These are pretty good numbers Manu. Hard to interpret without context, what part of the burn, how it looked during other parts of the burn, etc. A logging meter, or a sequence of samples like this one, will give a lot more info to make interpretations from.
If this is the very best part of a run, you could probably be running hotter, dropping the O2 and burning more CO. They usually test better running as hot as you can bear. Hard wood cut small, dry.
Thank you for you reply Mathewwalker. That was a good moment of the burn,but similar to the previous hour or so. It was The second half of the burn. The first 30 min or so wasn't as Good. Wet fuel, not The best start. We tried burning hotter but The CO went up. Maybe not enough turbulence? Anyways, I had lower expectations for The efficiency, so I think Good enough for such a low cost and "primitive" build.
Can you recommend any info that would help me learn to use and understand better combustion analysis??
I wonder how The temps were? How is cooking in that set-up? Would you recommend it?
The top of the barrel gets pretty hot, as much as 900•F or more if I crack the firebox door, so it gets plenty hot. I just have to watch it close so that the crust doesn’t get overdone before the rest of the pizza.
Hi Orange. I use a magnetic thermometer on the front face of the heat exchanger just as a reference for What I in practice consider a desirable cooking temp, but haven't done any more accurate measurements of inside the oven or elsewhere. I can tell you that in practice it can burn potatoes very fast if put at highest power. I would say that when my thermometer reads 200 to 250 C cooking times are similar to my electric oven at max saying 300C. But for heating if needed can ran in the 350 to 400C range The fire is much closer to the oven, compared to the top of the barrelI in a J.

daniel: in my experience as I am working now on something of that nature, I have thought of making a heat exchanger and distributing the heat through vents using a slower fan. Now after a few years I realize that mass heaters give out primarily radiant heat, for

vesuvius: Do any of you have experience with using the glass from home oven doors on a rocket stove? I'd like to have a viewing port on my stove but don't want to fork out for new ceramic glass. Any thought as to whether it would take the heat of a rocket stove?
