Thanks for the suggestions, the second load that didn’t last as long and was set way back temp wise was running in the active zone and cat was glowing, however it’s possible after a few hours it got chocked out while I was sleeping. Next time I’ll keep things at #1 and tweak from there. Still too “ warm” out for us to run the stove for primary heat, I just wanted to check the operation before real Alaskan winter hitsYes,
Very few BK’s can be run below the 2 oclock setting, you need to find the sweet spot for your setup (everyone’s situation is different)..
Once you find the spot on your dial that you cannot go below without losing your CAT you’re golden..
Also, you posted this in the wrong place, this should be in the section above this one, you’ll get more replies there !!/
edit : And BTW welcome..
also your stove will burn much better when all is loaded n/s..
