Firing update. 7:00 am 10-12-09

I just finished a schedule of 55 minutes deep luxurious sleep, 5 minutes trekking over to the kiln and stoking, from last night from 10:00 pm till around 6:30 am. In about 1 hour I will switch to a 30 minute schedule of stoking.

The temperature in the firebox is a dull red, maybe 400-500 at the most. In the pictures below notice how much wood has been burned. I did burn the largest pieces, they took a couple of hours apiece.  One other thing is the noticeable difference of the color in the back of the fire box. Since I an not using the temperature probe color, time and flame flow at this point are my main two indicators of temperature.
