Thanks, Gary. My new elements came in. A little disappointed that the hole for one of the elements was too big because of the previous big element I used. I fixed that by cutting one of the small stove element openings from the stove, then pop riveted it in place.
I decided to record some times and temps after the install:
71° outside temp- 69°inside starting temp.
Took 8 minutes to reach 200°
20 minutes to hit 291°
45 minutes to hit 400°
I let it get up to 420° before I backed it down. I'm pretty happy with the 2- 1,000 watt elements. What do you guys think? Did it reach those temps in a decent amount of time?
The last thing I'm going to do is replace the 2" steel pipe that I fill with wood. It just doesn't last long enough- about 2 hours. I have an air supply tank from a tractor trailer that I'm going to cut and weld the 2" pipe to. This will be able to hold much more wood than just the pipe.
