    I had small fires for a week prior to burning hot and long term. Just start it up slowly so that your bricks have time to cure properly.

    Yep. Build you a small fire tonight and get ready to open the doors and windows. It's gonna smell bad around there for a bit. Both the paint and other materials will cook off some stuff with the first few fires. I do three increasingly hotter fires with a new stove and figure when the smell goes away it is good to go for regular hotter burns.

    Use the break-in fires to check for air leaks around the doors, glass and liner connection while you are at it.

    It will smell for a long time if it's painted. Some smell more than others. BrotherBart is right, crack some windows and try to ignore it. Once you have a few roaring fires it will fade away.
