So it's a cool 15 degrees here with 25mph gusts making it feel like 5 below. Perfect time to use the shirley for the first time.
This warmed me up for the 3 mins it took me to finish it

Curious, did you get the insulated fire box? If so, how does it work. I live not too far from you and today sucks wind and cold wise. I am getting my Shirley in May with an insulated firebox. Just curious how you made out on such a horrible day.

Welcome to the Shirley family. I use the same table for a wind barrier!

I have a 3/8 non insulated firebox. Had ZERO issue keeping temp, figured I was going to burn thru a lot of wood and was shocked at how easy it was. Burned thru a lot less wood than I planned for. This thing tunes in nicely. Can't wait to give it another go.

Congrats on the new Pit.

Beyond photo's, I have never seen a SF Pit. Maybe someday I can take a look at yours.
I'm only 10 mins away on RT3.

Good luck with it.
