Just operating my hitzer50/93. What is the safest temp range to operate? My stove is in the garage and I am running fans into the house. My temp gauge on top of the stove is 350 . Storm on east coast expecting temps at 9 degrees tonight and tommorow night -4degrees. Thanks :D

I have an Hitzer insert and on the front of the stove is my thermometer. I will make sure I got an empty ash pan and have it up to 500-550 tomorrow night and go through about 75lb of coal. Normally I run it when it in the 20's at about 300-400. Above 32 its at 200-300.

X2 with Ctyankee, just move that thermometer from the top to the front right side near the top next to the door.
This is only my two cents
and sometimes it is not worth that
