Since the sizes in their bags of nut run from pea to stove with the occasional rusty nail I'm wondering how much the sizing varies in the bags of Stove? Is it basically already mixed with nut or primarily Stove? What's the issue with just burning Stove? Does it burn faster because the large chunks allow more air through the bed?
I,m using Blaschak stove this year,You have to get used to shaking it down,it's much harder to shake than nut.last year I tried all sorts of combinations of nut & stove and found out 50%-50% worked better for tending,but was a pain have 2 different sizes to mix.I load the stove size in,then take my poker and stir and compress the coal to make it as tight fitting as possible.I'm getting used to all the extra ash compared to using UAE the last few years.
