they cost? Thanks- Josh.
