Hi All! This is my first season with my Hearthstone Phoenix (Hand me down from my father who never used it) and I’m having real issues getting long burn times/ stove top temps getting too high. I reached out to another member a few weeks ago for some advice on getting longer more controlled burns and after implementing some new techniques I’m still getting way too hot of stove top temps. Everytime I go to load up the stove onto some coals (stove top around 250-300 and flue 200-250), 3-4 medium/large splits of white oak (that’s my firebox filled up), all parallel not cross crossed, let a flame start, close up the door w/open air, let chimney get to about 300-325 and start cutting it back with lazy flames. Stove temps are usually not getting above 300-350 at this point. I keep lazy and small flames through this whole process. Eventually get the air control almost completely shut down, chimney around 300 but the stove will keep climbing 600+. I eventually end up opening the door flooding the firebox with cool air to get these temps down and basically waste wood. I’m sure if I just let it have its way I could see 650-700. I’m not understanding what else I can do to keep these stove temps down and get longer burns. I’ve heard a damper on the chimney can help? I really have no idea any input would be really appreciated. Thanks!!
