Here is a good solution for you..........Sell the wood and buy a ton or two of coal.
You can get a quick bag or two at Agway or try Riverside or Boston Coal... They deliver as well. It would truely be a sin to burn wood in this stove other than for using some wood to light the coal when it comes time. Seriously once you understand coal you will wonder WHY it took you so long to use it. Think about this.. With your wood stove can you really get a true 12 to 14 hour burn with decent BTU's being pumped out into the house? NO. With coal you can and will. That means you can SLEEP in style and comfort knowing you don't need to feed the stove every 2-3 hours to maintain the desired temp in the house. And that is wonderful thing!!!!!
