    Wow, what a great video, perhaps our mods will find it deserving of a sticky!
    Wish there was a similar video for a Cat stove. (or maybe there is?)
    and one comparing the two methods, for that matter, comparing the two types against an older stove type. Very interesting. Thanks for posting it.

    Edit: sorry, I posted my reply after this sat on my screen for a while and before there were several new replies I had not seen!

    BG is that 2nd video yours? The name is essential the same as your name here b3gr33n... I know you have a T-6 but thought you may have had a Jotul at one time..

    Yes, the Castine was predecessor to the T6.

    So I just bought and installed an RSF Delta 2. I'm assuming that it will do secondary burn, but I'm not sure... I sure didn't see anything about this when I bought it!

    Thoughts?

    Thanks,

    Sam

    What am I doing wrong if I am not getting secondary burns like that?

    It seems like I will get them early on, but when my box is heated up, maybe 4-5 hours into the burn, they are not that crazy like in the video.

    You are not doing anything wrong. Strong visual secondary combustion only occurs while the wood is rapidly outgassing and being reburned as secondary combustion. This only lasts a short while, maybe 30 min in a small firebox and 60-90 minutes in a large one. At 4 hrs into the burn the wood has completely outgassed and only charcoal is burning.

    That was a pretty cool video. Now if you will excuse me I have to go add some combustible cellulose cylinders to my high Performance Combustion Machine. ;-)
