I shut it off today to do some final work around the install. It had been idling for 20 hrs and had settled in @340 degrees stove and 140 degrees on the pipe 20" above the stove. I have the coal-trol set at MIN 6 and MAX 40. I also would estimate the fire to be about 1 1/2 to 2" and full width of the grate on the LL Pioneer.
I am burning coal that I got from Keystone, and so far it burns real nice.
I need to snake a new thermostat wire in the wall prior to mounting the finished wood trim, then add the trim and it will be complete.
