Test Fire the Pocono Outside?

PostBy: Uglysquirrel On: Sun Jul 12, 2009 6:51 pm

Some past discussions suggested firing a new stove outside to burn off the paint smell, I'm of some opinion that putting a 8'-12' stack of black stove pipe on the top vent with some guy wires may not give an ample draft but then what do ya have to lose?

Anyone try something like this ?

I went ahead and just hooked it up, inside the house. Then fired up a fire, and opened all the windows in that room. It smelled bad, like burning paint, for a couple hours or so, and smelled for 2 more days, but not as bad as that first couple of hours. We survived. You just need some ventilation.

Set it up outside, light it and get the curiosity out of your system.
You'll be much more confident when you then set it up inside.
Just make sure you don't get a thunderstorm. The control box is
not water tight.
Post some pictures.

I would think draft wouldnt be too much of an issue for a preburn outside. The fan/forced draft will aid your combustion. Its not like it is a natural draft stove.

Burning the stove outside is a great paint cure. How you vent it is not an issue. I wouldn't waste the time to hook up pipe. I would get a lawn chair, beer and time to waste.
Thanks for your purchase,

Jerr, Thank you for that, especially the beer reccomendation and the other clap suggesting combustion air will force the gasses out.

Just had a vision. We hook up the Pocono to burn off the paint right next to the 12,000 gallon pool that needs to be 95 degrees. Copper coil, small pump running 100% of the time, itsa redneck pool heata !

Sounds like a new business venture....................

Already done that. Don't use copper, the pool water is tough on copper, use stainless.
