Should be no temp swing when adding a log. You add when temp starts to drop the it stabilizes. Split logs are perfect, I like about 3-4inches wide and 10-12 inches long. When it jumped to 290, it was the wood turning to coals which are hotter. Just close the exhaust a bit and it will stabilize.

We use both splits and whole rounds.
There isn't much of a spike when we add logs either way though.
It's a timing thing. You sort of just know when the fire needs another log.

We usually have a 2 log fire going.
There's usually one log just about completely gone to coals, one log fully engulfed in flames and one recently added.
If logs are added at the right times, the temp rarely moves at all.


One thing that helped us out was we added a secondary grate with smaller holes to sit on top of the "provided" grates in the firebox. The secondary grate we got has smaller holes and so it holds up the coal bed a little better than it did with the "stock" grates alone.
