Burn it outside before you hook it up! OMG I seasonsed my
stove this weekend - talk about smoke and stink. I figured I
should do it when I could open up the whole house and take the
birds outside.

Paula, You probably already know this but, others may not. Make sure you keep that flu cleaned out if you're burning wood. Creasote builds up in the flu and can catch fire.

We have burned wood before but was new at it when we started...knew nothing about the cresote buildup...woke up one morning to the smelliest brown gunk all behind the heater...just lucky it did not catch fire...This new wood heater has a catalytic converter on it...heard pros and cons on them...anyone else have one on their heaters???...KatG

I have a catalytic stove. It's Vermont Casting's Dutchwest (small). This will be my first winter with it - let's compare notes next year.

You bet...Have you got yours installed yet?? Hubby is reading instructions in installation as I type...Ours is a New Englander...bought it in having clearance sale due to the change of it for alittle over $700...this season the same heater is almost $2000...say it is due to the war and the iron and steel prices...Thank goodness we got ours before they went up...KatG
