Hello all- Still getting used to how the new 30 burns... pretty easy to start (good wood helps), takes a little bit to get hot, but once it does it's nice. The secondary light show is interesting as well. In my old smoke dragon, I knew that I needed a consistent stovetop of 550-600 to warm up the house, and 450-500 would do to keep it warm once there. However, the 30 SEEMS to want to hold 400-450; if I stoke it full and get it up to 550-600, the 1st floor of our 2600sf becomes uncomfortable pretty quick. If I let it burn hot for a while, even the heat-seeking Meezer cats beg for mercy. I knew how to manage the air in my dragon to hold temp, but am having a lot of trouble getting the 30 to behave. I even tried getting it to 550-600 and shutting the air completely; when I do this it drops quickly to 400 or so, and only holds temp for an hour or so. Any guidance for this 30 rookie?
