Looks like you've got it dialed in and fine tuned for summer operation. :clap:

With buck I needed to about double the timer setting (I used 2 groups of 7-8) and cut the feed by 2 turns or so for late spring-early fall operation. Secondary blower was full open.

With rice I run the same settings all the time.

Did this help with ash? Unburnt has increase.


Yes, it helped a lot with the unburnt. I also ran the primary and secondary air full open.
