Turn off the flash !
Or, at least show us what the "beast" looks like now. . . . pretty please ? Your avatar is a bit too small to be able to appreciate such a beast.
It's a point n' click camera....I don't think there's an option to turn off the flash. I can try to fat finger the flash though.....I'll try that tonight.
300 barrel and 175 stack - is that in indirect mode ? From what Glenwood base heater numbers have been posted on here in the past, I seem to remember hearing temp number ratios that are closer to 5:1 in cold weather. I should think that it would be at least more than 2:1 in warm weather ?
It was in indirect mode but the fire wasn't fully established. It later went to 425 on the barrel and just a smidge below two-hundy on the stack.
Do you have an mpd in the stack ,..... and if so what angle is it at with those temps ?
Are you going to hook up a mano gauge ?
I do have an mpd in the stack. The angle was approximately 45 degrees (standard stuff).
I do not plan on hooking up a mano gage but....that could change when real coal hits the grates. I have a very tall, strong drafting chimney and I have a check dampner in the outlet elbow. Wilson says with that I should be able to keep the beast from running away on a windy night.
At the low stack temps these things run at, I don't see excess draft being an issue.....it wasn't when I was burning wood and those stack temps are MUCH higher.
But again.....I'm a professional wood burner. I really don't know what the hell I'm talking about with coal.
