Is your stove exactly level? It's just a big stove and things take a while. With rice it seems to smother the fire more but with buck it may be better as there is more air flow. Buck is my next experiment in the depth of next winter. Your smaller stove may respond quicker but thats a local effect. Due to the ultra high heat transfer of the Anthra-King your house will just warm up quicker (In my application). You just need some play time, trust me it's worth it . I have a Pocono and I know - they are just different beasts. For instance, once winter gets serious I disconnect the distribution fan from the coal trol and just run it from main power directly. My 14" round duct means the LFM is still very low and the air stream is constantly HEPA filtered. Only way to fly. Why people like the Hyfire over these remains one of the universes great mysteries.
Hey Dave, if I promise to polish the corporate jet once a week can I get a break on a 220. Remember, mindless overkill is a beautiful thing. The last time I got a feeling like this was when I was looking at a photo of Cindy Crawford (many years ago). I salivate over stove photos at 5AM, is this an addiction, is there any cure... I need help.
HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHa, I slay myself.
