    No..you can get the stove to transfer more heat by blowing across it..I agree with that.
    I guess a misunderstanding ..i was not including the t-stat in the experiment...which would be all most impossible to do with a BBK...maybe turned all the way up..but I don't want to melt my steel! lol.

    The colder the room relative to the stove the more it will transfer also...but the fire won't change..without a t-stat anyways.

    I love a hearty debate!
    My wife says I'm a master debater!

    Anyways since we do agree on the above situation..would you also agree that putting gallons of cold water on top a wood stove would not slow the fire down?

    In a container of course.

    Slow a fire down, no.....cool the stove top off while the fire comes down to earth, yes.......I assume you're talking about a stove without a t-stat again in a thread about a BK stove which has a t-stat correct? :lol:

    Just talking theory.

    So you both agree that water on a stove will not change the fire in the stove then?
    I doubt if the water deal would effect the t-stat ..but I suppose it could if there was maybe 100 galls of it..lol.
