I'm a newbie with my Buck Stove 74. Before getting it, I read as much info as possible and watched lots of "how to" videos on starting my fire and using my stove. I've only had it for 2 weeks and I feel like I've come a long way since the first day. I think one mistake I may have been making from the beginning was expecting to have a roaring fire the entire time. I would get frustrated when it wasn't and constantly poking it, tending it, etc. which was exhausting. I would wonder how in the world yall were getting wood to burn with big rolling flames for 8 hours. Now I'm wondering if that's not the case. I can keep smallish flames going, or have very red hot coal logs with blue flames skimming the top and I'm up to getting it to last 5 hours before reloading. The fire seems to go through cycles, and sometimes dying down quite a bit but then builds up, etc. So my question for you experienced burners is beyond the initial start-up, what does your fire look like? Pictures would be super helpful. I want to make sure I'm on the right path.
