Hey Lee bout 10 minutes ago I opened the load door to stir. Well got it closed draft shot to .35 I thought a plane was flying over from the rumble. Have not burnt any wood to have creosote fire. Perhaps gasses ignited in my flue??

That was likely secondary air burning the gasses. I get that all the time with top vents open. That is why you dont want wood creosote in your chimney as they could ignite. Ive had those gasses/flames going several feet up my chimney before which is not good. Its if I put too much wood or soft coal (which I am finally out of) in the stove at one time.

As lightning said, that smell is just dust burning from on top of your stove. I have to run my stove much hotter than you so I get it often. No big problem there.

Double cool! Hope it will burn good and hope you can afford the price difference.

600 degrees, when I hit around that temp on the side of my stove, is about when I start smelling the dirt/hot smell from the top of my stove. I wont tell you how hot Ive run it before :lol: Not my Chubby though, Im real gentle with her.

I've been thinking about anthracite for about a month now budget looking up now days. May have to block the front liner for anthracite no big deal. Don't get me wrong I love bit coal but I've tried anthracite before in a different stove and heat was rock solid steady.
