I do have a back up generator. I need to get it set up so it's easy for my wife to use. That's an whole nother topic in it's self.
How did it go?

I'm most likely going to go with hand fired. Leave the propain in place for back up. It's a different ballgame but with forced combustion it can be controlled and get over 12hr burns without a problem. Especially since I only have teens or below a few weeks a year. But anything short of a totally automatic generator leaves me out of the stoker field for now.
