That is about the same as what I am getting on my Hyfire.
Are you flue temps measured on the outside of the pipe? Seem a bit low, but if using the magnetic type thermometers, they are not that accurate on a round surface.
I use a probe thermometer in the pipe after the baro and it never gets above 250 degrees (inside the pipe).
Yes, I am using the exterior magnetic thermometer. I realize the lack of accuracy, but it should be consistent.
I would think the larger stove/stoker would burn hotter, at least at the stove body. If they do not, how do they provide more
heat? The stove body is not THAT much bigger. I have not done the surface area calculations between the two, but it is not
huge. So where does the extra heat come from?
Also, how much does the color of the stove effect it ability to radiate the heat? Obviously, black is the most efficient but how much does color effect it? Just curious.
