Types of wood and burn times

What types of wood have you guys tried in your stove? One of the places I hunt has a ton of oak and madrone. Just wondering if it would be too hot in my xl titanium.

Also what are the best burn times you guys have had?

Oak will be great , wish I could use it regularly. Best burn times I have heard are using compressed wood like Eco Logs. I heard someone say they had coals 9 hrs later and only reloaded once in a night

confirmed at 100% Kevin,ecologs makes more btu,the stove i used yesterday is 11 inches long and 8 1/2 large and i put 1+1/2 log into it and i end-up without boots,beanie and jacket really quickly(less than 15 minutes) with a temp -16Celcius outside.So i can imagine with my new stove of 16 inches long those logs will heat a tipi quick and nicely.

I will calculate this with my new stove to give a solid answer.
