Fun Discussion. Things I learned. 1) after 25 years of heating my home with wood I don't know jack[s*] about how wood burns or how my stove works. 2) that this newfangled RMH is still in it's infancy and there are as many questions as answers. My observation is about my own situation. I have a Catalytic stove that I load twice a day. I burn about 6 cords a year. When I first ran across the RMH I thought fanatstic! reduce consumption!! Oh wait...gotta hang around and feed the J tube style,Oh Wait!! Batch Box!! Load er up and walk away, just like my Cat stove. However point 2 above...still in its infancy, and how am I as newbie less than nothing going to build something my Regional District inspector will say OK to. Much work to be done on both ends here. That being said, Thanks! you guys(and girls) are an inspiration!!
