Very good FB. You're on the money with the amount I burn "Average" 50 a day. Sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less. By your recollection, 3 times a day (shaking) equates to every 8 hrs. If I don't scape my grates every 4 hrs or so, the fires starts suffocating rapidly. when I go to bed at 11-11:30 PM, and wake up at 5:30 -6AM, the ash pile is usually grey and dull, and temps down to less than 200. And that's on a good nite. with the installation of my manometer and MPD, it's gotten "only slightly" better, but I'm hoping for some more of my learning curve to continue this winter. Gracious once again for the opinions. (Out for the nite).
