I finally had the opportunity to load the stove with Ash that I harvested last fall from my friend's property. As a new burner, I hadn't had chance to burn Ash before, as I mostly have Oak and Hickory. I loaded the Ash about 11:00pm and found it burned well through the night, leaving me a nice bed of coals when I awoke at 7:30 this morning. The outside temp was about 35 and my house was a warm and toasty 73 or so. I plan on burning the cord of Ash through the fall before moving on to my stack of Oak and Hickory that have been seasoning in the sun for several years. So far, I have found my experience cutting, splitting, stacking and burning Ash to be quite enjoyable, and just wanted to post a review of what you experienced burners may know already.
