    Well, I dunno what they recommend but this was installed by a dealer 4 years ago at a different house. We brought it with us when we moved last summer, since the slab was here and already set up for this. Never had a single problem, the first 3 years at the other house. Last winter after moving it, no issues. This year, it's one thing after another. Part of why I'm here - just looking for the appropriate place to troubleshoot :)

    Thank You!! Its funny you say that this is my goal! It would have been that high but I decided to start stacking on the second wall. I get this free from a furniture maker. During the winter its tough to get so I am going to wait until the summer when there are fewer people wanting the free kiln-dried wood. Besides, I think I have enough for now, maybe!:eek:

    If my calculations are correct I have about 10 years worth (for me, my brother, the UPS driver, and 2 other friends) of kindling.

    Some items are good to get while the getting is good. I get not wanting to be selfish though as well :).
    Is there anything else you could do with them to make a buck, bundle them up and sell them on Craigslist in another area maybe.

    We do them like that here about once a month, sometimes they go down to coals for a day, then get another life and end up even bigger.
    The good thing is its overcast in Michigan many days so when I light them noone calls the fire dept, but most the folks around here are used to my fires now :D.
    This was the day before that one.

    20190914_175225.jpg An a month earlier, this one was going for a week on and off. Did I say I like fires :p.

    Thats great.
    My biggest fire was at a lot clearing/cleanup I did for a friends grandmothers place, that one was a big fire. Glad she pulled a permit, but I'm sure if tue fire dept saw that one they would have had something to say about it :surprised3:.

    I have definitely thought about doing that. The kindling wood is 1.5 hours away so I could list it. The thought of selling on craigslist always makes me pause. You're lucky if you get 1 out of 4 people to actually show up. It comes in long 6' to 12' strips and I have to cut them down with a chop saw and it takes a while to cut down a bundle, approximately 3-4 hours. Your looking at about 5 bundles in the pictures.
