Bar of Pig Iron

I fill the smelter up with 12 iron ore and 13 lime and only ever get 1 bar of pig iron. Anyone know why?

You usually get between a 1 bar and 2 bars.
By using a alloying set, you'll get 2 bars more often.

When do I need to wear it? When I mine the ore? When I light the smelter? When I place the ore into the smelter? During the wrole smelting process till the moment I take the bar(s) out?

You need to wear it when lighting the smelter.

How would you prefer the Alloying bonus be transfered to the smelter if not the point of lighting it?

Correct. It's dumb how much waste happens. If there is a formula I'm missing that will give me a better chance of getting 2 or 3 Pig Iron, ok, then I'm dumb and I haven't figured it out yet, but if it's just how it is, it's dumb to have such a low random chance of getting 1 iron from 12 ore and 13 lime per run.
