Me too.  Reuben once mentioned he lights his fires several times a day
only; from this I infer he lets it go out, then later, as the house cools,
fires up the stove again.  Is this correct, Reuben?  If so, how do you
prevent creosote buildup in your chimney?  Or maybe you simply clean it
several times a year?

What are the HDD where you live?  I've forgotten, sorry.

Thanks,  Sacie
