    Cold Chimney Syndrome

    Do a top down with a starter, like a Super Cedar. It will light the kindling more readily and you will not have to futz with the heat gun. Shawn

    to use or not to use stove fan

    I bought and use the fan designed for the stove. I have noticed a considerable difference in the warm air that rises to the upper living level. I have a radiant stove, the Manny, and by putting the stove fan on it I also have convection. I was unsure what to do, I finally bit the bullet, and...

    Homeowners Insurance..... Cancelled Because of Wood Usage

    So if you had answered 2 cords you would have been fine???? That is strange. I wonder if they ask other home owners how much fuel oil they burn in a winter? There are a bunch of ins. companies who don't give 2 s*#ts how much you burn. I guess they really didn't want your buisness.

    New here. Thanks to everyone.

    Welcome to the forum Brian... You may soon become "obsessed" as my wife calls me. Burning is not just a money saver for me, it has become a way of life.

    I have a damper and haven't "needed" it yet. I sorta think of it as an insurance policy to a run away. Inexpensive, easy to use, insurance policy. Although do to BrowningBar, I am now experimenting using it some.

    Super Cedars from Northwestern Fuels

    Fredo, Break them into quarters, and extend those suckers. No need for a full puck. At least not with good seasoned wood.

    Cold Chimney Syndrome

    Try the top down, maybe it works, maybe it doesn't but heck it is worth a try. Set it up, light the knots, and immediately close the door. If it works great, if not, no big deal.

    Question for other stoners.. Pics Added..

    I would guess... since I do not have this steamer... that you are simply seasoning it like a cast iron pan. If that is the case I would follow the instructions and use an oven.. Not worry much about smoke, don't go above the 350. That is my take, I have a porcelain coated steamer, so no...
