There are several hand load stoves that burn Bituminous coal pretty well. I know member Greg White is happy with burning my leftover WV bituminous in his Harman SF150.
Forum member Dan McCartney also burns Bituminous coal in a LOPI fireplace insert.
Forum member Berlin is our resident Bituminous expert, he burns Bitum. in a stove of his own design and construction that burn bituminous very well. He posted plans on the 'how to' forum.
I believe once you learn the characteristics of your local bituminous coal, you could burn it in most hand-load stoves. Bituminous coal varies widely in burn characteristics. Some smokes very bad when first ignited [high volitiles], some makes huge hard clinkers [low ash-fusion temperature or AFT], and some burns very similar to Anthracite [low smoke and very little clinker]. It all varies with the mine and vein of coal being mined.
Most if not all in-production stoker stoves/boilers/furnaces are designed to burn anthracite. Anthracite coal is very clean burning, consistant in burn characteristics and doesn't form hard clinkers or coke-trees that would mess up the stoker units.
Hope this helps. Greg L
