I ordered 6 tons this year since I have nothing left at all from the 5 tons of nut I got last year. I get bulk delivered and they usually bring it in September. This time I ordered a mix of stove and nut because I have a new Glenwood 116 replacing the Star Herald and it's a 16" pot versus the 10" of the Herald. It will like stove sized like William and DJ's #6 since it's the same stove above the base. The cookstove like nut but will do stove also so I did the mix of 4 tons stove and 2 of nut in my bulk mix.

I too am going to try to wait till the end of Oct to fire up too but we'll see. My 116 can also burn wood with in direct mode and I have a half a cord laying around so if need be, I'll burn some of that to take the chill off in the cookstove or the Modern oak.
