Ok... Well this is reviving an old topic... But yes!! The smell of FREEDOM!!! The smell of high vol bit in a hand fired can be a bit (haha) overwhelming, but the aroma of some low vol bit is great!

For those of us with interior, unlined chimneys, there is the added bonus of increased stack temps... Which means more heat to the 2nd story in my case.... A 110-120°F wall of masonry kicks out ALOT of heat!

I love the smell also! I have an Antracite stove, but mix Bit into it just to get the smell.

I'm feeling tempted to toss in this lump of Valier's coal I got sitting on the desk! :D
