Hi, All - New to this forum, so apologize if any of my questions are redundant! I am returning to the use of my woodstoves this winter. Live in a house that formerly was a store downstairs and apartment upstairs. Downstairs has a Shenandoah barrel stove, upstairs a small Vermont Castings stove. Never used the latter, as the wood we had previously too large. We're set now for this year. However, using the Shenandoah, the tough part about it is keeping any kind of flame going past a couple of hours. Real pain at nighttime during a power outage! House is backed up with electric baseboard, but I want to cut that out as much as possible. Any ideas for how to maintain a flame in this stove? I don't have the means to replace it this year. Thanks for your help!
