A stoker may be the answer for you like shortbus suggested. Stokers using bituminous smoke very little but that would mean replacing your stove. I have a stokermatic coal furnace and it makes very little smoke but they don't look anything like your stove and some people don't like the looks of them sitting in the living room. Another issue is availability, these furnaces are not in production any more and can be hard to find in some areas. Here in Utah they can still be found but are becoming rare as time goes on. These heaters require electricity to run and use stoker size coal.
Here is a link showing what these furnaces look like.http://www.peasefeedandcoal.com/Mountain-Man-85.html
If you are interested in finding a furnace like this watch craigslist/local ads ect. for them....stokermatic, firetender and combustioneer are the most common models.
Are you getting your coal at Healy?
