Troubleshooting and Maintenance
There are a couple of ways to make sure your stove is operating efficiently, and there is not too much visible smoke. More smoke means the stove is operating less efficiently. This could be a result of burning wood that hasn’t been seasoned properly, or high-moisture wood. Adjusting the air settings to your needs will also help reduce smoke.
