With it warming up to 70 degrees today, I will probably lose it. Its very annoying. While I much perfer warm weather, I hate fluctuation. Either stay cold, or stay warm......damnit! :mad:

ok back to normal. the problem was alot of ash built up in the grates i guess, i poked under the grates and some ash and coal came out, about 5 mins after that fire came back up to 225 degrees. i think when i shake down the stove maybe i wasn't doing it fast even short strokes, and maybe didnt shake it enough...

great, now you're a veteran shake down artist.LOL choking out from under fire ash build up is probably the largest contributor to loosing fire.

i've found it's real important to avoid when running these stoves at min. heat levels and now you know even at ultra low out put your stove probably isn't going to go out.
