    Well, I've never posted an actual pic of my beloved Jotul, so, tonight, I got off my lazy arse and took care of business. I loaded it with mostly ash, along with two small rounds of apple, took the pics just a couple minutes after loading.

    First, since it's pouring rain here, thought I'd venture out to the porch and show you the stash....

    first is a rack of hardwood, then the "evil outside chimney" that works simply marvelous, then a blue woodbox full of apple, then the boxelder stack.

    and the stove....

    by the way, with all the confusion on ceiling fans, set 'em to blow up, or down, or up, or down, I got so freakin' flabbergasted I have one set each way :)

    I think that is an absolutely fabulous set-up. I can tell that you spent a lot of time planning. I like your idea on the fans! If you don't mind experiment a little. Let us know if that works better than having both run the same direction. By the way I have the same stove and I love it! :)

    That's a nice setup you have there.
    I'm not a big fan of Boxelder, but I love Apple.
    It burns very well and has the best aroma of any wood I can think of.

    The boxelder was free wood, I've been clearing it off my land, and had another piece of property where 5 or 6 pretty big ones had to be removed for placement of a billoard type sign. Anyway, I cut 'em up, split 'em, and just about have it all burned.

    Boxelder burns fast and definitely doesn't smell good when it burns.
