I heard the same thing today..."it's cold in here". I hadn't fired up yet this year since it has been fairly mild here just south of the mason - dixon line, so I made that my afternoon project.
After checking the condition of last years flue pipe, I treated myself to some new flue pipe and new self tapping hex heads at lunch. Still had the Rutland seam cement from last year. Cut and pieced together the flue pipe this afternoon, sealed it up, set th egrates and sealed the edges and center seam. I was out of cowboy charcoal so I made a quick trip to Lowes, giving the cement a little time to set up and got a torn bag for 1/2 price!
Got everything together and fired up about an hour ago. Stove temp is now 500*, flue temp is 225*, manometer reads .04, baro has been leveled, plumbed and screwed in place and gently flaps once in a while.
Saving $$$ has begun for the season....life is good!!!
