    Yeah, who knows anymore. Maybe we should all go back to the old days before they had thermometers and just burn the damn wood.

    ooh i know exactly what you are saying!
    i have a lot of ammo to load but i am worried about committing to a certain load, as i fear i will find out later that it is not as good as another load i could use.

    I don't have a thermometer. There's a window on my stove. I look at the fire. If things seem too hot, I close the air down.

    I almost bought a thermometer a while back. It seemed like everyone here is using them. Then I noticed how many people's thermometers don't work.

    To be fair, I pretty much never have to run this thing very hard. It's oversized for the the house in a mild climate.

    I look for my normal "position" and some at the temp to know if all is going "normal"

    I can tell if the EPA stove is running well by looking outside. Then note "position" or temp ;)

    By the way I have the second one.... And that looks hot !

    I have two thermometers also...they are usually pretty close,,,checked them both in the oven,still very close. I just use them for a ballpark number. Gotta get a temp. gun, its the only way to go.
