Just an outsider question(s) as I dont own a Blaze king let alone a cat stove.
Is not 2 dampers 1' apart partially closed asking for a cold chimney and major buildup? How long have you ran this?
And are you guys running solely off of draft numbers, or chimney °F combined?
When I repainted my NC-30 last year it took 3 cans to get even coverage.
I used a wire wheel on a grinder to get most of the surface rust off.
Right before painting I used MAPP Gas torch to get rid of surface moisture, like I do on most metal objects I spray paint.
Thinking of going this route to monitor the wood stove in the garage. Without going down 2 flights of stairs and out to the garage Ill be able to watch this from my bedside.
Is this still the best option out there?
Ive thought it through and cant seem to think why this wouldnt work. I cooked pizza, and steak and chicken with a wood fire going.
Clean the stove out. Put in BBQ briquettes. Light, let burn some, insert meat on metal rack above the briquettes and smoke it.
I know the draft might be weak...
He has a 50, but thanks for trying. I'm not debating either.
I was hoping some other people would post pictures of theirs above the mantel to help the guy out. Just sounds like he wants best of both worlds, and for the sake of the TV shouldn't hang it there.
He is right. Need more hinge. Looks like both cuts were made at the same level, not sure if tree had major lean in your favor or not.Looks like a conventional cut too. I prefer Humboldt cuts 98% of the time.
Good job though, got it done without incident.
We have to have more info to give advice.
What stove, what dimensions, where at? Pics help. Need to see clearances.
Dyed concrete for a hearth is a great idea. Easy to no maintenance and definitely fireproof. I've seen some that look very nice.
Yea mine has never looked nothing like that while the flue was over 350 before.
First thing I did was yell at wife. Priorities, ya know haha.
I shut the air all the way.
Gave the door an extra pressure close action.
Threw a magnet halfway on the 2ndery inlet.
Cooled the pipe right off. Took...
She thought the wood was wet. I told her we were running low on dry stuff.Also misheard me as saying "Leave door cracked" when I said "Leave cracked for 5 minutes."
It was smokey from the paint burning off/in.
I told her I've been wanting to run it hot like that once but didnt have the balls. Lol
Had this load ready for me tonight to light when I got home. The wife decided to light it off for me 25 minutes early.
Left the door cracked with air full open.
Came into smokey smoke with Pipe temp at 780 and STT at 885. Be careful with instructions for your significant other.
