Wet and warm weather can affect the draft so keep an eye on things and make sure that there is no moisture in the hopper (a sign of poor draft). If there is, you can increase the min a few numbers to make more heat go up the chimney. As far as causing red coals to go into the ash pan that is a factor of coal being able toburn completely. I'm not convince that maybe you are just seeing some peices that will not burn completely. A picture would help tremendously.

You can set the Coal-Trol on max and adjust it down until there are no red coals falling off the grate, also check and see how high the flames are. The main thing is don't give up, sometimes it takes a little while to figure out what is going on. :)

Just curious.... How much ash are you getting burning the Jeddo coal? I want to try it because I hear it is good. I seem to get a lot of ash burning Blaschak coal in my Hearth model but I do get great heat. I don't know if it has the same burner but I can go to a 75 max on my Coaltrol on my Hearth model with about a half inch to 1 inch of ash before you see hot coals on the end of the burner.

When I had my handfed local loose was purchased with strong rememberance of it being Jeddo, the ash was significantly finer and less in quantity (~30-40% less...really noticably) than Blashak which I also burner latter in the same season. My current rice (blash) seems to have a small amout of what looks like shale but,,,oppes,,,I'm getting off subject...sorry... :nono:
