    Yeah, I could run the cord out front. The fire place is a huge affair, made out of field rocks grandpa hauled home.

    It has a steel fire box and the sliding glass doors on the front....sorta looks like an insert.

    Thanks for the info Justin.
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Throw up a pic if you get a chance. Here's my fireplace that I'm going to put that insert into.

    I just looked again and it is not a steel box like my folks, but a brick box.

    A insert would work great in there Jim.

    Squish, my PE Summit is finally getting here after filing a Paypal dispute.....

    Would you advise burning a fire in it outside of the house before we instal it?? Seen some folks do that before with new stoves

    If it's painted it might not be a bad idea. Nothing makes my wife crazy (er) than me stinking up the house.

    Yours is enamel , isn't it? Probably some paint on it. They do stink for a couple hours. I would think good idea.

    Up to you. I burned mine off in the house. You can do it outside but each new high temp you hit will stink a bit for the first time. But atleast you'll get the brunt of it outside. You'll have to stick a bit of pipe on it I would think if you want to be able to get it up to temp.

    PE's instructions are vague for giving actual running temps. I'd be looking to monitor flue temps and stove top temps if you can on the classic? If yOu can't use a magnet thermometer on the top a IR thermometer could be handy for shooting through the fins to the stovetop. You want to make sure yOu get that sucker up to temp, so you get good secondary combustion. Cruising around 500 stovetop will make good secondaries. You can push as high as 700 stovetop 750 if you dare when you're asking it for a little extra.

    What sort of pipe/chimney are you hooking it up to?

    My summits been burning for three days straight, and I'm just settling in it's bedtime load right now.

    Also note your first couple of fires should be break in fires so not right up to temp. This is to drive moisture out of the bricks and to cure the paint.
