Shovel is 58oz. I'm not sure of the hod but one 50 # bag of nut anthracite will last me 1.25 hods. If that makes sense.
But seriously, they are two very different stoves. I was bringing in two bags of nut every day with the Chubby and I was burning it. Now I feel like I am bringing in one bag of nut a day. I know I'm probably burning more coal with the DS. Its a given. But what does matter is that instead of burning 100# a day and still being cold was not fun for me. Burning 100# a day now and not worrying about being cold is priceless.
My math on how much I'm burning is probably off. I don't know how much coal my hod holds. Its not written on it anywhere. For all I know it could hold 10 pounds. What I do know is that I'm running the DS less than I was the Chubby and I'm getting more heat out of it.
