I've been running it that way, but it still tends to be a little finnicky while trying to get logs to stay lit. It has helped big time in cutting the splits smaller and I've gotten better with leaving the door cracked to have them fully catch. The more smokes the better/easier it gets. The pit itself runs well and holds temps very well.
