Just sort of shut it down for the night. I pulled the fan that draws the air through. Stove temp is up over 300f inside that’s a LOT of stored heat considering the 12-1300lbs of mass there! I expect that will still climb a fair amount as there are a ton of coals still in the firebox, probably 2-3 gallons worth. They should burn okay without the aid of the fan and without it forcing cold air through 50 more degrees wouldn’t surprise me a bit. I will however be surprised if the temp isn’t still near or above 300f in the morning. I do need to figure out an automatic way for the air inlet and outlet to close once the temps drop to a certain point so it’s not cooling itself off after the fire dies.
