    Congrats Iceman!!!!! Looks beautiful, and excellent install by your installer.
    You WILL love that Summit. The list of Summit owners is growing at a fairly good rate. There is a reason for that.
    Not to say there isn't other quality stoves & inserts out there. Now get to know her, and by next year you will get even longer burn times and know her like the back of your hand. This year will be a learn & burn year. Did you adjust the door?
    Looking good. We will be sending you out your Summit secret decoder ring and Beast burner package. Learn the secret Summit handshake also :).

    When your fire is out and the stove is at room temperature, close the door on a $20 dollar bill and tug, repeating this step all the way around the perimeter of the door. PE's new low-compression gasket should grip the bill, and offer a bit of resistance to your tug. If the grip on the bill feels loose at any point, tap lightly on the door catch (just outside the door opening on the handle side) with a hammer and retest, repeating until you have a firm seal all the way around the perimeter. If you tap too hard and the door handle won't engage, pry the catch back out a bit.

    Once your door is properly adjusted, put the $20 in an envelope, and address to:

    Thanks for the tip, Tom

    Nice stove. Hell-of-a break-in fire! And I do remember that "day the install is finished and first fire" feeling. I may have to buy a summit for my upstairs fireplace, just to experience the whole thing again myself... :wow:

    But then... that would mean chopping twice the wood here in the heart of the 'burbs. Not such a good feeling...

    I am glad to see you are enjoying your new insert, sounds like its working as you hoped it would. Yes that is one big chimney it was easy to find the right flue I just looked for the clean one of the six. What a nice bonus, a fireplace that has never been burned,kept me clean while doing the install. Thanks to all for the compliments on the install, I always take pride in my work so it is nice to have it noticed. I do add comments to some of the posts now and then and I do enjoy reading them also. I have learned a lot here and enjoy the site.
