Im waiting for someone to add a live feed in their profile of their stoves temp, CO monitor and draft :lol: Probably less than a year away for that.

Some people just like modern gadgets I guess. I find it entertaining and i learn from it if I can, but no way am I doing much of it.

How much of a distance is there between the 'moving' part of the grate and the firebrick on the sides? Looks to be about 2 inches or better?

Edit. I can't wait till I finish curling this stove to try coal. So far I'm having to adjust were I just had a stove that a closed draft did not control it well this is much different i can tame wood fire pretty good.
