Woooooooooowooooooooo doggy! Lit the stove tonight with some dry seasoned wood and smoked out my basement! The stove was off gassing and smelled like burning plastic/paint/oil etc. Lets just say the boss upstairs wasn't too happy!
But she's cool and got over it in like 15 seconds! HA!
I ran her at about 450d with the bottom door cracked open - I figured the stove is smoking so might as well try to get all off it off now!
I had my flu wide open and the ashpan door cracked 90% of the time. The times I shut the door the flame would get lazy but would maintain about 325d with the airflow knobs fully opened. But my number one goal was to burn off the residuals and air out the basement. There was no sign of wood smoke present so that was good.
Its only 55d outside so I'm sure my draft isn't sucking hardcore right now. We do have a little bit of wind volume outside but who knows....
