    So i was thinking about my CAT stove as the temperature starts falling later in the burn cycle when I am either not going to reload it (shoulder season letting the fire go out). If I wait until the probe thermometer is above 500 to close the bypass and engage the CAT, shoudl I reopen the bypass once the temperature falls back down below 500 again? My thoughts are it would prevent the CAT from being clogged up when it's not burning off the impurities, but then again late in the burn cycle over a bed of coals there isn't that much there anyway.

    Just wonder if anyone else has some thoughts experience etc.
