Newbie here who is about to purchase a BK Princess insert (hoping for a spring sale!). I've collected 7 cords of wood since November of 2012 and before I take the next step I'd like to know what it's like to own a cat stove in terms of feeding the beast, hope long it takes you to get a steady fire going before you leave for work, etc. I'd love some member feedback, maybe like what sort of steps/times it takes from a cold stove as well as from a stove that had a fire in it the night before...like: - get up at 7am and open the air dampers full blast for 10min. - 7:10 let the dog back in and with hot coals (in the coldest part of the winter), fully pack the BK with splits. - 7:45 close down the dampers to whatever settings I want the stove to cruise at and go to work. - etc.... Thanks!
