Asian Salmon and Asparagus

Asian Salmon

This recipe is one of my oldest recipes and the recipe that hooked me on wood-fired cooking. I remember the first time I had it I had just graduated from college, single, broke and had just gone to work for my cousin at his real estate brokerage. After work one day he invited me over and made this salmon for me (otherwise it was another Top Ramen and Peanut Butter Sandwich for me).

All About Air

Wood Stove Air Kit

Outside air kits allow you to supply fresh air from outside the home directly to a Kuma wood stove or fireplace insert. Although a Kuma Stove will operate just fine by drawing room air, many local building codes will require the installation of a fresh air intake.  Both the 3" and the 4" outside air kits now come with 8 feet of flexible aluminum duct. Previously the kits contained 4 feet of flex duct. The new kits also now include an adjustable elbow that allows you to make tighter turns than the flexible ducting will allow. This elbow will be most useful when you are supplying fresh air through the wall behind a leg model stove. As always, the kits also include a hooded wall vent, trim ring, start collar, foil tape, and fasteners.
