    I am in agreement with it being an air leak. You can also try closing the damper earlier. GT around 350 and work your air down from there.

    i noticed with my ash pan that I had to tighten the handle a little bit more than I thought.

    Not much going on with the thread. So after not being able to burn for a few days. I got the stove running with the cooler temps and the stiff wind. I have a load of hickory in right now with a load of oak ready for tonight.. i have it the primary air half way back and the damper fully closed.. you can see the cat going through the slit in the back 20170322_164638.jpg

    Impressive. My stove has gone cold a few times this year. Especially in February when we had that warm spell.
