As of yesterday, I lit my Hitzer 30-95 for the first time one year ago. I have been reading and entering posts on this forum for just a little longer than one year. It appears that there were many new coal burners this year. Some came to the forum to get help and advise, hopefully got what they wanted, and have moved on. Happily quite a few new members are staying active here and like myself try to help others with what we have learned. The hardCORE of the longer term members have had infinite patience in answering all the questions we newbies have had, over and over. Without this one forum many new coal burners would be struggling or even given up, because there are so few people who have burned coal in the past 40 years or so to learn from... at least outside of PA. Thanks to all and especially Mayor Richard.
