I some times burn wood, wood likes to sit on a bed of ash to burn slowly , it sounds like you are getting to much air, the problem is that if you get it to burn slow enough, unless you can get the chimney real hot,(hard to do with a slow fire), you may get tar build up which can be hard to remove, if you do get the wood to burn make sure the wood is very dry, hard wood like oak is best, pine fir ect make more tar.
Yeah, it says that on the back of my Morso too...while the stove itself is specifically designed to do both. Its more of an EPA pollution thing to be honest.
I burn wood in mine during shoulder seasons with zero problems and it burns quite well...the only issue is cutting the wood to 12 inches to fit in the firebox.
