Overnight burning - I regularly burn with this stove 8 to 10 hours overnight with good results:-

Firstly I purchased another Ash Pan to swap out when preparing for overnight burning. *** warning please note, it is better if 2 people carry this out***

1) Let the fire burn down to leave a nice bed of red embers.

2) With the poker push the bed upwards and towards the back of the fire and swap the ash pans.

3) Lower the bed and place approx. 3/4 of a bucket of briquettes / smokeless fuel on the red embers.

4) Slide the top and bottom air controls across to half way.

5) Wake up the next morning to a warm room, put a piece or pieces of softwood on the fire to get flaming again. This will also help any residual ash fall.

6) Swap the ash pans as before.

Good luck, I hope you have the same success as we are enjoying.

Stove expert replied: Smokeless fuels come in many shapes and sizes and it is best to trial a few before buying in bulk as they do vary in how they burn, the amount of ash produced and flame picture etc. Once you find the one that suits you and your stove you will enjoy the results that overnight burning can bring.
