    Are We Feeding a Potbelly?

    “Our rule of thumb is never put in that last piece of wood.”
    in Controlling Heat From A Cabin Woodstove.

    A good analogy may be heating with a potbelly stove, where a delay between adding fuel and gaining heat risks a wasteful overshoot, above comfortable room temperature, akin to the rise in weight after eating too much.
