    G200 is pretty easy to operate. If you do these things you'll be fine:

    1. Keep a good coal bed. I like mine to come up to where the panels clip into the side walls (that will make more sense when you see it).
    2. When you load it, move all the coals away from the nozzle...then place one medium sized piece right over the nozzle...then rake the coals back around the fresh piece of wood you just put in. Place the rest of the wood nice and tight in a pyramid right over the nozzle...this will help with bridging.
    3. Burn at least some "softer" wood (cherry, maple, etc) in your mix during low demand periods....this will help the thing stay lit.

    I visit my boiler twice a day. I load it in the evening and then next morning I shake the turbulator handles and "knock down" whatever wood is left from the night before and re-arrange it back over the nozzle. I could probably skip the morning routine if I wanted, but I don't mind it.
