Burn after 7.5 hrs

This is a complete burn now settled in a highly efficient final

burn till reload time. This is the Valier oversize lump Bit in this

case, added 36# at 0600hr. So you can burn Bit with a blue

flame and very cleanly, no soot or other problems.

Definition of base burner from encyclopedia Americana.

The principle of base burning stoves is "to place the fuel in such a position that air to supply combustion

shall come from one direction, and the fuel from the opposite direction, thereby causing the heated

products of combustion to pass from the sides of the pile of fuel, instead of up through it".
