Hi Peter Thanks.....
My my, I am learning.... stayed up all night. Sometimes I feel like I never burned coal. What am I most afraid of? Answer I do not want a runway stove; I never want to over-fire the Godins. So I pulled out the manual which Chrisbuick kindly reproduced for me, it's from the era when the Stone Ledge Company imported the Godins. When all else fails, follow the directions.
On the Large Round, and with a half filled good burning pot, I layered in fresh charges until the coal was just below the Flue. With each load, I opened the air inlet two revolutions, waited for the coal to ignite and reset the inlet back to 1/2 opening. The fire pot has more coal burning thus more heat, but the air flow is restricting, not going to get a runaway fire, no way. More area on the stove is kicking heat.
Tonight looking at -15 F with wind chill advisory at times to -25 F..... going to keep the Large Godin loaded to the hilt, hopefully it will keep the home a bit warmer.
