Just a question about that: I saw that there were some stoves named Air Thight Stoves. Was it a stove company or a stove concention? Were they different from other stoves. Thanks

Don't forget to light a few charcoal fires to cure the stove and let the various parts expand to fit their new tolerances. You don't want to use wood to start your fires because the smoke will cloud up your windows. Charcoal will do just fine and dust and ash can be easily wiped off with a soft cloth and some windex.

nortcan wrote:William, I watched all your videos on the Glenwood. Always something to learn from them. Is the kerosene used to light the anthracite is an explosive/dangerous product? On the vid. it doesn't seem to be but just want to make sure I will still have a Golden Bride after the first match.
