I had a pretty exciting event last night lol. So I did my usual shake and load with a blanket of fines on top. Normally, I leave the ash door open till the volatiles ignite and run the pipe up to 300 degrees. As you might assume, it tends to heat the house up quick too, especially when it's 60 degrees outside. This time in an attempt not to overheat the house I left the ash door open, but only for a few minutes then I shut everything up and was done with it. While I was knelt on the floor centered in front of the furnace the volatiles ignited, hahaha. If you can imagine, a cylinder of flame similar to a Titan rocket lift off shot out of the secondary inlets right past me on both sides. Scared the dog *censored* out of me. Yep, pretty exciting event. I was surprised to find the baro door still on the pipe lol. I wish I woulda got that on video. Stuff like that would go viral
Let's make sure the volatiles are lit BEFORE locking her up next time, okay?
