I could be wrong, but it looks to be pine or some similar resinous wood.
I always thought that was a recipe for a chimney fire due to rapid accumulation of incomplete combustion residues........
Please enlighten me.....
Does Per have an FADEC stove? (50% sarcasm)

True, but it is only a small amount of pine we use, less than 1%, and only because I helped an (not really )elderly (Thai) lady to chop down some pines in her garden. :mrgreen:
When we burn pine it is with full airflow and reheat. Not a problem.

Well, that's reassuring - the idea of you standing in a blizzard in your underwear pissing on the embers of your cabin was quite distressing........

The cabin was sold a couple of years ago, my wife has decided that we should see the world. Bought a silly big house instead, been working 8x6 ever since. Two hungry fire places here, but plenty of forest around where I have permission to go hunting for trees.
Thankfully SWMBO has booked the whole of February at Bali. :roll:

Good procedure!
Not a problem.
Violation of fundamental CRM that it's important to monitor the chimney that the updraft is not too swift, hot or roaring.

Also, cowboy, improvisational recklessness...

Is your stove big, fancy, expensive and attractive to Type A people and medical doctors?

Mine is a super incredibly cheap made-in-Taiwan box stove bought at a hardware store in 1974 or 1975.

Although, I think in some ways, it 'preheats' by sucking hot air in through poorly sealed seams all over the place. I do have strategically placed smoke detectors and try to have at least some good SRM.

I heard that is you burn pine really f***ing hot then you minimise the problems associated with crusty build up and chimney fires. And you have to burn a lot to get it spicy up top....

LOL...it almost seems to support the V-Tail Doctor Killer Analogy.

Both of those appliances are quite beautiful, fancy and high tech (yeah, even yours in the man cave).

Cool!

Do keep the batteries up on the smoke detectors, clean the chimneys and use good soot-reducing procedures! :mrgreen:

One looks like a modern, cheap-composite-automated-crackerbox prone to total what's-it-doing-now disasters if not carefully following procedure. The other looks like an ancient, heavy, sturdily built, fully manual unit in which genius fireplacemanship and burning fundamentals should be applied by a poker-and-bellows cowboy.
