    This is the first real full load in the King this season,splits 10 inches wide,and a huge locust round along with some filler pieces,white oak left to right,locust far right bottom,and locust twigs on top about 80lbs.I'll be warm till tomorrow at this time. Instant ignition on a 2 in. bed if hot ashes.

    Rock on! Did you weigh it?

    Nevermind. I actually read your post instead of just looking at pictures.

    Thats a big load of good wood, starting to get cold, Ive broken out the oak too, saving the locust for below 10 degrees.
    Looks like you could fit a couple more small pieces on top.

    Cool, six splits to fill the king means those splits are huge. I can fit almost a dozen "regular" splits in the princess.

    Awesome......gotta love when you can just park the truck at the back of the stove and pack the whole damm load in it!
    I love the burn time on those BK's!

    Big splits for sure! Do you have a lot of ash in the stove? I "thought" the King had 9 inches below the door, enough room for another layer of splits.

    Nice load. I've run into some larger splits in my shed that I'm burning but not quite as big as those. Seems to me size doesn't matter with this stove, whether I load it up full with 6 splits or 12 splits I can still get over 24 hours.
