Mark and Funk,

Talk to me about the creosote issue.............does the Stoker keep the fire burning hot enough to prevent the issue (I burn only wood)? Can you maintain that thin blue smoke? I would like to try one out, but before I spend the cash I'd like to be sure this is not an issue.

Does the Stoker give you longer burn times, saving fuel?

I have a Gator Pit offset, which has a 48" long X 24" dia. food chamber and a 24" long X 24" dia. firebox. It has 2 spin open type air inlet dampers. How would you configure the Stoker for this set-up? Would you replace one of the dampers with the fan and close the other or would you replace both dampers with 2 fans? What size fans would I need?
