Ok well I loaded more, about an inch below bottom of cracked back brick in a slight forward slope. It's a lot of coal in there, but probably not as much as you would say to use. I'm going to leave it overnight at 2 turns open and see how it does. Very curious to see what morning brings!
I really want to thank you all for helping so much. It was your advice (and frigid temps) that got me to finally get this thing working! Great group of folks, and I see you discuss more than coal! I look forward to chiming in here and there with my radical 2 cents. Until then I'll have 100 more questions I'm sure.
Again thanks a million, um, see ya tomorrow!
Any other overnight advice??
