    I have a Jotul 602 and it has a small firebox. I have to reload it a few times through the night. Does anyone have a tip for getting your wood to last longer overnight? I tried burning some crotches and unsplit logs. Other than that just dampering it down to make them last. Any suggestions?

    Other than burning crotches and other large, gnarly pieces of wood, it's tough for me to suggest anything to extend burn time. (Other than damping it down of course)


    Hopefully someone else can help

    602 is a great little stove, keyword is little
    Firebox is just too small for overnight burns

    You may have slightly better luck if you can split sides off of round logs to get square centers. Ideally, you would have the largest square possible to fit through the door, or be able to stack the smaller squares tightly. These would do slightly better than rounds. Using slightly wet wood and the densest / heaviest wood you have will help maximize the time, too. But nothing will work miracles if you are coming up several hours short every night.
