Using a wood-burning stove effectively is both an art and a science. In this friendly, comprehensive guide, chartered forester and woodfuel expert Will Rolls talks the reader through the theory and practice of getting the best results from their stove. From finding the fuel and seasoning it to lighting the stove and operating it cleanly, this book describes the best techniques for looking after your log stove.

  • Why a cold stove is harder to light
  • Heat fans
  • Why some stoves require leaving the door ajar when first lighting
  • Stacking logs next to stoves
  • Advice for single-vent burners
