We didn't have huge winds last night (35-50) but it's still blowing about 20 right now. The Glenwood was turned down too 200 degrees when I filled and shook the stove last night. I turned the primary's closed for the storm and was showing about 250 this morning when I got up at 7am (overslept) :oops: . I'm pleased that the old 116 held it's temp pretty well with just a MPD. I could have opened the secondary Gas burner on the feed door but wanted to try without it to see how she'd do. No complaints.
