Getting ready to set up my 270 so a question. In the windows of RLBs stove is drilled holes, I don't see any other way of introducing secondary air like the upper wheel on my Jotul 507. So is this desirable?
If you want to burn ant, don't bother too much with air over the fire, specially if the stove is not having a special device to do so. Old timers usually made stoves to work as is.
