I use the woody type charcoal, its much easier to manage a lower temp on the pipe.
Even when I start a new fire I don't get over 350 on the pipe.

My cruise temp on the pipe is 180-190, idles around 140 then up to 260 when I have a call for heat from the thermostat.
My furnace is a little big for the house so I never push it very hard. Even at 10 below zero last year one night, I reved up the furnace to 400 with around 300 on the pipe
