You got that right about it being slow to changes. Next up is to get the manometer. I like to know were I stand on draft but for now the baro is doing okay.

Maybe I missed it. Do you have Carbon monoxide detectors?

Happy burning. :)

Great Job lightning! only thing Ill add is when your re-loading (and you don't have to "layer" at all)... carbon makes a good point about just leaving yourself a little tiny exposed red coals in the rear corner someplace which will ALWAYS prevent what concerned this poster (the volatiles wont build up because they will always have an exposed flame/spark to ignite them from that one tiny area left exposed), achieve this by loading your stove up chocker block full and then take your fireplace poker and stick it down on the side through those new coals to give yourself one little area of exposed red. this is generally only a possible issue when your loading more than half your firebed worth coal over a very low temp fire such as after a 12 hour sleep. some stoves are more prone to this than others so its simply a matter of learning yours... as lightning says.... it wont take long before you have coal mastered and you will then NEVER want to burn wood again :D
