With buck I needed to about double the timer setting (I used 2 groups of 7-8) and cut the feed by 2 turns or so for late spring-early fall operation. Secondary blower was full open.

With rice I run the same settings all the time.
Did this help with ash? Unburnt has increase.
Yes, it helped a lot with the unburnt. I also ran the primary and secondary air full open.
