That really blows. It must have been the ashes left in the firebox trapping moisture. Was the flue pipe exposed to the outdoors? Could have been uncovered and allowed rain water to get in and trap it.

All of the above. I was encouraged because the top ashes were dry each time I took a look at it, but when I started shoveling it was nothing but wet mud. There was no standing water at first, but after about 18 hrs, that is what I found. Oh, well. I think I'm going to drain it completely, and have some fun tinkering with ideas before scrapping it. I'm thinking maybe getting a blower for it and trying the whole lava rock thing.
