I have about 7 face cords of good dry hardwood in the garage. I didn't burn nearly as much to heat the garage as I had anticipated. I also have a half tank or about 125 gallons of kerosene for my old Toyostove (like a Monitor). I estimated that I would need 3 tons of coal to heat for Nov. - March. Last summer I bought 4 tons of pea coal just to be on the safe side.
Now the weather is getting warmer and I have about 2 tons of coal left. So, I figure that if I start burning wood when I am home, and let the Toyostove run when I am away, I will not have to buy any coal for next year. When the Toyostove dies, or when I run out of Keros. then that is the end of that heating sourse because I don't plan to replace either one. I get enough free wood to cary me through spring, fall and intermittent workshop heating for as long as I am able to cut it up and truck it away.
My question is, can owners of Hitzer 30-95s or simmilar stoves give me any pointers for draft, damper settings or anything else for burning wood as efficiently as possible
I am more interested in long burns than great heat output. I have a lot of experience burning wood in wood stoves, but not in burning wood in a coal stove, or with a baro damper in the stove pipe.
