This is the first year trying to burn buck in my keystoker koaker (no rice at all 5 ton of buckwheat0. I'm not sure but I think I need to increase the feed rate to keep the fire going right. Thanks

nothing so far just wasn't sure if I would need to increase feed rate. I turned it 2 full turns. I thought that I read somewhere that buck is harder to keep going then rice and that you need to increase the feed but not sure
