Mixed hardwood, 18% moisture, 70.3 lbs
Round pieces, 2 small pieces of white birch on top, 9 pieces
Stack sloped slightly towards kindling
Warm heater (132F firebox temp), cold fuel
Cold kindling, 3.5 lbs (not enough)
Almost identical load to run HK-J26 (very clean), except a borderline start, requiring one additional piece of kindling.
Interesting example of non-linear system -- high sensitivity to initial conditions.
Animation, 2 minute intervals.
