..nothing like last year
Interesting. I started keeping track because I was running much less than I remember having to empty the 6 gallon ash can I use. It's been taking 3-1/2 to 4 days of ash to fill it. Past years, I couldn't get more than 3 days worth of ashes in that can.
Also, this years load of nut is running slightly larger sizes with a few chunks up in the stove coal size range.
And no wood chunks this year either. Past years there's always been wood chunks. Last year it was so loaded with wood there was at least one chunk in every coal hod full.
