    the foxfire internals are pretty much the same as the agp... mine continues to throw the flashing red light code even on pgm 3... seems more frequent during temp transitions such as call for heat from the t-stat from standby, changes in room fan settings and going into standby mode when t-stat...

    Ash comparison of Stove Chow, Green Supreme, TSC white/blue bag

    I tried a few tons of newps in the past and considered them mediocre at best but I have also seen worse.. this years green supremes I got at Lowes are not like I remembered newps in the past .. even (small) sizing, light color (less bark?) 6 bags burned and very acceptable amount of ash and...

    HD Stove Chow @ Middletown NY 9/6/18

    ended up with 3 tons of lignetic-newps from Lowes... so far heat was adequate and ash \ soot on glass have been pretty low .. I am not a fan of newps based on prior experience but now that lignetics owns them they may have stepped up the QC... in any case 3 tons is more than enough for the...
