    I removed the Resolute Acclaim and will be getting it ready for sale after I go threw it. Not an easy task,
    horsing these 400 lb plus beast around. The Encore is in place and hooked up to the connector pipe, I could fire it now.

    I will be making tweaks and rebuilding the two front door and glass gasketing. I still indend to replace the griddle gasket.
    I may replace the cat combustor as well but it is not bad.

    At my house I need an open permit and just add to it and pay the fees. It will be permitted and inspected. Really nothing changed but the model of the stove.It is sitting in the exact location as the Resolute Accclaim. About 18" of connector pipe straight out be back into a separate 8/8 clay flue. Naturally with the 1/4" per ft pitch upward. Roo it will be fired up soon enough, but not when it is fairly hot and humid. Man thoses things are heavy. I'm feelling it now. I have a brand new ceramic enamal top for the Resolute Acclaim to install. While apart it will be fully cleaned and blow gun blown out. There will not be one chip on the entire surface after the new top is installed.
