Add 1/2 sheet of crumbled newspaper, cup of crushed cowboy charcoal, 2 cups of coal. Light with torch in small hole in the bottom, turn on stove, wait 5 or so minutes, turn stove off knock steel cylinder into ash bucket for retrieval at next ash cleanout. Turn stove back on and you are in business.
I've tried the exact same thing, but for some reason, the coal keeps going out. I manage to get about half a cup of anthracite nice and hot and burning with a blue flame, but as I start adding a little more anthracite , the fire eventually goes out. Any suggestions on how to proceed ? (this is the first I've had a coal stove)
