Just got an (outdoor) barrel sauna with exterior wood stove. Installation by manufacturer. According to manual, the stove needs to be fired up for an hour or so to burn off / cure some possible residues from manufactoring. We did that, but after a total of 6 hours of (attempted) use, there is still some stinging fume in the sauna, as soon as it gets hot. Does anyone have any experience with this? Is this „normal“ for a new Sauna?
