    Thanks Oscar, on the far side of the stove there is an intake air control. It's a butterfly valve on the intake duct that is part of the stove. It won't shut the air off completely but it will restrict it very well if you turn it down. Most of the time we simply leave it wide open and just let the fire burn at it's own rate. It doesn't show in the photo, but on the other side of the black chimney pipe there is a thermometer to tell us if the stove is burning too hot, or too cool. Earth stoves were built very well with simple fire controls, and they work great. But they do smoke, so some places, like cities, don't allow them.
    Planning to be here through it all.............

    Yeah, we wouldn't want that nasty ole wood smoke mixing in with the carbon monoxide spewing buses, trucks, trains, river boats, cars or other burning debri would we?
