Do you/can you use both a bar. draft and a manual draft? Use them together? Shut down the manual draft and then let the baro do its thing father up the pipe?

I've used both together but only during extreme cold or extreme windy conditions. 95% of the time I use the barometric exclusively.. I sent you a private message. :)

Got it! Thanks again! When using them both, or at least they are both installed, do you just leave the manual wide open and then just let the Baro operate? Or should I take out the manual and put the Baro in its place?

I've used a manual pipe damper/MPD for years. This summer I'm changing to a baro due to what I've read on here.

Bit, too much variance of size and not a single shiny spec to be Anth.

So I ordered a manometer. Should I try to keep my draft .3-.5 or .5-.7? Burning Bit

Really? They been talking about baro's and manometers for the past 8 pages atleast. Forget I ever said the sinful three letters BIT. I have a Clayton/hotblast stove. I had one simple question. :mad: In other fellow US stove burners experience, what the best target draft number to hit?

Whoa there, not wanting to upset anybody.

The first responder to your question of draft did provide that he only burned Ant. and offered you no help...my comment was only a suggestion in order for you to find others w/ Bit experience and could offer their experiences...it is, after all titled for Anthracite.


Peace, Out

BTW: I like BIT :D

There is very few people here burning bit in a US stove. I found this thread and there are tons using my style stove. I know there using ant, but I've read all 32 pages and dozens of others pages just using all this helpful info to learn what I can, just cause I'm burning a different kinda of coal, I've still been learning tons of helpful tips. I think in a lot of cases if it'll help burn ANT better it'll help me burn BIT better. I was under maybe the wrong assumption, but under the assumption the draft I needed for my stove to perform the best would be very similar to someone burning ANT. So I did find the reply to my question useful
