It is now August 05 and the Jotul is still burning 24/7 at an idle. I just mined some old coal out of an old basement. I was able to recover two tons for $175. This price also included a few other items the home owner wanted out before she had the house torn down. I found some blue and red coal. Always interesting to find the painted coal. I have been burning some of the relcaimed coal for over two weeks now. I want to save it for this winter so I will change over to my blaschak coal. The stove is set with at one and a half draft setting and is idling at 300 degrees. I love burning coal in the summer. Yesterday a friend of mine who tried to burn stove coal in his outside wood burner called me and wanted to know if I wanted the remaining coal. I picked up a half ton of kimmels stove coal for free. This is good since I mix stove and nut when the temp falls below zero for weeks at a time. Only a few more weeks before I would usually start burning the stove. Looks like I will not have to start the stove since it will still be burning. I can't wait until the snow starts falling.
