Hi, I’m trying to understand how to control the burn rate on the Lopi Evergreen. It says highest burn rate is to pull the handle all the way out and slowest is pushed all the way in. The part the seems to stump me is the middle. It says to only pull it out 5/16”, which definitely isn’t the middle of the travel. I’m wondering what others have experienced as far as a middle goes. I’d also like to know how you setup your over night fires. Do you burn on high for 15-20mins then set it to all the way low for overnight? Any tips would be appreciated.

Sorry to see this didn't get answered. With good draft shutting down the air control until it is just slightly open is common. It depends on the strength of the draft. In colder weather, you may be able to close it off completely and still have good secondary combustion.
