Friday morning 10/12, approx. 40 degrees outside, admittedly cool inside the house, and the wife was burning propane---again. It's time to crank up the Koker. Since this is my first year with coal, I waited until getting home from work to start the system---I'm assuming for the season, unless we get a couple of weeks of "Indian summer..."
I loaded the system up with 6 bags of NE Pennsylvania's finest. Torched off a mouse and blue flames were dancing within minutes; with, 160K btus of cheap heat blasting out. Woke up to a toasty warm house Saturday morning---actually a little too warm. Guess I need to turn that thermostat down a bit before my wife turns on the A/C!
I've got 8.4 tons of rice, a powerful Keystoker Koker furnace, and a propane delivery man who needs to sign up for unemployment. Now that's a beautiful thing.
