Any info on firing with bit coal, techniques, banking? size? how full etc. would be great! Don't worry about insulting my intelligence, as far as coal fired stoves are concerned I don't have any! I thought maybe adding stove size bit to an anthracite fire at shake time banking toward the secondary air inlets (enters stove through holes below door sill)this is preheated air drawn down through top of stove via cast iron tubes beside door either side.I would leave half of the coal bed exposed to burn off volatiles?
