The only wood that burns like hell is the wood that was born in hell, OZ hardwood.

As a general rule I don't put in any logs thicker than my wrist. Do you split those monsters or burn them that size?

I burn logs 300mm dia no problem, they need a bit of encouragement to get going at first.

yeah, I guess a smaller oven requires smaller logs. It is really easy to overload my chamber with fuel and then you don't get the right atmosphere.

Thanks heaps for the info... those probs certainly give you a good idea to the oven temps. Blown away by the idea that a hell boy burn over 3 to 4 hours gives you a hot oven for 3 to 4 days !!!! wow!!! I'm thinking of using a prob thermometer drilled down through to the fire brick to give me more idea of what a given burn will give me in the way of heat over a period of time.
My thing at the moment is wood supply I have a couple of sq mtr green about 4 mtr of proper dry and a fair supply of tree falls from the local area if I have the time to collect it. I'm determined not to pay for the wood supply I want this oven to be able to operate on basically on waste (recycle wood) and treefalls from my local area.

Again Thanks
Dave

PS the XXXX gold can for comparison? whats this a QLDsLander?

I probably did read it but never really thought about the implications.......or perhaps one of those VB beer bubbles left over from my younger days burst in my brain at just the wrong time?
Your right about mid strengh...Lite beer makes me pee to much, full strenght makes me snore to much so mid strenght is just right....
Yes I drink cans as well....makes for a quieter garbage bin when its collected on Mons at
4 am... you should hear my neighbours!

regards dave

Scientists have discovered that the frequency of women's farts is lower than that of men. Apparently they can't keep their mouths closed for long enough to build up the required pressure.
