I got the fire going pretty good now, stove temp 500-600 deg house temp at 78 deg (HOT) outside temp 19 deg, need to work on controling air flow at bottom and air flow to the chimney.
I am afraid to throttle it down (don't want to loose the fire) took me this long to get it somewhat right
How long does the coal usally keep burning before I should check on it to refill?
Want to thank everybody again for all the info to help me get started, hopefuly this will work for me with the coal (is alot cleaner than wood)
Anything else I need to know please tell me
