I put together and loaded my Jora 3 days ago. First couple of days It was hovering at 130. I read somewhere to add a slug of grass clippings to increase the heat. Which I did and voila It jumped up to 145 on the 3rd day. I am very happy with it. My only criticism would be for the company to include instructions to use ratchet straps in set up. Compressing the insulation enough to get the holes to line up is extremely difficult. I will be buying the larger model next.
