For whatever reason, I am not getting past 200 degrees on the LCC. I have the air vent wide open. I noticed the fire is right dead center of the stove, it seems the right or left sides are not lite for whatever reason.
Any suggestions to bump it up? Can I leave the ash pan door open to allow more air and hence raise the temp? Or am I doing something so simple wrong that I am over looking it.
Dan did you restart the stove or is this the same fire have you shaken the ash down when you reloaded the new coal
did you leave the ash door open until the new coal was burning before you shut the ash door did you adjust the baro
at all when you shook the ash down did you leave the ash door open for a few minutes before you shook the ash
with your air all the way open on that stove with a good fire to start with your temp would be 2000F not 200f you missed
a step some where open the ash door leave the fire build up watch you temps in the stack go up then shake it 2 to 3 times quick you should see red glowing embers threw the bottom of the grates if not leave the ash door open for a few more minutes until you do then once you do check the coal on top and make sure it is filled to the top of the bricks but
before you add any more coal make sure the coal that is in there already is burning good first then add more coal then wait with the ash door open until the new coal is burning then shut the ash door and set your air vent for how much heat
