Thank you. I guess I could physically measure and see what I come up with. That probably makes the stated size of the Pacific Energy LE at 3.0 even more significant in terms of packing a punch. The shape of the 2450 box is very square, and I have many 20-in logs, approximately 14 cord worth, that would have to be trimmed. I don't even want to begin to count how many logs that is.I'm not sure how the 3.0 cu ft firebox came up for the 3100. I suspect this is old accounting where the entire firebox was measured, including over the baffle. The 3100 has a fairly shallow firebox. Since the 2020 EPA regs came out manufacturers have been better about the actual usable size of the firebox., probably because it is now published in the EPA testing report.
I bet cutting each one of those bunches of those I'll just be remembering this experience, a nightmare that just won't end.
