Slowing the burn

Slowing the burn

PostBy: Firsttimer101 On: Tue Nov 05, 2013 7:17 pm

Hi all,

Got the fire up and running but dropping red coals into ash bin. I've stopped the feed to burn what's on my grate, which is completely full right now. Wondering how long I can stop the feed before it potentially causes any damage to the stove. Should I restart the feed very slow and just let it Adjust naturally?

Thank you!

Got it working...guess this is going to be a lot of trial and error!

Yes it is.

When first starting it is not unusual to have a full burning grate of red coal. It will settle down within the first hour.
