A 36 hour unattended burn

A 36 hour unattended burn

PostBy: Smoker858 On: Sun Nov 25, 2012 9:37 pm

We went away for the Holiday figuring we would need to refire Sunday night. Well 36 hours unattended, still had red coal, shook it down, opened the MPD, opened Ash door slide and Bimetallic to 12 oclock. Within 15 minutes the blue ladies were dancing and all was well. Ash pan was half full. What a great stove.

Fred,

That's my bionic wifes stove.

Probably will go for a 48 hour burn around Christmas. So now the wife says "well can I tend it every 24 hours instead of every 12 hours?" What have I created?

Tis the season.

Well it happened A 48 hour idle type burn while we celebrated Christmas out of town. When we got home the house was 66, the stove top was 100. Did a shake and poke and the top coals came alive in about 15 minutes.

Oh before we left town I was playing with the front door and teasing the blue ladies. I had closed off all readily and easy air sources to the stove. MPD, ash door, T'stat and front door. This caused the blue ladies to hug the front glass door frame. Yup, tightened the window retainer screws 1/2 to 1 turn is all it took. Ladies disappeared until I slid open the "moon" on the ash door.

With a large modern catalytic wood stove, for example a Blaze King "King" model, you can achieve 36+ hour burns. Yes it does require good fuel (oak) and burning on a lower setting but it does work. It is great during ski weekends when I leave Friday nights and return Sunday. It keeps the house warm (60's) for the weekend. On return, with a hot wood fire, it is quick to get the house back up to the mid-70s

Yes, I burn both wood and coal. Wood is cheap, coal is easy.
