Doing the same thing tonight. First time I don't have any wood in my stove, it's just plain wierd. Over the weekend going to do some more fine turning, thanks sharing the knowledge.
Great@! Sounds like you're getting the hang of it! Just keep filling her up as high as you can. (you dont need to add any more charcoal, just add a thin layer of coal, open the ash door to liven the fire for just a couple of minutes & then close the ash door & shake it down. The whole procedure shouldn't take more than 5 minutes if it's cold enough outside)
