Opacity graph. First large spike is the kindling. This got the sensor dirty, hence the 50% opacity flat line for the second
half, which should be close to zero, as in previous graphs.

Maple 4x4's were purchased by Alex Chernov in 1012, and stored inside.

fuel load
Kindling is 7 lbs of split poplar at 15.5% moisture. Reload was at 17.3 O2 (approx 70%  O2 recovery). Faster  kindling fire,
higher PM spike, lower oxygen minimum than HK-M07 - M09.
