Update... BTW... at the beginning of the season, I re-cemented the custom raised angle bricks... these are about 2" in height. These allow
easy removal of ash along the side and rear corners, just slice across the tops thru the front and dislodge the ash.
Running the stove at 700 F sometimes requires more shaking and slicing, and recharging, especially when using only nut coal. Pea and Nut
extends the process somewhat, sometimes, but not always. A full range of STOVE, NUT, and PEA makes for a long burn at 700 F.
The STOVE coal burned extremely well, reduced to fine ash, so easy to shake... For very cold snaps (sub-zeros) , I hope to acquire a 4-5 bags of
The Stove coal takes a little , just a little longer to ignite.
