I just installed a US Army cannon.
The stove is working great but any thing more than about 25 pounds of lump coal and the temp at the upper part of the stove goes to 600 plus. Any suggestions about opporating temps appreciated.
Thank you

Typically more air equals more heat, so check for air leaks. Damper closed?

Thank you. Keeping the lower dampers closed after loading more coal seems to help.

I am using large lump - size varies for nut to large fist in size. One thing is the stove came with a pipe reducer from 7 to 6 inches. If I close the ash tray, main door and pipe damper the ash door and main doors will pop open. That problem seems to be solved by cracking the main door damper.
