Bity454 wrote:Hi flyer, first let me say i absolutly love my pioneer stove. As a manufacturer i am shur to get your UL ratings you cant make a hot rod just like the auto maeket and the EPA. That said i am just comparing my alaska 85000 btu burn to the ll 90000 btu burn, the alaska grates have the back row and two side rows sized at 3/16 and the flame coming off the the grate is over a foot high and deffinatly producing more heat. So i drilled my pioneer grate 5/32 back 2 rows, and 2 side rows, wow huge difference using the coal trol like a rheostat my max before was at 50, now i get more heat at setting of 35. Flame is only about 6 inches tall and not very agressive, the air from the alaska has all kinds of little red jumpers flying of the grate from the extra air flow with no signs of clinkers or overfiring. Hence my search for a little more cfm's. Just because a car comes from the factory at 250 horsepower doesnt mean with the right add ons ut cant create 500 horespower!!!
Bottom line, if i can get the same amount of heat at a lower feed rate that saves me $$$$$
