Glad it worked out for you Jack!...40* here right now...Heat Wave!!
...Just for today I guess but then it's just going back to NORMAL low temps!
Make sure you rev up you fire good & then do an aggressive shake & Poke down to the shaker grates as there's still plenty of ash in there from the cold days Get rid of as much as you can by doing 1/2 of the firebed at a time, while leaving the other side still flaming well & then reverse the procedure next shake down.
You can really clean out the ash while still running your stove.
