I’ve got a blaze king catalytic stove that has a small-ash pan under a small plug. Thought it would be great.  Never used it. Too small. Maybe the size of a shoe box. No grates. I just shovel ashes out every three days or so otherwise not enough room for a days burning of wood.  I burn ironwood sugar maple and oak. Way to many coals or “klinkers”. My quadrafire high efficiency non catalytic fireplace upstairs  burns the same wood with no grates and all that’s left is FINE ash. I blame it on cat vs. non cat. I’d that true or What am I doing wrong??

My furnace I use has a two stage burn. No catalytic. Uses a four stainless steel tube combustion system to achieve a secondary burn cycle. Horizontal jets of super heated secondary air are mixed with the fire’s smoke to burn off released smoke particles. You can watch the torch-like secondary flames just below the ceiling during the burn resulting in more heat, cleaner air, fast start up.

This is exactly why I bought the hearthstone Bennington stove I bought today. I hate no grates. I wanted grates, a bottom ash pan door and a end load door. This will take 23” wood from the end.

The day before you know you want to empty the ashes, burn some Poplar, or spruce for the day.  You won’t have a coal problem in the morning!
I may not have a coal problem but I would have a cold problem. ;D

Why cold in NC? That's mostly what I burn, never been cold yet. I don't think 75-80F is very cold. If you're cold, I'm sure I can push to 90F with no trouble. :D

Every now and then I'll do a partial cleanout on a hot stove to get the coals down. Typically on a real cold weekend where I'm letting it run more than half throttle and filling more often. By now there's always a good snow cover on the ground, so no problem getting rid of the hot coals. Never thought of this as being a big deal, just something that occasionally needs to be done. :)

Discussing burning Hickory for firewood while out here on the left coast I bought a little bag of blocks for my BBQ.  Have you guys no shame?  :D

If my fire in the wood stove gets so low that there are no hot coals in the AM the the house temp goes below 60F and that feels cold to me.

furnace here, so coals does not always mean hot enough to trip a fan. Never been cooler than 68F here when I throw a stick in in the morning. And be 75F in 10 minutes. Much adoo about nothing. Up here we have real cold, 0F not 30F most winter mornings. Poor Jeff at -30F the other morning in northern MI and he's measuring propane bottles. 'I need more wood'!!  :D
