In my stove is a hot cat. If I take the combustor scoop out of the way, you think I can cook a hot dog in there?

Ran a load of mostly 4-5 year old white oak last night. This morning the T-stat read 73 in the house and 31 or so outside. Cat was still at 550 after an 11 hour burn. Gotta love it. Wish I had more of this white oak. Splits are nice and uniform. Burns forever to. The morning load.... a mix of shorts and uglies.

Yeah, I call that stuff the King of All Firewoods. >> When I see a BTU list with it equal to Red Oak, I chuckle and say "OK then, I'll trade ya some Red for your White."

Im on the coal end of a load of post oak that the wife put in around noon. I got a load of red and black jack oak on deck for the overnight hours going in around 9:30.

I had a dragon in mine this afternoon. I had a funny branch of old live oak that I threw on top of coals. When it was offgassing at first, it actually spat out a horizontal flame. I didn't catch that in the picture, but I think the glowing eye shows up. My kids were pretty excited. 0130201357.jpg
