Re: Mikado first run

My Mikado does not have a super heater. I am also using a steam rated straight ball valve. In the smokebox. I wrapped it with pink house insulation wrapped that with wire, and it has performed very well for 10 years now. It was purchased from McMaster Carr or MSC , can't remember.
